In this light-hearted chat, John will give us plenty of anecdotes to illustrate the many practical hurdles and challenges he has met and still meets when making Wills and Enduring Powers of Attorney, in the Administration of Estates and in Wards of Court, with some great tips on avoiding pitfalls for the unsuspecting!
