    Reputable solicitor

    After reading the new legal column in this weeks Voices, I think the time has come to bite the bullet and get Turkish wills drawn up. We've put it off because of lots of conflicting advice but now think it'sq better to be safe than sorry. So the $64,0000 question is...wait for it...can anyone...
