Wills and Estate law can be a complex area to navigate, fraught with emotion.

Wills & Contested Estates Law

Our lawyers can help you with preparing your Will and your Estate planning.
When preparing a will, it is also important to consider whether a Power of Attorney and an Enduring Guardian should be appointed to properly protect your interest.

In the unfortunate event a loved one passes away, our lawyers can assist you with obtaining a Grant of Probate and finalising an Estate.
Unfortunately when a loved one passes away, you can be left feeling that you have been unfairly provided for in a Will, or not provided for at all. Under the law a person can challenge a will if the person did not have capacity when they made the Will, they were under the influence of others when they made the Will, or you believe that you’re entitled to more from the Estate than you have received.

Our lawyers Ross Selvaggio and Gillian Leahy can advise you on your rights to challenge a Will and provide you with guidance through the Court process as contesting a Will can be a complicated process.

Our Wills and Estates team can help you with:

  • Creating a Will
  • Grants of Probate
  • Creating Powers of Attorney and Enduring Guardians
  • De-facto and same-sex relationship rights
  • Contesting a Will
  • Advice regarding the Family Provisions Act

Selvaggio Lawyers were invaluable in helping me through a difficult time, after unfairly being restricted from seeing my children. I didn’t know where to start. I was dealing with lots of issues at that time and overwhelming emotions. They walked me through the process and made it easy. They answered my questions, no matter how trivial, and took time out of their day to attend to my enquiries.


We have been involved with Selvaggio Lawyers for approximately ten years, almost on a daily basis, due to the high volume of conveyancing work they carry out on our behalf. Selvaggio Lawyers' service has been second to none, with all work carried out in an highly efficient and prompt manner and our dealings with all staff have shown them to be professional and willing to 'go the extra mile' as our legal representatives.

Selvaggio Lawyers were kind and caring through a very difficult time. They provided honest and upfront advice, without the drama.


I have worked with Gillian Leahy of Selvaggio Lawyers since January 2014 on the purchase, sale and assignment of more than 15 properties. The transactions have included several complex Option Deeds and Deeds of Assignment. Gillian’s dedication, professionalism and rapid turnaround of documents have many times made the difference between winning and losing a deal. I recommend Selvaggio Lawyers highly for any property-related matters.
