YOU never really know what’s around the corner.

Everyone, especially those growing older, needs to consider their current circumstances and how this might impact on their living arrangements in the foreseeable future.

As we age, it is natural to perhaps need some assistance and it is important that everyone put in place proper arrangements for who can help them make decisions about their money, their medical treatment and their living arrangements if the worst happened and they were unable to make these decisions themselves.

Dianne Williams Pty has been providing professional and personalised legal services to their clients throughout the Echuca-Moama region and beyond, for more than 20 years.

Dianne personally consults with all clients to work through their needs and requirements to find the best documented solution tailored to their individual situation.

She helps them to understand things such as the different powers of attorney available and how these documents can provide you with peace of mind and support.

A power of attorney is a legal document through which one person grants to another the authority to make legal and financial decisions on their behalf.

This can be used in several ways – from having someone take care of your affairs while travelling to times of extended illness.

An enduring power of attorney takes this a step further, whereby the person nominated to manage the affairs may continue to manage the affairs once the person giving the power is found to have diminished mental capacity due to injury or illness.

It is important to make sure these documents are prepared as early as possible so they are already in place when your family might need them to be able to assist you.

As well as powers of attorney, Dianne also helps her clients to make provision for their loved ones in their will, tailoring the document to each client’s individual needs and circumstances.

At Dianne Williams Pty they can also assist with the sale of the family home, purchase or sale of retirement village accommodation or any other legal requirements in relation to property.

They also handle deceased estates — its caring, understanding and professional staff can help you with any questions and make the process as easy, comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Dianne Williams Pty is a boutique law firm which practices in all types of property transactions including residential and business sales and purchases, water transfers, business sale and purchase, as well as powers of attorney, wills and deceased estates.
