Talk to McVeagh Fleming about how we can help ensure your family’s needs are taken care of after you have gone.


Creating a new Will to ensure that your loved ones receive the appropriate portions of your estate in the event of your death is highly recommended because it can avoid family disputes, delays and expenses to your family once you are gone.

It is also essential to update your Will upon marriage or separation or any other significant change in your circumstances. You may also wish to appoint a testamentary guardian to look after your children. We have the experience and expertise to create a Will which reflects your needs and will provide for your family in the future per your wishes.

Carefully drafted Enduring Powers of Attorney can remove the need to apply for Protection of Personal Property Rights orders later.
