Wills & Powers of Attorney

Wills

A Will lays out what will happen to your assets and debts when you pass away. It gives one or more persons the control of managing your wishes and distributing your estate, and you can decide who should benefit from your estate. You can choose to leave someone out of your Will, but this can be difficult depending on who they are.

It is important to draft a valid Will that clearly outlines your last wishes as otherwise this burden will fall to your family and loved ones. 

Powers of Attorney

A Power of Attorney gives another person, or multiple people, decision making power over your financial and/or personal affairs while you are still alive. A Power of Attorney can be for a set task or time period, such as enabling someone to sign real estate contracts on your behalf. It can also start immediately or when you lose the capacity to make decisions. 

A Medical Treatment Decision Maker sets out who will make medical decisions for you if you are unable to do so. It does not take into account your views and wishes about your medical treatment.

An Advance Care Directive can specify your preferences for your future medical treatment and who will make those decisions. 

Our lawyers provide guidance and advice to help you decide which of these documents are best for you and how to set them up in a way which reflects your wishes. 

We provide free storage for original documents to ensure they remain safe and secure until they are required.

Client testimonials

Hi. Thanks so much for all your hard work and efficiency. Please thank Marlene for me also for all her hard work and for a great outcome. Hope you both have a great Christmas and all the very best for 2018. Thanks and best wishes.

Brett

I cannot thank both Marlene and you enough for everything you’ve done. You both made everything so easy and there was no stress. Thank you and wishing you both a wonderful Christmas and fabulous New Year.

Megan

My son has recently gone through a separation and custody dispute with the assistance of Marlene, I cannot praise their service enough. He was provided with open and honest advice throughout this whole ordeal. Marlene’s expertise put us all at peace as we navigated an area none of us were familiar with. She responded promptly to all our questions, with very clear advice and suggestions (even though they may of seemed to her like silly questions) . I cannot recommend this service higher, I certainly hope we don’t need their services again but if we do we won’t hesitate to contact them. We can’t thank Marlene enough for all she did and all her expertise.

Merrin
Megan, the work you’ve been doing for this family has helped change a systemic narrative that has not historically been kind to Sarah* and the children. I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for them, and I sincerely hope you go home feeling so immensely proud of all your work and accomplishments.
