Wills & Estates

We promise, this won’t hurt a bit.

Everyone knows that it’s important to have a Will and to make sure your Estate is in order so that you don’t saddle your family with confusion or conflict right at the moment they’re grieving. So why is it that so many of us never seem to make Will & Estate planning a priority?

We want you to know that creating a Will doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive or time-consuming. In most cases, it can be completed and codified within two meetings – and we ensure that your Will is safely stored so that it’s easily retrieved when needed

We’ll help you ensure that:

  • Your Will is signed and executed appropriately so your wishes are carried out when you’re no longer available
  • You have defined Executors and/or Trustees
  • Special bequests are defined according to your wishes
  • Children, step-children and grandchildren are appropriately accommodated
  • Provision is made for friends or family members not ordinarily covered by Ontario law
  • Where appropriate, we’ll communicate with your executors/trustees promptly and efficiently
