What is the difference between an Estate Lawyer and a Probate Lawyer?

An Estate Lawyer provides advice regarding an estate while a person is still alive. This could be advice regarding the creation of a family trust, drafting of a Will, or other means of asset protection or estate planning.

A Probate Lawyer provides advice to the Executor (or Administrator) of an estate after a person has passed away (a Deceased Estate). This could include making an application to the Supreme Court of WA for a Grant of Probate (or Letters of Administration), or the subsequent administration and distribution of the Deceased Estate.

It is not unusual, if not preferrable, for the Estate Lawyer who drafted a Will to also act as the Probate Lawyer assisting the appointed Executor with the administration of the Deceased Estate as they would already have familiarity of the estate and possibly also the deceased’s family.

Should I hire a Wills and Estate Lawyer to write my Will when I can do a Will myself from the post office?

Drafting a Will without legal advice, regardless of where you obtained the Will Kit from, has the following risks:

  • The Will may be invalid for not meeting formal requirements. A Will must be drafted and executed in very specific ways, otherwise it may not be recognised when making an application for Grant of Probate;
  • The Will being revoked without the will-maker knowing. Unintentionally revoking a Will is something that can be avoided or managed through proper drafting;
  • The Will being contested (a Family Provision Claim). A disgruntled family member may seek to challenge a Will if they think they are being left out of a Will or do not receive the same share as the other Beneficiaries. Again, proper drafting can help manage this risk;
  • Certain assets not forming part of the Deceased Estate and thereby not passing as intended under the Will. Jointly held assets (and sometimes superannuation) do not necessarily form part of an estate when a person passes away.

There is no substitute for professional advice to address and manage the above risks.

If my Executor manages my estate after my passing, who manages my affairs when I am still alive but am unable to do so myself?

An Enduring Power of Guardianship and Enduring Power of Attorney allow a person to nominate who will manage your affairs, including your estate, while you are still alive but  have lost  the capacity to manage those affairs yourself. Without such documents, a person who loses capacity will have no say over who is appointed to manage their finances or make lifestyle decisions on their behalf. There will also be a time delay as an appropriate person makes an application to the State Administrative Tribunal.

"Always fast and thorough service. Thank you"

Sitka Pil

"My circumstances at the time I made contact with HHG were dire following my argument being rejected by two no win no fee firms. Following my initial meeting with HHG's employment law team I was left feeling extremely positive by the response and concern shown by HHG in regards to their support of my argument along with their preparedness to pursue an outcome on my behalf.

I accept the fact that nobody really wins in these cases (mental health/ workplace) however the end result was what would be considered most favourable and far in excess of what would have been achieved had I not sought the advice from HHG.

I have no hesitation in recommending HHG to anyone caught up in the messy circumstances I found myself in at the time.

Great advice and five-star commitment to their client!!"

Nathan Lynch

"Thank you for such great assistance with the transaction of Flying Domestics on behalf of Lorna Good. It has been such a pleasure to work with the HHG Legal Group and I look forward to working with you in the future."

Jim Goodwin

"Simon Creek and his team were at all times empathic, professional and confident.  My matter needed to be addressed within a pressing time frame, and their availability at short notice and contact after hours was much appreciated.  It caused me considerable stress, but having such a thoroughly reliable and competent team to call on helped me to feel in control. Although I hope not to need their services again in future, I would be confident in doing so!"

Dr Lana Bell

"A good outcome is what we can expect.  A great outcome is a sign of a company which does the very best for their clients. A very big thank you to Daniel Morris for showing empathy towards my small and much needed legal action.

To HHG Legal Group, thank you for a great outcome.  I would recommend your company to anyone seeking legal services."

Jan Atkinson

"Your support this morning was amazingly kind, not to mention your totally reassuring competence, knowledge and wisdom that you used on my behalf.  It was extremely reassuring to have your knowledgeable support, and I particularly appreciated your real and obvious kindness to me. It means so much at a very difficult time. I'm so grateful to you."

Lynette Livesey

"A big thank you to HHG for their professional service, continued support, and wide range of legal knowledge. Our clients have given us nothing but kind words regarding HHG Legal Group and so we have no hesitation in referring and recommending Simon Creek and HHG Legal Group for their outstanding services and legal expertise."

"Lisa, thank you so much for representing me in court, honestly, I would not have had the outcome I got without you. Once again, Thank you so much."


"Matthew Lilly was excellent in processing our project. He achieved the excellent result that we required on our project.

We would give Matthew a 5 star rating.

We will definitely commission Matthew for any further projects if we have the need."


"I have had the pleasure of being represented by Ms Lisa Riley. Lisa helped me in December 2020 when I was charged. Lisa was extremely supportive, reassuring, and preserved with her investigation of the laws and was able to save me from a terrible outcome. Another incident occurred in August 2021 in which I sought Lisa’s help. Lisa preserved and was very patient with me. This only got resolved this year. When she advised me that she was leaving her old firm, I insisted that she remain my lawyer, as I had the utmost faith in her. Hence I moved over to HHG. Lisa took no shortcuts in my defence and continued to preserve for the toxicology report that ultimately saved me. She kept me up-to-date with the progress and provided support. Having someone as understanding as Lisa was a huge gift, to me and my family. You have gained a huge asset in Lisa joining your firm.

Thank you, Lisa, forever grateful for your work, and if ever needed, I will be sure to refer to you"


"We can highly recommend HHG Legal Group and particularly Mr Blair Campbell (Special Counsel / Dispute Resolution)

Blair worked with us as we navigated a very difficult third party dispute.

Blair’s expertise, wisdom, and the way he guided us in a very measured and calm manner gave us great encouragement and comfort. Blair helped us to focus on what we needed to and to trust the process.

Blair was always responsive to us, he always got back to us very promptly to answer our questions and to help us to step through some really hard days.

We are very grateful for Blair’s expertise and wisdom along with his empathy and care, this truly made the difference for us."
