Elder Law expertise

Elder law encompasses protecting your assets and yourself, looking to the future for yourself, your family and those you hold dear.  Stace Hammond’s team have extensive experience and expertise in aspects of Elder law, from estate planning to estate administration.  Peace of mind comes from planning for how you’d like your assets to be protected.

It’s never too soon to start looking to the future, and Stace Hammond can assist in advice on, and preparation of Wills, as stand-alone documents, or in conjunction with Trust matters.

We are able, at any stage of your life, to assist in advice and preparation of Enduring Powers of Attorney.  These allow you to appoint someone you trust to make important decisions for you regarding your personal care and welfare and/or your property, if you become unable to do so.

We have experience in the administering of estates and can assist families at all stages of an estate administration.
