Debbie Sage - Wills and Estates Senior Associate
Debbie Sage is a Partner and Accredited Aged Care Professional in the Wills and Estates Department. Her primary focus is in matters related to estate administration. As an Accredited Aged Care Professional, Debbie is also able to provide insight and professional advice to clients regarding all areas of aged care.

Debbie is a Partner at Attwood Marshall Lawyers, having joined our Wills and Estates department as a Senior Paralegal in June 2005. She has extensive experience and skills to assist in the preparation and drafting of Wills, Enduring Power of Attorneys, Enduring Guardians and Advance Health Directives. Debbie has predominantly worked in the administration of deceased estates. She practices exclusively in Wills & Estates and Elder Law in both Queensland and New South Wales.

Debbie holds a Bachelor of Laws from Southern Cross University and was initially admitted as a Legal Practitioner in the Supreme Court of Queensland. She has also been admitted to the High Court of Australia and is a member of the Queensland Law Society. She is currently studying her Masters of Applied Law, majoring in Wills & Estates.

Debbie is approachable, friendly and has great empathy towards our clients. She possesses a deep-seated enthusiasm for helping people and collaborating with like-minded professionals who share a common goal of making a positive impact on people’s lives.

With nearly 20 years working in the field of Wills and Estates, Debbie has built up expert knowledge and can provide executors and beneficiaries with practical and personal advice.

Her compassionate approach helps clients carry out all parts of the administration process with ease. Some of those things include and are not limited to: advising executors and trustees of their duties and rights, applying to the Supreme Court for a grant of representation, assisting the estate where there is no Will, calling in estate assets such as bank accounts, insurance policies and shares, selling or transferring property, and the distribution of estates including where an appropriation or an adjustment may be required.

Debbie became a lawyer because she wanted to help people through what can be one of the most challenging moments in their lives. She understands how the transition to aged care services or the death of a loved one can be overwhelming, and is keen to make sure her clients understand their rights and what options are available to them so that they can make an informed decision.

As head of our Aged Care department, Debbie is passionate about fighting for change and is taking a stand to criminalise elder abuse. She advocates for the safety and wellbeing of the elderly community and has been campaigning to introduce new laws that specifically criminalise elder abuse.

Debbie is also an Accredited Aged Care Professional, having completed the Aged Care Steps Accreditation, and represents many clients who live in aged care facilities or who are preparing for their transition into aged care. She is able to provide her estate planning expertise and retirement planning advice to ensure her clients make informed decisions about their aged care options, including at home care packages, retirement village or residential care facilities.
