BBC Breakfast Show interviews Jane Gray, Stowe Family Law LLP f

Today Jane Gray the head of the Wills & Probate service at Stowe Family Law was interviewed by BBC Radio London.

To listen, just follow this link.  Jane starts talking 2.14.34 into the programme.

The programme focuses on how the Legal Ombudsman has called on the government to consider how to help thousands of consumers who have nowhere to turn if their will was poorly written or if they’ve been ripped off by the service provider. Buying a will is fraught with risk and uncertainty according to his latest report. Wills can be prepared by anyone in principle and research suggests some 180,000 wills each year are being written by non-lawyers. The Ombudsman is concerned that this leaves consumers exposed. Jane discusses the advantages of wills written by a solicitor v wills downloaded off the internet.

Stowe Family Law’s Holly Lamb was quoted in the Telegraph this morning.

She was discussing the story of the 180 Italian divorces which were recently annulled by the High Court.

The scam was uncovered when 179 of the couples had registered at the same address in Maidenhead, which turned out to be a PO Box.

Sir James Munby noted:

Indeed, given the dimensions of the mail box it is clear that not even a single individual, however small, could possibly reside in it.”

Who says judges don’t have a sense of humour?
