        No matter what you do some people are always negative. The flyer says clearly the Will is free. It doesn't say all legal services are free. Obviously is you have other matters that are not listed as free then those services are not fee. We need to read and comprehend.

    Nice to see such an initiative from Harneys. Contrary to what @lol says - this should actually reduce the need for lawyers to get involved "on the back end" - a clearly written and easily understood document from the deceased eliminates the oportunity / need for litigation.
