Terms & conditions
Is Will Wizard a law firm?
No. Will Wizard relies on the sophisticated documentation and advice of third party specialist estate planning solicitors who have over 30 years of experience drafting comprehensive Wills that provide testamentary trusts and other modern risk minimising provisions. But Will Wizard itself is not a law firm. We are an incorporated Australian company that merges your preferences and nominations with sophisticated legal documentation via our online technology.
By removing our customer’s need to meet with a lawyer in person, we are able to provide high-end modern estate planning Wills and support documents at a fraction of the cost of meeting with a specialist estate planning lawyer in person.
Our mission is to provide Australian families with access to affordable and comprehensive Wills that provide testamentary trusts. Please see our full terms and conditions below.
