Wills and Estates

Sound estate planning offers individuals and families peace of mind both during life and upon death. Our work involves the preparation of wills, powers of attorney, trusts and other documents in the areas of estate and tax planning, asset protection, succession planning and related areas. We also provide advice on planning for incapacity through the use of enduring powers of attorney, health care directives and living wills.

Our lawyers regularly provide advice to executors, trustees, attorneys and guardians on the administration of estates and trusts. We work closely with a team of accountants, or an accountant of the client’s choice, to evaluate relevant tax planning matters. We also have experience dealing with contentious estate issues such as legal claims involving challenges to wills and estates and claims under dependent’s relief legislation.
