What Our Clients Say
Thankful for the good advice given. We found that nothing was too much trouble for Michael to do. We found him to be both professional and helpful, a great asset to Kells.
Very happy with Michael’s services and knowledge. Easy to do business with and explains things in layman’s terms. Prompt responses to my queries and prompt service. Thank you.
I can never thank you enough for what you did for me regarding my mother’s estate. You have always been forthright and confident in your decision making. Absolutely amazing. I finally feel justice has been achieved. Thank you so much.
Every interaction with Kells’ team made me feel like I was their only client. In particular I would like to thank Michael for his thoughtful, caring and professional guidance through a family estate settlement.
Michael was very helpful with everything we needed. Would recommend him to all our friends and family.
Michael is an associate in our estate planning, commercial and property practices and manages our Thirroul office. Michael grew up in the Illawarra region and is known for his positive, diligent and rational character.
What he does
Michael has extensive experience in estate planning and provides advice on contested estates (including family provision claims), trusts, complex deceased estate administrations and superannuation. He also advises clients on commercial contracts, commercial and retail leases and limited recourse borrowing arrangements.
“I enjoy helping individuals and families from all walks of life to map out and achieve their unique estate planning goals. Planning for what the future holds can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be. A simple chat with an estate planning lawyer can often address many concerns people have about a potential loss of capacity or passing, and there is definitely no such thing as a silly question!”
