Kerrie Wood is a Wills & Estates Lawyer at Maurice Blackburn’s Cairns office. Kerrie has worked for the firm since 2015 and began practising exclusively in Wills & Estates litigation and estate administration since she was admitted in 2019.

“Succession law is a very emotional area of law and we deal with clients who are not only grieving the loss of a loved one but are also dealing with potentially having been excluded from a will or are having to navigate the daunting and often complex estate administration process.”

Kerrie finds being able to assist clients, particularly when they may not be able to afford the cost of accessing these legal services, very satisfying. She enjoys being able to make what is often an incredibly stressful time for her clients a little bit easier.
