Wills & Estates

McDonald Johnson assists a diverse range of clients with Estate planning and related issues.

Our principal services in this area of the practice relate to drafting wills, including the establishment of testamentary trusts, preparing Powers of Attorney and Appointments of Enduring Guardians, assisting with the administration of Estates and applying for grants of Probate and Letters of Administration.

We listen to our clients, advise them and make recommendations.  When necessary, we encourage consultation with other professional advisors including Financial Planners and Accountants.

McDonald Johnson also has a large practice in Estate Litigation or Contested Estates. We represent Estates or Plaintiffs when a Will is being challenged or contested, and advise clients on issues concerning life insurance policies and superannuation entitlements.
