Get in touch with Rosemary
Rosemary Caruso is experienced with all aspects of Wills and Estates. And with an academic background combining Law with Engineering, Rosemary’s analytical mind opens her to solutions outside the norm.
Rosemary provides invaluable advice on estate planning – including simple and complex wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Enduring Guardians.
She likes to ensure that her clients leave her office having understood the advice she has given to them, and their choices.
All documents are explained, so Rosemary’s clients feel comfortable with their decisions and what they are signing.
Rosemary’s friendliness and approachability enables her to support and assist executors in their role to administer estates and fulfill the deceased’s wishes.
Rosemary does her utmost to provide assistance in a timely fashion so that the executors, who are often close family members, can continue to grieve or begin the grieving process.
Rosemary has also been involved in a number of complex matters, applications for grants of probate, letters of administration where there was no will, infant beneficiaries where there was no executor and residuary beneficiaries named on a home made will.
She has also been involved in a landmark South Australian case where a DVD recording was accepted as a legal document for the purposes of the Wills Act. Read about that here.
Having practiced for many years as a Family Lawyer, Rosemary knows how to take a step back from an emotional situation, and apply calm assessment and rational solutions to estate disputes.
Rosemary places a special emphasis on reaching negotiated resolutions in estate disputes to save her clients from the pain and expense of a long fight in a courtroom.
