Law Society of NSW
Having a will prepared professionally could save your estate much higher legal fees if your will is contested or has to be interpreted by a court.
The Law Society of NSW offers a solicitor referral service connecting members of the profession to the general public who may require legal advice, including help when making a will.
The service draws from a database of around 1,600 private law firms who've registered their details, areas of law and other practice information with the society.
You submit your request and the society searches for firms that are likely to meet your needs, and provides you with their contact details.
The referral service is free. However, firms will charge their normal fees. You should ask about costs of your first appointment before booking as not all law firms on the society's database provide a free initial consultation.
The society also offers a pro bono scheme that can put you in touch with law firms willing to provide legal services for free or at a reduced cost.
You will need to meet the criteria, including a means test, before making an application.
