The preparation of a Will and associated estate planning presents an opportunity for you to organize your affairs in a manner that provides for your loved ones as you think best. Each Will is as individual as the person making it, so it is important to get the guidance that will ensure your needs and intentions are met and that your Will conforms with all applicable laws.

If you die without a Will, Alberta law dictates who will administer your estate, who will share in your estate, the amount of their share, and the time at which they will share it. This scheme of distribution may be very different from what you would choose. The absence of a Will or other estate planning can cause unnecessary legal costs and increased family concerns at a very difficult time.

We can also assist with Estate Planning and the preparation of other documents such as Enduring Powers of Attorney and Personal Directives. Our experienced team of lawyers, paralegals and other staff can also work with executors, trustees and families on the Administration of Estates, including attending to any necessary court applications.

Give yourself the peace of mind and security in knowing that your estate plan is in good order, and that you have made the effort to preserve and protect your assets and to provide for your loved ones.

We can assist you with, but not limited to the following:

  • Will Preparation;
  • Powers of Attorney and Personal Directives;
  • Estate Planning;
  • Grant of Probate or Grant of Administration;
  • Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act Applications;
