Wills must not be viewed as commodities
The emergence of new online technology and law firm models based in a retail setting has sparked conversations over the value the public places on wills and their necessity, says Toronto estate lawyer Mary Wahbi.
This is one of the most important things someone is going to do in their life, she says of creating a will. It’s not a minor issue – it’s huge and its implications are enormous.
Do-it-yourself online wills are becoming more popular, says Wahbi, and new retail practice models have focused more on offering accessible, affordable services.
