We’re here to help people at every stage of life

When people reach retirement and are planning for their future health care needs and living arrangements, there can be a lot to consider. We can make the process easier and ensure our clients make decisions that reflect their best interests.

At Attwood Marshall Lawyers, our team believe in building strong relationships with financial planners, medical professionals, and aged care professionals to be able to offer a holistic approach when helping clients find solutions to meet their retirement, estate planning, and aged care needs. 

When someone reaches a stage in their life when they may need to move into an aged care facility, there is a lot to factor in, including ensuring their estate plan is in order and any documents they need, such as an Enduring Power of Attorney, Advance Health Directive, or a Will, are up to date and reflect that person’s current state of affairs. 

As one of the few law firms with an in-house accredited aged care professional, we have the knowledge and expertise to guide our clients throughout the process and support them in their retirement plans.

If clients require appointments outside of regular business hours, our team are available Thursday nights and Saturday mornings at our Robina Town Centre office.
