Deceased Estates  

As Probate Lawyers, our role is to make sure that you do not have to stress over the legal side of a deceased estate. We assist customers by making sure all estates are administered professionally, carefully and swiftly.

We can be trusted to provide you with a caring approach while processing all matters concerning the administration of estates in an expeditious and cost effective manner. If probate is needed, we can obtain a Grant of Probate. If there is no Will, Letters of Administration can be obtained. If a Will is challenged, then we can conduct any court litigation which might ensue, either protecting the executors and beneficiaries or representing the person who is seeking a share of the estate.

Our Probate & Estate Team

When a family member dies, there is a need for legal advice and assistance on the administration of that person’s estate. Our team of Probate and Estates Lawyers comprises:

How long does probate take?

One of the first questions we are asked when dealing with an estate is ‘How long does probate take?’. There is no set answer to this question, however, we have prepared an article that sets out factors that influence how long it will take to obtain a Grant of Probate and to administer an estate in Victoria.


Based in Glen Waverley in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, our offices are easily accessed by both train and bus. There is free street parking opposite our office. Click here for a map.
