“I’m looking forward to building on Coles Miller’s success which is based on excellent personal service to our clients, be it in the office or at the clients’ home, whether it’s wills, powers of attorney, probate or trusts,” he said.
Anthony Weber joined Coles Miller in 2009, specialising in wills, living wills, powers of attorney and administration of estates.
