A WESTON legal firm is holding free workshops showing how to make sure your family are put in charge of your assets if you fall ill.
Trust Inheritance is opening the doors of its head office in Stafford Place to provide information and advice on creating legal documents.
The company, which specialises in wills, probate, bereavement services and lasting power of attorneys, has been based in the town for more than 20 years.
Lawyers at the firm hope this free session will encourage people to put these important documents in place to protect family interests.
Company lawyer Andrea Mapstone said: “A lasting power of attorney is as important as a will - they allow you to appoint someone you trust, whether it be your husband, wife, children or a friend, to act on your behalf if you are unable to manage your own affairs or make your own decisions, for example as a result of an illness or an accident.
You may also want to watch:
“Unfortunately, many people are unaware these documents exist until they are put into a situation where one is needed. Often at this point it is too late, leaving family and dependants having to seek a court order which can be very costly and time consuming.”
As well as explaining the importance of these documents during the workshops, the lawyers will also show how you can draft them yourself at home. The first session is on Wednesday from 6.30-7.30pm at the office in Crown House.
