I am very grateful for the help given by Mr Rod Genders in the matter of my wife’s estate. His advice was given very clearly in a way that was easy for me to understand. My wife’s will had to go to probate and Mr Genders handled that most efficiently, relieving me of a great deal of anxiety. I can recommend his services without hesitation to anyone in similar circumstances.

Radio interview with Rod Genders
“How to stop the Government giving away your assets after you die and charging a fortune to do it”
With all the recent talk about Australia’s ageing population, changes to superannuation and media speculation about the possible return of death duties, this timely interview reveals senior legal specialist Rod Genders from the oldest law firm in South Australia dishing the dirt on:
- how estate companies make their fortunes from “free” Wills
- how to save your family over $10,000 when they administer your deceased estate
- how to avoid Government bureaucrats taking control of your finances, accommodation, health & medical decisions
- plus much more.
This hard-hitting 45 minute radio interview tells the real truth about how to plan for the future, to protect yourself, your family and your assets.
Rod made, what seemed like an overwhelmingly daunting task, simple. He explained things as they were, and took all the stress out of establishing our last will and testament. Extremely professional and friendly – I can highly recommend.
I have used the service of Rod Genders (Genders & Partners) couple of times. My initial meeting with him was to get some documents notarized, the document contained lot of legal terminology which I can’t understand. He spent the time to review the documents and provided advice with regards to what’s written in the document.
I cannot speak highly enough of the excellent service that I have received from Rod Gender and partners. Rod speaks in plain English and takes the time to make sure you have understood the options available to you and all the legal issues possible.This has meant that I feel extremely comfortable with the knowledge my life decisions are protected. Thanks for the piece of mind.
Wonderful people, fantastic service. Most importantly they return your phonecalls and emails promptly and not just from the assistant but the lawyer/notary themselves! That’s hard to find these days. I needed some documents notarized recently (in a hurray) and while most firms didn’t give me an accurate estimate (they gave me a hourly rate and told me to ‘bring in the papers’), these guys actually spent the time to review my documents ahead of time and gave me a quote which they stood by, even with extra printing and photo copying required at the appointment. Rare nowadays for law firms I believe. I’ll definitely go back to these guys!A Google User
My experience with Genders and Partners has been nothing short of brilliant. Friendly and experienced this team met and surpassed my needs. A full Estate Planning package was created in less than a week. The turnaround time was critical as I faced hospitalisation the following week. Most notably Rod Genders took the time to meet with each individual given power to make decisions on my behalf, which they and I found to be very reassuring.
If you are looking for a quality Estate Planning Attorney, someone you can trust to point you in the right direction and who will ensure your best interests are served, then I would highly recommend Genders and Partners to you. Thanks Rod and Team
I was recommended to Rod Genders and Partners, initially by a family member over 4 years ago, as I required my will updated. It was only after my partner Geoff and I met with Rod for preliminary discussions that we realised the impact Estate Planning had. That our Wills were only one aspect of our future planning, should anything happen to either of us in the future. We needed to make provision to cover possible outcomes for our health and wellbeing care, financial authorities and other aspects so vital to any Estate Planning, to ensure all contingencies were covered, Before going to Rod Genders and Partners, I thought I had covered all my bases having a basic Will prepared, but I can’t tell you how relieved I am now, to know my wishes in future living or my passing, are clearly articulated through my Estate Planning documentation arranged through Rod Genders and Partners.
Over the past few years I have recommended my mother (84) and mother -in- law (87) to Rod Genders to ensure their wishes are also well articulated through comprehensive Estate Planning. We were all very grateful that Rod Genders Estate Planning packages include free updates to documents for 2 years, should this be required. We have also found that being one of Rod’s clients has also meant that we are kept up to date with any legal changes that may impact our Estate Planning.
Genders and Partners assisted me through a really difficult time following a motor vehicle accident. Rod was very approachable and was always looking out for my best interest. Rod was very up front at the start with what to expect out of the lengthy claim process but the end result was much better than I could have ever expected. I’m thankful that during one of the most difficult and stressful times in my life I had someone like Rod in my corner fighting for the best possible result.
From the moment our appointment was made we felt comfortable with this company steeped in history. The appointment was confirmed by Rod himself which was done in a timely, very professional manner. On the day of our appointment we were a bit nervous, not sure if we were armed with all the information required, we were assured that nothing would be a problem. The office was terrific and as a large woman I appreciated the larger chairs. Information was exchanged in simple terms and Rod had no problem taking his time to explain points that I didn’t understand. I would highly recommend this firm for all legal matters and feel privileged to have been treated so well.
Genders and Partners have provided legal advice to myself and my family for many years. The advice has always been sensible and pragmatic, and provided in a timely, personable and professional manner. Genders and Partners have not only assisted us with general legal advice, but they have also assisted us with advice on wills, estates and also provided mediation services. We cannot speak too highly of the firm.
