Wills & Estates
Johnston Tobin Solicitors have the experience to help you with preparation of your Will. Having a Will prepared by experienced solicitors ensures that it is effective when the time comes and your Executors are not left with problems or disputes. We offer a competitive price in the preparation of Wills and other documents such as Powers of Attorney and Enduring Guardianships with discounted rates when you do them either with your spouse or partner or obtain Powers of Attorney or Enduring Guardianship at the same time that Wills are being prepared for you.
We prepare our Wills in such a way that they can last many years with back-up and alternative provisions to cover many of the circumstances that occur in life. Wills done in this way do not require constant updating and changing so you can be assured they will be effective when the time comes.
While having an up to date Will is important sometimes Estate planning can be more important and a basic Will just will not suffice. Johnston Tobin Solicitors have experience in advising you in relation to your Estate planning needs including the creation of testamentary trusts and trust arrangements designed to protect your beneficiaries and ensure ongoing support for them for many years after you pass away. Estate planning involves dealing with your Estate not only in a timely manner but in a manner to reduce taxation liabilities or even avoid your beneficiaries losing the support they are entitled to because of family law or other property disputes.
Particularly important with this type of Estate planning is the ability to look after family members or other persons affected by disabilities of either a psychological or physical nature. It is important to prepare Wills and other documents in such a way to ensure the ongoing welfare of your loved ones in these situations.
Johnston Tobin Solicitors are experienced in acting on behalf of Executors and administrators dealing with Estates including all applications to the Supreme Court of NSW to obtain grants of Probate or Letters of Administration. We provide advice to Executors and lead them through the process required to minimise disputes and problems during a time when you are often still going through the grieving process. Johnston Tobin Solicitors offer sound advice and direction from years of experience in conducting Estate matters which can even extend to disputes and claims against Estates.
