Wills & Estates

Many people put off estate planning or attempt it without a lawyer’s help. Succession law is technical and complicated. With our help, you can ensure your wishes are carried out and possibly save your heirs thousands of dollars in taxes and legal fees.

We draw simple and complex wills, powers of attorney, living wills and trusts. We also probate estates and provide general estate planning advice. For clients who find getting to our offices difficult or inconvenient, we make home and hospital calls. We also handle contested estate matters and applications under the Wills Variation Act.

Feel free to contact us for a free initial consultation. We are knowledgeable in this area of the law, and we are ready to give you timely advice, and to assist you in determining the strengths of your case.
