Murphy have been taking instructions for Wills, probate and
powers of attorney for over 30 years.
A Will is one of the most important legal documents for individuals,
and must accommodate the specific needs and intentions of the
testator. Not only do Wills need to be properly drafted and
properly signed and witnessed, they need to be strategic. We
can provide you with the necessary advice to ensure that all
of your estate planning concerns are dealt with in your Will.
We have experience in disputes over Wills and, in particular,
have been involved in Family Provisions Act matters and have
assisted executors who are defending claims made upon a deceased
estate by relatives or spouses.
A properly drafted power of attorney ensures reliability and
certainty so far as financial and personal decision making is
concerned. We assist business clients who require a local ‘attorney’
to act on their behalf when they are not able to, and also service
individuals who want to ensure that if something were to happen
to them a trusted relative will make decisions according to
We are also able to help clients with matters relating to superannuation
and provide referrals to leading superannuation service providers
