Queensland Wills Lawyer
While a Will is not the most riveting document, it is often the most important document you will ever sign – so it is crucial that you work with an experienced and professional Solicitor who can understand your family’s dynamics. It’s easy to get caught up in life’s adventures – but what would happen if you passed away? The stress on your family will be far worse if you don’t have a Will. Estate Planning is critical to protecting your loved ones and ensuring that your wishes are carried out when the inevitable strikes. Don’t take the gamble with a simple online Will, get professional advice and a personalised Will from just $499. You will have direct access to our Solicitors to ask questions and make amendments.
The risk of not having a water tight estate plan, is that if you pass away without a Will (die intestate), then the Government will take control and distribute your assets according to strict legislation. Why not prevent your family having to spend an enormous amount of time and money battling through this process, especially at what is already a very emotional time?
Our estate planning packages provide you with the following documents:
· Will – A Will comes into effect when you pass away and specifies who is to control your estate, who inherits your wealth, who takes care of your children etc. It is important that you review your Will if you or any of your beneficiaries divorce, pass away or get married, as it could severely impact on your estate
· Enduring Power of Attorney – A Power of Attorney authorises another person(s) to act on your behalf during your lifetime – eg. while you’re in a coma and unable to make decisions, look after your children, delay mortgage repayments etc
· Death Benefit Nomination – It is important to direct your superannuation fund as to how to distribute your entitlements upon death, as this will significantly minimise the time and money involved in accessing the payout (plus it is more tax effective than leaving your superannuation fund to distribute it to your estate)

We met with Lauren in 2015 to discuss Estate Planning. It wasn’t something we necessarily wanted to do, no one really wants to think about or discuss situations that usually require a Will of POA, however we knew we had to protect our daughter and her future. Lauren explained all possible scenarios and together we decided on a plan that best suited our needs. Now that it’s done we can be reassured that if and when we are not here or able to make decisions on our own, that our future and our daughters is what we want. We would definitely recommend Lauren to anyone that is looking to discuss their Estate needs. She was very professional and very personable.
Lauren was fantastic. She thought ahead and ensured all possible scenarios were considered. Extremely helpful and genuinely interested in looking after us. I would highly recommend.

Having a blended family plus a few investment properties and businesses to factor in, we knew our Wills weren’t going to be a walk in the park. We were so happy that Lauren took the time to walk through our concerns and make sure our family would be ok when we pass away. Lauren was compassionate and professional, traits that really helped us when we didn’t know what we needed.
