One of the most valuable outcomes of a thoughtful estate plan is peace of mind.
Aitken Lawyers has the experience to handle a wide range of issues that can arise when preparing an estate plan. Our vast and long term involvement in this area (including presenting seminars to the profession), allows Aitken Lawyers to weigh up the different options available to create the most appropriate outcome for our clients and their particular circumstances, from both a legal and family relationship perspective.
From wills, testamentary trusts, powers of attorney and forms of enduring guardianship, through to living wills, probate, estate disputes, potential inheritance and foundations and private funds, Aitken Lawyers has helped generations of clients with both simple and complex estate planning.
