Advice  •  Updates  •  Community

I made contact with Lee Usher-Clarke to revise and update my will. The previous will had been prepared for me some years ago by SHG. Lee was very prompt in reading the previous will and making contact to discuss my intentions. She offered excellent advice on the redraft and on possible alternative executors. Lee also recommended that I consider enduring power of attorney and enduring guardianship deeds. I am very grateful for the quality and relevance of her advice and her explanations of technical aspects that I lacked knowledge of. I am very familiar with statutory and common law and have drafted legislation for the Commonwealth parliament – I have complete confidence that Lee has mastery of her field of the law and have no hesitation in recommending her services

My husband & I have recently seen Stacey Bell for new Wills and Powers of Attorney, and she could not have been more helpful.

Everything we needed to know and consider was clearly outlined to us in language we could understand, with most appropriate analogies used on occasions.

She is also kind and compassionate and has a delightful sense of humour, which makes dealing with such weighty matters so much easier.

We would be very happy to recommend Stacey to anyone needing her services, and indeed, have already passed her name onto several other friends, relatives and organisations.

Amber Wang responded to my online contact within 24 hours. From her first contact, she was kind, respectful and empathetic. Over the months Amber and her team stepped me through the process and supported me with professional and accurate advice and guidance.  Thank you, Amber, for supporting and guiding me and for ensuring a successful outcome.
