Guardianship, Administration and Elder Law


While for most people longer life expectancy is great news, however for some people it may mean living longer without capacity.

At KCL Law, a large part of our estate planning offering is to ensure that our clients are protected throughout their life and are able to enjoy their golden years with peace of mind.

We provide our clients with preventative advice to minimise the issues, stress and potential litigation that may occur when a person loses capacity or simply approaching retirement.

We are experienced at knowing who the right persons or entities are to appoint to manage a person affairs, and recognise when they too need guidance and assistance.

Our Estate Group deals with all guardianship, elder law and administration issues and can provide advice in relation to:

  • powers of attorney;
  • VCAT Guardianship hearings;
  • VCAT Administration hearings;
  • capacity disputes;
  • aged care advice; and
  • elder law advice.

Our team
