Gail-Athena-Wills-Director-Will-Writing-ServicesIt’s not every day that you make a Will and you may well be curious about what is involved. You will likely have questions and it may not always be easy to find an answer that you are able to trust or one that matches your particular circumstances. My name is Gail and I run Athena Wills Ltd. I can help you talk through your options and concerns, discuss the things that you need to consider, offer support and guidance based on your personal circumstances and produce documents bespoke to your needs.

All from the comfort of your own home and at a time that suits you. I am an independent Will writer based in Carterton, Oxfordshire and travel within West Oxfordshire and the surrounding areas.

I am legally trained, fully insured, a member of the Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW) and an affiliate member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

Appointments are available 9am-8pm Monday – Friday and 10am-2pm Saturday and Sunday. If you have any questions or you’d like to book an appointment, please contact me.

What Our Clients Have To Say

We were so pleased to have Gail doing our Will’s and LPA’s. We could not have wished for a better service, both informative and caring. We did not know about Gail until by chance we looked for a will writing service that we could do at home, this was to be the best thing as it was a relaxing atmosphere. We would both recommend Gail to anyone, they will not be disappointed. Gail thank you, we loved our meetings with you.

Ms. S A

August 2018

Having never made a will or LPA before. I am not sure what to expect. Gail was very professional, understanding and patient. She listened and advised us to our needs. Gail was not ‘pushy’ in selling her products. It felt I had a friend round for a coffee and a chat. I would definitely recommend Gail to anyone who was thinking of making a Will.

Mrs. M P H

August 2018

Excellent all round – courteous, friendly. Able to help with all our questions and queries. Guided my 91-year-old mother through the whole process. Step by step documentation prepared to go through any points we weren’t quite sure about until we had grasped them. Would certainly recommend.
