Join us to help charity this November

Are you interested in using your legal skills for good causes? In November 2013, around 1,500 UK solicitors took part in Will Aid, helping nethousands of new clients write wills and raising an expected  £2 million for charity.  Better still, 85% of participating solicitors reported that joining Will Aid gained them fee-earning business, as well as positive local publicity*.

What is Will Aid?

Will Aid is simple. You waive your fee for writing a basic Will – instead you invite your client to make a similar donation to the Will Aid charities.

Why should I take part?

In brief: the feel-good factor of supporting good causes, plus the opportunity to promote your practice and meet new clients.

Will Aid worked for me

"Chenery Maher take part in the Will Aid scheme for business & personal reasons: we see people who would not otherwise have instructed us, who we hope will become clients in the future. Partners and staff alike get a warm glow from knowing we have helped make a difference to the plight of people less fortunate than ourselves."
