Atkinson Vinden Lawyers
At Atkinson Vinden, we handle hundreds of Wills and estate matters each year – from drafting simple and complex Wills to handling probate and resolving disputes over Wills. Let us help you with your estate planning needs.
A paramount concern in this area is ensuring that our wishes, and those of our loved ones, are honoured after we pass away. Effective estate planning involves doing all that is possible to ensure that your assets pass to your chosen beneficiaries efficiently and tax effectively.
Our services include helping your family obtain probate of your Will after your passing, and we can help with calling in the assets, dealing with those owed money from your estate. We even liaise with superannuation funds, insurers, we track down and realise your share portfolio, and make sure that your Will is distributed as per your wishes.
One important aspect of engaging a lawyer is properly scoping the costs which relate to the work. Given the sensitivity of matters surrounding wills and estates, we are open to negotiating fixed fee arrangements, assisting with cash flow planning and being upfront about costs at all times.
