Principal/Accredited Specialist in Wills and Estates

A perfectionist at heart, and a hardworking one at that, Aaron is a Principal at Whyte Just and Moore and leads the Wills and Estates team. Achieving a Law Institute of Victoria specialisation and partnership at the firm before he turned 30, Aaron is not only driven, he is also committed to taking jargon-laden legalese and converting it into everyday language for his clients. After all, as Albert Einstein once stated, ‘if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough’. Aaron’s experience navigating the intricacies of the various aspects of Wills and Estates law means he is an expert in clearly explaining estate planning, trusts, probate, estate administration, superannuation and any and all associated disputes. His clear and easy-to-understand legal advice means Aaron’s clients can achieve conclusive legal outcomes that enable them to move forward with their lives.

Assisting people is a thread that also runs through Aaron’s life outside of the office in his work as a committee member of the Geelong Try Boys Brigade charity. When he’s not meeting with clients or meeting with the committee (or enjoying a coffee at his favourite Geelong CBD cafe, Fuel), you’ll most likely find Aaron spending time with his family and friends at home, or out for a meal and a drink. You might also find him stuck in a history book – understanding the past is a personal interest – or planning his bucket-list, one-day-it-will-happen, trip of a lifetime to Antarctica.
