UK Website Probate Wizard Automatically Generates Wills

March 27th, 2012

From LegalFutures:

The launch of theProbate Wizardcomes as Legal Futures can reveal that the Law Society has established a working group to explore the legal and regulatory implications of online legal services.

Separately, the Nuffield Foundation is funding an investigation into whether, and to what extent, online and telephone advice can replace face-to-face legal services.

Created by probate solicitor Tom Hiskey and IT developer Rob Blake under the Law Wizard banner, the Probate Wizard generates the grant of probate and inheritance tax forms based on information provided by the user. These are then checked for common errors – but not the legal content – by the Probate Wizard team and returned to the customer within two days to print and sign.
