When it comes to planning for the future you need a lawyer who can not only provide you with effective and comprehensive advice but also one who is sensitive to what can often be a difficult topic.
Our Wills and Estate Planning service empowers you to be in control of your future. From how you would like your Estate to be dealt with to assigning Guardianship powers (which can enable others to make important decisions about your care when you may not be able to) we can help.
We can also provide advice regarding Powers of Attorney as well as the ability to update your Will when needed to accommodate changes in your life.

For Probate applications, our professional costs are charged by reference to a set scale determined by the Supreme Court of NSW and depending on the value of the estate.
Disbursements include the fee to publish a Probate Notice and the fee required to file the Application with the Supreme Court of NSW. Again, this fee is determined by the value of the estate and currently ranges from $687 to $1,741.
Estates valued at under $50,000 do not incur a filing fee.
We are also able to assist you in calling in and distributing the Estate according to the Will after Probate is granted. This work is not regulated under the Supreme Court scale of costs and will incur additional professional fees based on the size of the Estate and the work required.
