Peter spent many years in Financial Services during which time he became increasingly concerned by the number of his clients who not only did not have Wills but also the client’s apathy in making one. To address this disturbing attitude, Peter decided to become qualified to take Will instructions himself. It did not take him long to realise that the field of Estate Planning was a large and complicated area and was not something he could do as an ancillary service for clients. Therefore in 1997 Peter took the decision to become a full time Estate Planner and he joined a National Will Writing Company as a Will Instruction Taker. After a few years became a Sales Manager working closely with the Operations Director to re-vamp the company.
In 2000 Peter took out a franchise with the company and became qualified to also write Wills and the associated legal documents i.e. Lasting Power of Attorney etc. At this stage the company started to recruit their own Will Instruction Takers. In 2005 Peter ceased the franchise and started his own independent Will writing company “Deedsafe Wills & Legal Services”.
