Wills and estate planning

Making a Will that's right for you

Will power! Why making a will matters

The glib quip ‘Where’s there’s a will there’s a relative’ is popular with comedians, eager to poke fun.

However when it comes to wills there’s a serious side, with national law firm Stone King knowing it’s hard enough dealing with the death of a loved one without the added stress of managing the legal aspects.

It makes sense to leave your affairs in order so loved ones can negotiate their way through legalities more easily at what can be a very difficult time.
