Choose the Right Wills and Estates Lawyers
Choosing the right wills and estates lawyer is a highly personal decision. You want a great lawyer; someone who is also a really nice person; someone who can help you deal with your valuable and sometimes sentimental assets. There isn’t much point in dealing with someone that has no insight into you or your family. You want to engage a lawyer that makes you feel comfortable. Someone that puts a smile on your face.
Make sure your loved ones are looked after. You don’t want them to lose their inheritance through a failed marriage or contested wills and estates dispute. Our wills and estates lawyers and family lawyers are highly skilled, experienced and caring people. They will guide you and help to protect your interests and those of your family. They will treat you like family and make you feel comfortable. That’s why our clients recommend us.

We don’t inflict 21 year old graduate lawyers on our clients. All of our wills and family lawyers are highly experienced, mature and compassionate professionals. They have spouses, children, investments and mortgages just like our clients. They have dealt with elderly parents, life and income insurance, investments, balancing budgets, loss and grief.
Many of our lawyers have had a previous career and tertiary qualifications. Our people have expertise in diverse areas such as business, science, engineering, sales and property management. They are well-rounded and caring people who are able to understand the issues that affect you and your family. You will appreciate the breadth of their experience and understanding.
We offer an additional service for Wills and estates that not all law firms provide. We register each Will that we prepare with the Wills Register maintained by the Law Society of South Australia – at no extra cost. There are several benefits of registering a Will. For example, if a person passes away and their executor is unaware of the Will’s whereabouts, they will be able to locate it through searching the Register. Registering a Will also helps to avoid anyone passing “intestate” (without a Will), and having their property dispersed according to state laws rather than what was outlined in their last Will and testament.
Pricing is Important
We understand that price is important. See: How long will it take and how much does it cost?
In many cases, our clients are dealing with assets with sentimental value that have been accumulated over a lifetime. In many cases, our wills and estates lawyers are able to provide our clients with a fixed price. Services such an Application for Probate or the preparation of Testamentary Trust Wills or Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Advance Care Directives.
In situations where our clients need wills and estates lawyers to protect an inheritance or to dispute a will, it is often difficult to accurately estimate costs. The ultimate cost will often depend on the attitude of the other parties. In most contested Wills and estates matters we don’t expect our clients to pay until the end of the matter but we keep them informed about costs along the way by providing monthly statements throughout the matter.
