How we help

No-one likes to think about what would happen if you died or had an accident or major illness that meant you were unable to look after yourself. 

But we have yet to meet anyone that is immortal and bad things do happen, whether you are ready or not.   Who would look after you? Who would look after your family? Who do you want to inherit your belongings and assets?

It’s our job to help you plan for all eventualities by preparing a legally valid will that considers all scenarios, by setting up powers of attorney so people you trust can act for you and by carefully planning your inheritance (or estate).   

Our goal is to help you protect your future self and the best interests of your loved ones, to ensure your wishes are carried out and that your estate is passed on exactly as you planned. 

We are also here to guide you through the legal process that occurs when someone close to you dies (known as probate). Our experienced team are compassionate and go the extra mile to help you and your family though this difficult time.  

Collectively, our family law team at Tonkin Legal have helped thousands of people who live or work or have family in the North Eastern suburbs of Melbourne to ensure they are well-prepared for the future, whatever it brings. 

Our firm values openness, collaboration and integrity. We make sure you understand what your options are, what you need to do, what will happen next and what our services will cost at every step of the journey. 

That’s why our clients choose us for this important work.
