Wills and estate planning | Australia

Have you appointed a guardian for your kids?

I get it. Thinking about what your family will do if you die or become incapacitated is no fun. It can feel overwhelming, especially if you’ve never written a Will (or you haven’t updated your Will for ages).

And if you’ve got children, it feels even harder. Choosing a guardian for your children can feel scary and stressful.

But if your Will is unclear (or non-existent), it can be a real headache for the people you leave behind. Leaving clear, legally binding instructions about your estate is your final act of love for your family.

For regional families who finally want to tick Wills and estate planning off the list.

With over a decade of specialist experience in Wills and estate planning, I’ve got you covered. Together we’ll create a bespoke package to suit your needs, including:

At Demeter Legal, it’s all about you. With unique, flat-fee packages to suit your circumstances, you’ll get all the guidance you need to get the job done.

When it comes to Wills and estate planning, it pays to be proactive. It helps to ensure that your property, superannuation, possessions, and even your pets end up in the right hands.

Protect your family (and breathe easier) thanks to pragmatic, proactive legal advice.

With flexible hours and virtual consulting, peace of mind is (quite literally) at your fingertips

The hardest thing about estate planning is getting around to it. It feels scary and depressing, which makes it a huge candidate for the ‘too hard’ basket.

Not only that, traditional law offices don’t exactly make it convenient, do they? They can be hard to contact (especially with little ones under foot) and expensive.

What if you could get a full suite of estate documents (and a secure future for your family) without leaving the house?

None of us can predict the future. But putting your estate in order is the best way to support your family if the worst should happen.

Expert advice. Pragmatic support. Wherever you are.

Fixed-fee services mean you’ll get the support you need to get the job done — without watching the clock. As a member of the Australian Association of Collaborative Professionals, it’s my mission to support growth, longevity, and positive outcomes for rural, regional, and remote families.

Collaborative Practice in estate planning identifies potential conflicts and works to address them before someone dies. No matter how complicated your situation, I’m here to help with judgement-free support and a network of collaborative professionals who have the same goals you do.

The old days are over

Despite a love of classical music and a range of ‘old-timey’ hobbies (any English paper piecing enthusiasts in the house?) I’m a huge fan of technology when it comes to my law practice.

Technology makes access to expert legal advice more accessible, more inclusive, and less costly

And I’m over the moon about it. Dealing with an online law firm has got stacks of benefits.

Without the usual invoice-padding back and forth of a traditional law firm, you’ll come to a positive resolution in less time.
An easy online system puts you in charge — provide information on your terms and meet with your lawyer on your schedule.

Clear, value-based and fixed fee packages mean you’ll know my fees up front.

No surprises.
