We understand the importance of planning ahead. It is essential that you have and maintain an up-to-date Will, estate plan, and the selection of those individuals or institutions to properly administer your estate.
Rest assured that, as with other areas of our practice, all Wills and Estates services are executed in a professional, respectful and timely fashion.
A properly drafted Will ultimately provides for a sound, timely, and cost-effective distribution of your estate according to your intentions not Provincial Legislation.
We offer a complimentary review of an existing Will that may be outdated due to changes in circumstances or changes in relevant laws. We look forward to meeting with you to answer questions about your existing Will or discuss the importance of having a properly drafted Last Will and Testament.

In assisting you with the planning of your estate, we will:
· Organize your worldly affairs in a time-effective and cost-conscious fashion;
· Prepare your assets for administration after death; and
· Provide advice and prepare to administer your estate as per your wishes.
