Making a Will is something many people do not think about until it is too late. In the absence of a Will, your assets will be distributed according to a statutory formula. We can formalize your wishes about how you would like your estate distributed after you pass away. Once prepared, your Will can be stored in our secure deeds department for safe-keeping.
Powers of attorney allow you to choose who will make decisions about financial and personal matters if you cannot make such decisions yourself.
An appointment of a medical treatment decision maker allows you to choose someone to make medical treatment decisions on your behalf when you no longer have the capacity to do so yourself. These documents play an important part in planning for the future. We can provide you with advice about the best option for you and prepare the necessary documents.
We also deal with challenges to Wills and family provision claims.
If you have been left out of a Will or are inadequately provided for in a Will and are an eligible person under the legislation, you may be able to apply for a family provision order. Our Wills & Estates practitioners are experienced in estate disputes. We provide representation to claimants, executors, and beneficiaries.
We don’t charge for initial phone calls. We are up front about costs before we start, and sometimes we can quickly resolve your issue over the phone.
