KCL Law promotes new principal lawyer
KCL Law has appointed a new principal lawyer within its estate group, effective 1 August.
Jennifer Maher has been promoted to the position of principal lawyer after joining the firm in 2014 as special counsel. She is an accredited wills and estate specialist and practices across estate litigation, estate administration, estate planning, trusts and asset protection.
Her practice includes assisting families with aged loved ones, assisting and advising attorneys and guardians on their duties, as well as providing advice on the transition to aged care.

Principal lawyer and head of the estate group Sam Frey said Ms Maher’s appointment is a deserved and significant milestone.
“She is highly regarded by her peers and has developed longstanding relationships with her clients and referral networks. Jennifer’s appointment recognises her dedication to the profession, commitment to her clients and contribution to the firm,” he said.
