Estate Planning
for South Australians
who want more
than just a will

Estate planning isn't just writing a will, it's a chance to play a game I call "What does it look like if you die this year?"...

Ticking boxes or filling in an online form isn't the same as sitting down with an experienced professional to work out who and what is important to you, tapping into their experience to really understand what life will look like for the people you love after you die, and then making sure everything in your head and your heart add up legally so your family aren't left fighting for you (or themselves) after you die.

We'll help you decide who you would like to manage your estate and distribute your assets to your beneficiaries after your death and nominate them as your Executors(s).

We'll help you decide who you can trust to look after your finances and decision-making if you are no longer able to do so and nominate them as your Power Of Attorney.
