My friend fell out with his Solicitor/ Financial Deputy and

Customer Question

My friend fell out with his Solicitor/ Financial Deputy and asked me to help him make a Will and so we used a reputable online company. He subsequently died and after probate was granted his original Solicitor/Deputy took it on himself to write out to everone on the original Will to tell them that the will had been changed and provided them with copies of both Wills. He also wrote to all the banks involved telling them that there was the chance of a claim and because of this I cannot gather in the information. I have now received this XXXXX v XXXXX document to fill in but it appears to be geared to Solicitors. Was what the original Solicitor did legal and should I fill in the XXXXX v XXXXX?
