We’re an Albany based law firm specialising in Wills and Estate Planning. Can you go to sleep tonight knowing that if something were to happen to you, your wishes will be respected? If not, it’s time to talk.
We’ve been practising law for more than 20 years in Sydney and Albany, so trust us when we say, “we’ve seen it all”.
Families fighting over money after a loved one has passed, legal bills into the millions, broken families, individuals forced out of their homes, and long-lasting emotional trauma. All because a Will wasn’t put in place from the beginning, a Will was out of date, or wasn’t put together properly.
This is why we established Great Southern Wills. To educate and empower our local community to plan for their future from the beginning so there won’t be any fighting, challenges, or unnecessary stress.
This is an area of law close to our hearts and by specialising in this field only, we’re able to offer high-quality expert advice and provide the best possible solutions for you and your family. In fact, we haven’t had one of our Wills challenged to date!
We work with many individuals and families in the Great Southern Region offering tailored advice to suit your unique situation. Our core clients include young families that want to appoint a Guardian for their children; individuals in their 20s or 30s that have entered the workforce and are receiving superannuation (which means you’re most likely entitled to life insurance), families with adult children; multi-generational farming families; blended families; second-time marriages; and retired individuals and couples.

You may have been putting off meeting with a lawyer because you think it’s going to be too expensive, too complex, or something you can just add to the to-do list for ‘later’ when you’re older or when you’ve got time to sort it out. We get that!
For this reason, we offer affordable fixed prices and a no-obligation FREE consultation where Bernadette can come out to you, or you can meet at our Albany office.
We’re all part of the same community, after all. It’s important we look out for each other.
We’re a small, family-run law firm that shows real empathy, compassion, and care to our clients. We spend a lot of time getting to know you, and guarantee you’ll be working with our senior lawyer, Bernadette, the whole time (not a junior or law grad). We also want you to feel relaxed, so there’ll be no fancy suits and sports cars, no billable hours and no confusing documents. We’re as down-to-earth as it gets, explaining everything to you in plain English so you have all the knowledge you need to make the best decision for you and your family. Below is our 6-step process and it all starts with reaching out for a conversation.
Find out why so many clients prefer us over others!
We can’t stress how important it is to have your wishes carefully set out in writing.
Too many times have we met with grieving families that are lost, confused and overwhelmed because there is no Will or there is a Will, but it is 5, 10, 15 years out of date.
There are many issues to consider:
Let us help you create a properly advised Will to ensure you and your family are protected.
Your first consultation meeting with Bernadette is FREE, and there’s no pressure or obligation to proceed.
In your FREE meeting, we’ll get to know you and discuss all your options. We can have this discussion at our office, over Zoom or in your living room – you choose.
