Where there’s a Will – by David Sonenberg

David Sonenberg, our LIV Accredited Specialist in Wills and Estate, has just published an article in the Law Institute Journal concerning a recent Court of Appeal decision that found suspicious circumstances arose so as to cast doubt on the Will maker’s approval of his will. The case is VEALL v ANOR & VEALL. This case highlights the important role solicitors play in creating valid wills for elderly or infirm clients. This can be a very difficult process and we encourage clients to contact us if an elderly or infirm person wants to make a will.
