    In California, the only Will that does not require witness signatures is a holographic Will. ?That must be entirely in the testator's [person making the Will] handwriting and there can be absolutely no typing on it.

    No. If you bring such a will to my office, I will review it and if satisfactory, conduct a will signing ceremony. At no charge.

    If the will is typed, it is not written, and therefore not valid without witnesses signing over the appropriate attestation clause.
