About Us

We genuinely care that over half the adult community in Western Australia don’t have Wills and Enduring Powers. We want to fix that by putting in place great quality Estate Planning documents at an affordable price and to make the experience an easy and understandable one. We do some other great legal stuff too!

Team Members

 

Peter Jones- Director, Paralegal

Peter has had a long business career firstly running Indoor Sports centres and then almost 25 years as a Certified Financial Planner, much of it self-employed. Having sold that business, he and business partner Rohan embarked on a new venture buying Willcraft Estate Planning in 2017. He’d referred clients to them for 5 years and knew what a great service the business offered, so he bought the company.

Peter loves all kinds of sport so if you’ve got a few hours to spare just get him talking about the West Coast Eagles.

 

Rohan Howard- Director, Paralegal

Rohan worked in Financial Planning for 30 years (much of it as a self-employed Certified Financial Planner) before embarking on a change and buying Willcraft with his business partner Peter in 2017. He knows that clients need help and encouragement in getting their Wills done and the company has a great service to make that happen.

Rohan doesn’t know much at all about sport, but he does love walking his crazy dog at the beach and enjoys red wine, usually separately. We discourage him from doing either thing whilst he’s at work.

 

Jacqueline Brown - Legal Practice Director

Jacqueline has over 20 years of experience in legal practice. She focusses on providing exceptional family law, wills, estate planning and probate advice. Her thoughtful approach and out-of-the-box thinking allow Jacqui to achieve client-focussed solutions resulting in positive outcomes for her clients. As a Notary Public, Jacqui is also able to witness national and international documents and administer oaths for her clients. In what little free time she has, Jacqui enjoys watching and playing cricket with her young son, obeying her much-loved cats and curling up with a good book.

 

Martin de Haas- Senior Solicitor

Martin has a distinguished legal career in Commercial, Taxation and Estate Planning law, running his own practice. He wanted to retire but we just couldn’t let him as he has too much to offer our clients. We keep him busy reviewing all our legal documents, dealing with more complicated estate matters and developing new estate planning strategies and documentation. If you have a complex matter, Martin will normally have a solution.

Martin has a wicked sense of humour and a joke or story for every occasion. He also enjoys red wine, so we don’t let him spend time with Rohan for the sake of their health and their marriages.

 

Lisa Blanden- Customer Service Guru

Lisa is one of our hard-working administrators who prepare client files, arrange client appointments, answer phone queries, witness documents and generally keep the business running to the satisfaction of their demanding bosses. She’s a stickler for getting things right, so clients are in good hands when dealing with Lisa.

Lisa likes to travel and has lived in lots of places around the country. She’s from Mildura and so can probably tell you a lot about the wonderful Murray River.

 

Allison Foster- Customer Service Guru

Allison is the longest serving member of staff in our business having worked in numerous roles over 5 years. Now she partners with Lisa to ensure the clients are well looked after, and our constantly refining processes work properly. Her wealth of knowledge about our business and client history proves invaluable on a day to day basis.

When we allow Allison time off, you’ll often find her with her family enjoying marine activities. We try not to be envious.
