Most Australians do not have a will prepared, but everyone needs a will!

Wills are not just for the wealthy. If you own real estate, cars, jewellery or other assets of value, or have savings in your bank account, you should ensure you have a  will.

You should also review and update your will when your circumstances change (such as when you get married or divorced).



Wollongong City Lawyers can assist clients with preparing applications of probate and administration of estates.

We can provide advice and guidance to executors who are managing the provision of an estate after a person has deceased.

We provide fixed fee quotes for clients wanting assistance to lodge an application for probate with the Supreme Court of New South Wales.

Power of attorney


We charge a fixed fee for preparing and providing advice in relation to a power of attorney document.

A Power of attorney is a document that allows a nominated person to make financial decisions on your behalf. This appointment may operate for a defined period of time or can apply after you lose the capacity to make these decisions for yourself (such as in the case of an accident or if you develop dementia).

Enduring guardian


We can provide advice on and prepare documents for you to appoint an enduring guardian.

An enduring guardian is someone who can make non-financial decisions on your behalf when you are no longer able to do so yourself, including decisions about healthcare and where you will live.

We charge a competitive fixed fee to prepare documents appointing an enduring guardian.
