Wills and Estates

Estate planning is important for everyone. Through this process you can determine who will make choices about your end-of-life care, who will be guardian of your minor children if you pass away unexpectedly and who will be your asset beneficiaries. Even if you think your concerns are simple, when the issues are so important it is best to get the advice and guidance of a lawyer. Legal counsel will not simply fill out forms on your behalf; they will advise you on the best way to structure your estate to meet your personal and financial objectives.

Planning And Administration Legal Services

Individuals have many legal options when it comes to estate planning. We will outline your options for wills and powers of attorney, and related documents such as representation agreements and living wills (advance directives). These can achieve such objectives as:

  • Granting authority to make legal and personal care decisions for you if you become mentally incapacitated
  • Determining your wishes for your medical care
  • Granting authority to make legal or financial decisions while you are mentally capable

In addition, we can discuss other estate planning tools such as trusts and provisions for dependants and persons with disabilities.

Our lawyers also offer probate and estate administration services. We help executors to fulfil their responsibilities to an estate and advise family members when a person died intestate (without a will).
