Preparing a Will with GKS Law
Allow us to make this process stress free.
Preparing a Will is one of those tasks that we often put off but having a will is the only way to have peace of mind about how your estate will be distributed. Your wishes and your estate are not the same as anyone else’s.
At GKS Law, our team of specialist wills and estate lawyer help clients just like you with:
- Constructing an effective will;
- Estate planning;
- Offering advice on the legal and practical implications of your wishes.
To ensure that your will reflects your wishes, Jodie will meet with you taking the time necessary to gain a thorough understanding of all the relevant details. After gaining the necessary understanding of your assets, your family, the needs and abilities of your intended beneficiaries, taxation issues and the way that you want your property left, she can create an estate plan that incorporates all the necessary pieces, which may include:
- Testamentary Trusts
- Powers of Attorney (personal/health care and financial care)
- Advance Health Directives
Power of Attorney

An experienced estates lawyer is essential to ensure timely and efficient administration of any estate, whether or not the deceased left a will.
