Wills & Estates
One of the most difficult times in a person’s life is dealing with the estate of a loved one.
The best way for you to make sure that this affects your loved ones as little as possible is by ensuring that you have a Will, Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship in place so that your wishes are clearly known.
All three of these documents are extremely important if you suffer some misfortune which leaves you incapable of giving clear instructions or managing your affairs.
We understand that you want your intentions clearly followed and can assist you in the preparation of your Will, Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship to make sure that your wishes are carried out.
Being Left Out of, or unfairly treated in a Will
Whether you have been left out of a Will completely or you feel the Will is one-sided, it is important to seek legal advice to make sure you are being fairly treated. You only have 12 months to lodge a claim in the Supreme Court to explore your entitlements in a Will.
We have wide experience in these matters and regularly conduct successful claims on behalf of clients in the Supreme Court.
In our experience, the challenge to a Will can be a serious and stressful time for a person. We will take the time to advise you about your rights and entitlements and only institute proceedings if we are confident of success.
Separation is a time of confusion and turmoil for your family and the law is not always an easy thing to understand, especially at a time of personal stress, emotion and uncertainty.

Criminal convictions can make a dramatic difference to your life and at their worst can lead to time spent in gaol. If you are separated from your partner, allegations of family and domestic violence can restrict your children spending time with you and seriously affect your family law matter.
If you are faced with criminal charges it is best to get professional advice before speaking to the police or making a statement. Our solicitors can assist you with all criminal law matters including Apprehended Violence Orders, Motor Vehicle and Traffic Offences.

Employment Law - Unfair Dismissal & Sexual Harassment
Losing your job can be an unsettling and tough experience, especially if you feel like you’ve been unfairly treated, bullied or harassed in your workplace.
Often you are unable to speak out for fear of reprisals or being sacked. Quite often it can be a superior at work who is behaving like this towards you and resignation can seem like the only way to solve these problems.
We can represent you at Fair Work Commission hearings to help you negotiate fair and reasonable compensation and make sure that you receive the documentation and payments that you are entitled to.
There are strict time limits involved in an Unfair Dismissal claim, so if you feel that you have been sacked unfairly contact us as soon as possible to help you receive the entitlements owed to you.
Advance Care Directives
We don’t like talking about sickness or dying. It can be a confronting and difficult topic to discuss with our family and loved ones.
Taking that first step to arrange your affairs will save those around you from a great deal of extra stress and help them look after you when you need their care the most.
An Advance Care Directive guides your doctors and allows them to give you the level of medical treatment and dignity at a time when you may be unable to express it yourself.
Advance Care Directives can only be used if you are unable to communicate or do not have the capacity to tell your doctors your wishes. The NSW Supreme Court has said that these Directives must be followed and that they cannot be overridden by a Health Professional of a Person Responsible ensuring that your wishes are followed.
It might not be the easiest thing to talk about but our solicitors can help you take that first step so that your family can have peace of mind at such a difficult time.
