Jack Conway is an associate in our Wills & Estates team. Jack has experience assisting clients with:

  • obtaining grants of probate and letters of administration.
  • Advising administrators and executors who are administering deceased estates.

Jack understands that dealing with death is something that most people are keen to avoid, but in his experience a conversation about death is really a conversation about the most important things in life: looking after your family, and leaving a positive legacy.

Whether planning a person’s affairs or acting in a dispute, Jack is focused on giving clear, simple advice and achieving a fair and practical outcome for his clients.
