Help during a difficult time

Last year my brother was diagnosed with advanced Alzheimer’s disease.

It was awful. We needed to sell his house and his car and move him interstate — he lived in the ACT and we live in Sydney.

We were in a very awkward situation and we didn’t know what to do. My brother had given me his medical power of attorney, but he hadn’t given me control over his financial affairs – he had left that to the ACT Public Trustee.

Louise is really lovely. I haven’t had anything to do with lawyers before but there wouldn’t be many like her. She was so bright and chirpy. She put us at ease, she explained everything.

Andreyev Lawyers wrote the letters for us to the tribunal and then did an update letter for us. The whole thing took about six months and she kept in contact with me to let me know what was happening.

When we had our hearing at the tribunal, there were lawyers and doctors and social workers — it was awful, but after two and a half hours we were finally given legal and medical power of attorney.

Andreyev Lawyers was absolutely fantastic — we couldn’t have done it without them.
