Contesting A Will

You may wish to contest a will because you’ve been left out of the will, the will is missing or unclear, or if you suspect the will-maker was coerced or lacked capacity to make a will.

Estate Planning

Our estate planning service will provide you with peace of mind after finalising your will and other necessary documents. We also ensure that following your death, those who will administer and benefit from your will enjoy peace of existence.

Estate Administration

Executors of an estate have an obligation to engage in the due administration of the estate. Enormous obligations are cast upon an executor to gather in the estate, pay all testamentary debts and expenses and to distribute the estate in a correct and legal way.

Elder Law

Financial elder abuse is becoming more common. It is the improper or illegal use of an older person’s funds, property or resources. We believe it’s important to protect seniors against exploitation and abuse.

We offer a free, 10-minute phone consultation
