About Athena Wills
A little bit about me...
Hello and thank you for stopping by to find out more about Athena Wills. I am Gail, very pleased to meet you. So who am I? I am the person who you speak to about making your Will, the person who drafts your documents, and your point of contact throughout the whole process. I am ‘Athena Wills’ you might say.
I set up Athena Wills Ltd with the aim of providing a bespoke and friendly service, making it easy for people to make their Wills with confidence. I believe that good service goes a long way and means being approachable and consistent.
I pride myself on being personable and professional, offering a holistic, reliable and affordable online Will writing service.
My background is a simple story, I come from Shropshire and I worked with military students for nearly 16 years. Whilst I enjoyed the job, I wanted to look at other options. I’ve always had a keen interest in Law so I started studying Business with the Open University and from there I opted to study for a Law degree. Having successfully gained my Law Degree, I developed a keen interesting in Private Client Law. I decided in 2016 to set up my own business so that I could create something that balances my interest in Law with meeting and helping people.
When I’m not helping people with their Wills, I love spending time with my husband and our dog, I enjoy travelling, photography, exploring the outdoors and I’m pretty good at crochet.

Why 'Athena Wills'?
Are you wondering about how I decided on the name? Well, I chose ‘Athena Wills’ because in Greek mythology Athena represented wisdom and warfare.
Additionally, the Olive Tree is a symbol of Athena, which I believe represents a strong, healthy family unit. After all everyone likes to think of their family tree and looking after one another for years to come.
I see the warfare element in two parts, it is very important to me that Athena Wills is run honestly, ethically and professionally. I’ve worked very hard to ensure that I’m qualified to give the best possible advice and service, by being fully insured, trained and a member of the IPW and STEP, following their Code of Conduct at all times.
All Willwriters are NOT the same; many are unqualified, uninsured and unregulated. I am therefore declaring ‘war’ as such, on those that are not.
Secondly, in a slightly different sense I am very proud to support the British Armed Forces and UK Emergency Services to who I am extremely pleased to offer a discounted service to all serving personnel and their partners.
