Jo Maloney

Jo is our in-house Estate Planning Lawyer.

Since her admission in 2005, Jo has worked exclusively in wills and estates law in firms throughout south-east Queensland. Jo joined Best Wilson Buckley Family Law in mid-2018 as the founding member of our in-house estate planning team.  She now works with all of our family lawyers Brisbane across all office locations to review our client’s estate planning in the context of their family law matters and future pathways.

Jo’s extensive experience has allowed her to develop a depth and breadth of knowledge and understanding about this area of the law and how difficult it can be for families to think and talk about their estate planning. By working closely with our family lawyers, she is intimately aware of the impact significant changes in family circumstances can have on our client’s estate planning, and her nurturing, approachable, and pragmatic approach ensure that our client’s best interests are looked after in the event of their death or incapacity.

In addition to her Bachelor of Laws and Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, Jo holds a Bachelor of Business (Communications) from the Queensland University of Technology.
