Property law and Estate Planning are Robert Cole’s key professional interests, which see him working closely with some of South West Victoria’s most successful and prosperous businesses and their families.
Central to his passion for his work is always the people; achieving family harmony in Estate Planning is his ultimate goal.
Robert maintains a feel for the community pulse via a mix of personal sporting interests (sailing, cycling and football) and positions on local committees and boards.
This includes seven years as Warrnambool Primary School’s Council President and three years on the board of Lyndoch Living. Both roles were inspired by Robert’s own family involvement: “as a country lawyer I consider it essential to be immersed in and contributing to the community”.
