Engaging a wills and estates lawyer is a big decision, and it's often difficult to know where to start. If you're making a will or engaging in estate planning, your lawyer should actively listen to and understand your instructions. They should have the expertise to:
- Accommodate your wishes
- Minimise taxation
- Consider any business succession requirements
- Give you superannuation advice
- Reduce the threat of litigation
If you've lost a loved one, you need a compassionate lawyer who understands how hard it is to finalise an estate while dealing with grief and family tensions. It's a difficult time. The stress of navigating the legalities of probate or administration can be overwhelming.
The key is to find a lawyer who offers a warm and familiar family environment. Someone with specialist experience in succession law, with the ability to manage any property, business, taxation and superannuation issues.
Your lawyer should also prioritise straightforward communication. No complicated legal jargon. No lofty legal principles that only a judge can understand. And no unexplained Latin words.
We're proud that our legal services embody these principles and priorities. Welcome to Succession Legal. We're here to help.
