Preparing a Will and Estate planning can be an overwhelming task for many. We are compassionate and results-focused, and will work with you to ensure that you are comfortable with the documents you put in place. Our lawyers provide guidance and support with a view to ensuring that your intentions are captured in your documents and lead to an effective and efficient distribution of an Estate.
Our lawyers can also assist you in planning for someone to step in and handle your finances and your care and maintenance during periods of incapacity, through the utilization of Personal Directives and Enduring Powers of Attorney. Alternatively, you may be alerted to a friend or relative in a state of incapacity who has no documentation in place for a substituted decision maker to handle financial or personal matters. In such cases, our lawyers can provide guidance on how to obtain a court-appointed representative for the person. We can also provide advice and assistance to the appointed representative on their ongoing obligations while acting as another’s Guardian and/or Trustee.
Estate Litigation: We understand that there are times when disputes arise during the administration of an Estate. Our adept lawyers can assist you and your family in dealing with Estate difficulties by crafting creative solutions outside the court process. Our goal is to work on your behalf to reach a fair resolution to the dispute, but in the event your matter needs to be litigated, we have the knowledge and experience to represent you and your interests in the Court system.
