Madelaine Pelser

Partner

Madelaine’s early background was in Banking and Commercial Litigation, however, since 2005 she has practised solely in the Wills and Estates area.

In that year she commenced the long running case of Nicholson v Knaggs [2009] VSC 64 which challenged a Will in a large estate on the grounds of lack of testamentary capacity, lack of knowledge and approval of the terms of the will and undue influence. This case effectively changed the law relating to undue influence in Wills cases. She has also successfully conducted claims under part IV of the Administration and Probate Act 1958 and many other Estate Litigation matters.

Since joining Hutchinson Legal in 2014, Madelaine has concentrated on all matters regarding Elder Law, Guardianship and Administration, Estate Planning and the Administration of Estates. She has a clear approach to problem solving and a sensitivity and understanding of life’s problems, in particular around the grieving process.
