Jane is a Trust and Estate Paralegal and is based at our Morphett Vale office where she guides clients through the invariably exacting legal steps that are required following the death of a loved one. She has many years of knowledge and expertise and has experienced at first hand the difficulties and additional costs that can occur when a person dies with a “homemade” Will or no Will at all.
For this reason alone, Jane encourages everyone to have their Will professionally drafted so that it is clear and firm who will look after their affairs and who will inherit their estate when they die.
Beyond that, Jane’s attention to detail and organised approach ensure that the process is as streamlined and as painless as possible during what are inevitably testing times.
Ensuring that people’s affairs can be managed fairly and efficiently if their ability to make decisions should become impaired during their lifetime is another major consideration and this is achieved through the preparation of Enduring Powers of Attorney and Advance Care Directives to ensure her clients have their affairs in order should they need someone else to be able to make legal or lifestyle decisions for them. This is an area in which Jane has considerable experience and is able to provide sound advice and guidance.
Jane came to South Australia from the UK in 2009 where she enjoys in the sunshine and beautiful scenery. As she says: “I enjoy living close to Adelaide because the city, coast and country side are all so easily accessible.” Jane is also a highly accomplished photographer and loves singing.
