Personal Injuries

If you have suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s wrongdoing, we can advise you and represent you in achieving the maximum compensation for your injuries. We will take detailed instructions from you. We will then prepare and lodge the Injuries Board application on your behalf. We will advise on whether or not the award of the Injuries Board should be accepted or rejected. We will draft Court proceedings. We will represent you in Court. We will obtain the highest award possible in your case, either through settlement, negotiation, mediation or Court award.


When a deceased leaves a Will, the process to have the assets distributed is called Probate. The representative appointed by the deceased in the Will is the Executor. When a Grant of Probate issues from the Probate Office, the deceased’s estate can be distributed according to the terms of his Will.


There is really no good reason not to make a will. Making a will allows you to dictate through clear instructions how you want your assets distributed after your death. You can appoint guardians to take care of your minor children and make provision for their future, possibly through the creation of a trust.
