Wills and Estate Planning

Estate planning is about more than preparing a will. Our trusted estate planning lawyers consider your personal situation and determine the appropriate solution to protect both your assets and your family. We work closely with you to understand and manage your financial affairs to give you peace of mind.

If you die without a will, you are said to die ‘intestate’, and your assets are distributed according to legislation enacted in each State and Territory of Australia. Even if your particular situation and your financial affairs are simple, this distribution of your assets may not be as you would have wished.

Contact our estate planning expert to discuss your specific circumstances.
