About

Feeling overwhelmed after the death of a loved one?

Losing a loved one is never easy. You’re dealing with grief and, on top of it all, a stack of paperwork and tasks have landed on your shoulders. You want to make sure that the estate is wound up quickly and properly, but you might not know where to start.

We make it easy for you by offering practical guidance at every step of the way. From applying for a Grant to making final distributions, we can help with as much or as little of the administration as you like.

With our help, you can finalise the estate efficiently and with little stress. 

Perth Probate Centre is a service of lawyers Birman & Ride. Our mission is to serve the community by making quality legal services accessible. We use innovative pricing models and service delivery to overcome traditional barriers to accessing legal services.
