I mentioned the potential impact that media coverage of these court cases can have on the decisions that people may make when deciding to do their own Will.
A few months later in early 2018, we became involved in a similar court case concerning a Will which was also recorded on a mobile phone.
Whilst we were successful, the case again illustrates that while informal Wills can be accepted by the Supreme Court, there is a far better alternative.

I'm not going to tell you here what these changes are today - as criminals are monitoring websites, social media platforms, emails etc!
What I will explain today are the changes being made by government agencies that will impact how you and I engage with each other in the future!
