Estate Litigation

Estate litigation

Whether you are a spouse or child of the deceased and find that you have not been treated fairly in the will, or you are an executor/executrix facing a claim from a dissatisfied beneficiary, we are ready to help. British Columbia’s Wills Variation Act gives our Courts the discretion to alter the gifts in a will in order to ensure that adequate, just and equitable bequests are made to the spouse or children of the deceased. 

We have successfully handled many estate litigation cases, including large and complex estate cases. We will give you excellent, timely, and cost effective advice, and assist you to: maximize what you obtain under the will as a beneficiary; resolve estate litigation to the satisfaction of all parties through mediation; or fight for and defend your rights at trial.

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.
