I think you're getting confused here.
The husband warned the Solicitor off contacting the Wife directly by phone but subsequently instructed them to send out his and her engrossed Wills for signing.
I wasn't after an outcome I was simply asking for an opinion:
Did the solicitor have a duty to do more in the original circumstances outlined.
You said no - the solicitor didn't have a duty.
I then questioned that with Larke v Nugus duties and case law relating to the failure of a Solicitor to assist his client in executing his Will.
The real issue, as I see it, is did the Solicitor have a duty to do more in 2011... I'm hoping they did but if you don't think they did then that's fair enough.
The reason I think that is the real issue is because if the Solicitor had asked about my mother's health they might have found out she was gravely ill and that therefore the Solicitor should have followed the "Golden Rule"... or failing that supervised the execution of the Will themselves etc.
I wasn't after quantification of loss or a discussion about causation issues either - because it may be it's "pure speculation" what my mother would have done if the Solicitor had supervised the execution himself or followed the Golden Rule and involved a medical practitioner.
