When considering your Will, we recommend planning for future incapacity to ensure important decisions regarding your finances, investments, superannuation entitlements, maximising financial strategies for your family, medical treatment or living arrangements can be made by a person or persons trusted to make these decisions on your behalf.

DIY wills are legal, but they do not cover potential legal contingencies, should your will be contested or fail to reflect your wishes in changed circumstances. Our costs are very reasonable compared to the risk of having your will account for any unforeseen circumstances that may arise.
