Queensland Estate Lawyers

Qld Estate Lawyers (QEL) is a speciality firm within the Carter Capner Group which has been providing Queensland individuals and small businesses with sound legal services for more than 75 years.

When a loved one dies, it’s a tough time for everyone. There can be many elements involved in handling an estate, and this can be a confusing time for all parties. At QEL, our team aims to help you navigate the process as smoothly as possible. Our experienced estate lawyers have a thorough technical understanding of the ins and outs of estate law, including:

  • Probate of Will
  • Letters of administration
  • Executors of Estate
  • Executor’s commission.

We offer more than purely technical expertise, though. Our estate administration lawyers know how challenging the death of a loved one can be, and they will approach your situation with empathy and compassion.
