Signatures on a Will
I'm type A, most attorneys are. When I coordinate a will signing for a client I have them sign and date at the end, but I also have them sign the bottom of each page. Occasionally I hear some grumbling, mainly from witnesses who sign each page as well. But, when I read about cases where will challenges were based on the fact the will only had one signature line, I'm glad I'm thorough. Certainty, to the extent anything can be "certain", is a large component of what I provide to my clients.
