  • Estate Planning
  • Deceased Estates
  • Inheritance claims
Brendan has practised in the areas of Family Law, Wills & Estates and Estate Litigation for 35 years. He specialises in:
  • all areas of Family Law including property settlement disputes (both marital and de facto), spousal maintenance, children's disputes and child support;
  • preparation of Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Advance Care Directives and applications to SACAT (formerly the Guardianship Board of South Australia);
  • administration of deceased estates; and
  • claims against a deceased estate under the Inheritance (Family Provision) Act (SA) 1972.
Brendan’s experience in family law and wills and estates law is unique and enables him to provide clients with comprehensive legal advice across both areas of law.
 
As the number of relationship breakdowns continues to rise, clients are looking for ways to protect the “family wealth” from future property settlement claims. Likewise, clients with “blended” families require complex estate planning advice to ensure their spouse and their children (biological, step and adopted) are all adequately provided for.
 
Brendan is a member of the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia, the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and the Law Society of South Australia.
