    If the donor still has mental capacity, then they, the donor, should change the will. 
    I can foresee all sorts of legal challenges arising from those who maybe adversely affected if the attorney did it, very much open to abuse in some circumstances I would think

    Attorneys can’t make a will for the donor under any conditions. If the donor still has mental capacity I can’t understand why they can’t arrange it themselves.
