about Clare

Clare helps people through difficult and stressful times. As a Wills and Estates lawyer she understands the sensitivity and care needed when dealing with clients’ personal lives and the importance of establishing trust.

“Clients often have issues that are hard to discuss, so taking time to get to know them, their situation and their needs is critical. This is essential to getting the right outcome as well as building trust.”

Wills are individual and should be structured differently for each client’s personal circumstances and needs. Every deceased estate has its own challenges. Clare guides and advises her clients through the whole process, making sure everything is taken care of to give them peace of mind.

Originally from England, many of Clare’s clients benefit from her dual qualifications in Australia and the United Kingdom and her understanding of succession issues, such as tax, in both countries.

Her clients include individuals and families, people with overseas interests, blended families and business owners. She takes the time to get to know them, explain the many details and complexities in a simple manner, providing a bespoke service.
