A good will is a fundamental necessity.  The stakes are high. A homemade will is often a disaster.  Complicated family circumstances such as being in a second marriage with children from a prior marriage or relationship require careful consideration of a range of options.

For some clients, the will is just the starting point of succession planning, and of itself insufficient.  Superannuation death benefits, self-managed superannuation funds, private companies and trusts all require specific attention, as do taxation consequences of dealing with them.  All of these issues need to be dealt with in a cohesive manner.
