We Are Here To Serve You

You might be surprised to learn that a document does not have to be described as a will to impact how a person’s assets are divided.

For this reason, we advise everyone – whether you’re seeking to ensure your wishes are followed when you pass away, or, making sure you get a fair share of your loved one’s estate – to seek legal advice.

It is not hard or expensive to leave behind a will, however, saving yourself some money on organising your affairs could end up costing those left behind thousands.

Here at Strategic Lawyers we offer a wide-range of services for people looking to ensure their wishes are granted after they pass-away.

Our lawyers are also well-versed in making sure family members are looked after in a way that provides for their way-of-life and is fundamentally fair and equitable.

Wills and Estate Law FAQs

A testamentary trust is set up within a will, activated upon death, to manage assets for beneficiaries, especially minors or those with special needs.

Estate administration in Queensland involves gathering assets, paying debts and distributing assets as per the will or intestacy rules.

An executor manages the estate, pays debts and distributes assets to beneficiaries as per the deceased’s will.

Yes, if you believe you’ve been unfairly treated, the will is invalid, or the deceased lacked capacity, you can contest a will in Queensland.

Marriage often revokes a previous will unless made in contemplation of marriage. Divorce can invalidate provisions favouring the ex-spouse.

Wills are foundational in estate planning, ensuring assets are distributed as desired, appointing guardians for minors and outlining specific post-death wishes.

Estate planning is comprehensive, considering asset protection, tax, wealth management and more. A will is just one component.

A clear, valid will, a trustworthy executor and an understanding of intestacy rules can streamline the estate administration process.

Power of Attorney lets you appoint someone to make decisions, ensuring your assets and wealth are managed and protected, especially if incapacitated.

Strategic estate planning in Queensland can use trusts, tax-effective structures and clear directives to minimise tax and protect assets from family disputes.

I found the initial consult just as they had described.
From the very comforting, warm welcome I received in reception, right up until the exchange of money at the end of the session, my enthusiasm only grew stronger with each exchange.
Justin is a very caring and transparent human-being, who took the time to listen to the intricacies of my case and give sound advice on the way through this.
Win or lose, I am confident that the team supporting me will fight for the best possible outcome.

Ryan, 2023

Had my first interaction with Justin Ireland in regards to my legal matter. There was no showboating about their previous cases or how many they have won which was impressive, in stead he announced his position and who was working with him and proceeded to lay down how my matter would be handled. People are often turned off by costs but when put into prospective the time and people involved, their prices are quite competitive. I have confidence I have made the the right decision by choosing Strategic Lawyers

Ryan, 2023
