About Us

Whether you are ready to work with a solicitor to make a will today, just in the beginning stages of exploring your options, or in need of help administering a deceased estate we are happy that you have landed here to look for information.

Susan McDonald is the proprietor of Wills At Your Home. She has been working in the field of Wills and Estates for fourteen years. Susan has experience as a solicitor creating Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney, Advance Care Directives, and administering Deceased Estates. Over the past 14 years, she has drafted hundreds of Wills and supported numerous executors and administrators with the estates of their loved ones. If you are the executor of a deceased estate, Susan can help explain and discuss your options with you in terms that you will understand, as well as help you deal with any issues that may arise.

In addition to her experience as a solicitor, Susan is a Registered Nurse, specialising in aged care and palliative care. She has 22 years of experience working as a Registered Nurse, and 14+ years working as both a nurse and a solicitor. This experience as a nurse gives Susan a specialised skill set to support and better serve her clients. Most recently, she has been able to devote more of her time to Wills At Your Home, while she continues to practice as a nurse less frequently.

Susan has the unique ability to provide the best possible legal advice to her clients because of her wide-ranging knowledge. She is able to clearly communicate with her clients and their families to reassure and bring a sense of calm and trust to what can be a difficult time in some people’s lives. Many solicitors have very little medical knowledge, as it is not required, which simply means that they can be limited in their ability to identify and relate to their clients. Susan is a practical, down-to-earth, approachable, and intelligent person. Her sense of humor and professionalism makes her easy to work with.

Wills At Your Home offers the added perk of coming to you, in your home, at the hospital, hospice or care facility, where you can be most comfortable. Susan’s experience as a nurse means that she has prior knowledge of many of the medical conditions that may come up during your appointment. Her combination of medical and legal knowledge guarantees that you are in the hands of a detailed, and comprehensive professional.

When she’s not visiting clients or working in her office, Susan is a lover of rescue animals and enjoys walking, reading, and meeting new people.
