We take our role in the community very seriously, working hard to ensure that West Australians have the right legal advice and the right expertise to help them get ahead.
This year as we head closer to International Day of People with Disability in early December (raising awareness and celebrating the achievements and contributions of people with disability), we’d like to help a West Australian family living with disability.
What may surprise many is that over 4 million Australians have some form of disability – 1 in 5 Australians. Disability comes in many forms from vision impairment, deafness, mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression, intellectual disability, acquired brain injury, autism spectrum disorder, a physical disability, and many others.
We would like to offer one WA family with an immediate family member with disability a comprehensive estate plan for the one or two adults within the family itself. All taken care of – on us, at no cost, with the offer taken up and work all wrapped up by March 2020.
The offer is pretty simple. Send us the questions that keep you awake at night when it comes to estate planning and disability, from which we will randomly select a winning family from the pool of questions received. Please send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 October 2019, and the winning family will be chosen on Friday 8 November 2019 and notified soon after.
We’ll update this post when this has occurred and this offer has been taken up, of course keeping all personal details completely confidential. This offer is open both to our existing clients or someone not yet known to us.
We’ll work with the chosen family over the next six months to get their plan in place, giving them the peace of mind they have the right strategies and protective mechanisms in place, which at a minimum shall include Wills but likely also enduring powers of attorney and powers of guardianship, amongst other succession documents.
Although we only have the capacity to offer this to one WA-based family, our hope however is that other estate planning law firms see this post and follow suit, helping other families in similar need. Feel free to share this to help spread the word.
