Wills are an essential aspect of managing your personal and business assets, necessitating thorough planning and consideration. With situations involving blended families, disabled children, and changes in life, our team is ready to provide advice and help in creating your Will, deciding who will oversee your Estate (Executor) and who will benefit from your assets (Beneficiaries).

It’s vital to create a Will to ensure all your loved ones are provided for and that your assets are distributed according to your desires after your death.

Though the process of making a Will may seem daunting, our team is here to guide you at each step to minimize the likelihood of someone contesting your Will. Wills are typically contested if a family member is excluded or inadequately provided for. Other claims may stem from issues such as lack of capacity, undue influence, and breach of trust.

Enduring Power of Attorney (Financial)

This legal document enables you to nominate a trustworthy person (named as “the attorney”) to handle your personal, financial, legal, and property matters if you lose the mental capacity to manage them yourself.

An Enduring Power of Attorney is conferred upon an individual you trust to make suitable financial and personal judgments on your behalf.

Among the tasks an attorney can execute on your behalf are: bill payments, document signing, property transactions, and managing shares or bank accounts.

Medical Treatment Decision

Each person has the right to make their own medical treatment choices. Yet, if you are incapacitated and unable to make decisions, whether temporarily or permanently, you can designate a medical proxy who can make medical decisions for you. Selecting someone to make these decisions can be challenging, but our team can provide guidance and support in determining who and when to appoint a trusted individual to handle your medical decisions.
