POWERS OF ATTORNEY
Appointing a Power of Attorney is an important aspect of life-planning. We can assist with all types of powers of attorney such as Financial & Medical Enduring POA and General POA. We can also assist with asset protection and discretionary trusts.
Probate is a critical legal step needed before a persons estate can be administered or distributed to the beneficiaries. We can assist you with all the necessary documentation and lodging with the Probate Office at the Supreme Court of Victoria including all necessary steps involved within the probate process.
If you're thinking about investing in property, but don't have enough funds to make an outright purchase, you may be interested to know that it's possible to borrow money through a SMSF and receive many of the same benefits as traditional property investment. We can assist you with purchasing property under your Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF), attend to all the legals and walk you through the process right up to settlement.
A will should reflect your current domestic and financial situations. As circumstances in life change, so should your will. Revise your will at least every five years or when a significant event such as a new property purchase, marriage, the birth of a child, or the death of a family member takes place.

Teresa has made the sale of our house a hassle free and enjoyable experience. Her communication prompt, professional and regular, which made us feel like we were in the loop with each process of the sale.
I would not hesitate to use or recommend Teresa’s services to anyone.
Best in our area hands down.
Thanks once again Teresa, we look forward to using your services again with our next house!
Teresa has provided my family with expert legal advice on two different occasions. The first was with purchasing a new property and the second was for a Will creation for my wife and I.
Teresa is highly knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions on the spot. With Teresa's personalised service we felt comfortable knowing that we were in good hands. This eased the stress of purchasing a new property.
Teresa comes highly recommended and she will be the first person that we will be speaking to for any future legal services that we may require.
It has been a complete pleasure having Teresa look after our legal services on two occasions. On both occasions there were no complications thanks to Teresa's professionalism, promptness, efficiency & accuracy. I highly recommend Teresa's Legal Services & encourage anyone to engage her for their legal requirements!
