About image

The administration of an estate can be very stressful, due to the emotions associated with death and the degree of attention that is required to put a deceased’s affairs in order. We can help you with those roles that specifically require a lawyer’s involvement and with respect to providing administrative support as requested.

Did you know that it is a common misconception that the lawyer who prepared the will must also be the lawyer who advises the estate trustee (also known as “the executor”) in the administration of the estate? In fact, the lawyer who advises the estate trustee is chosen by the estate trustee, unless there is a provision in the will as to which a lawyer is to be appointed.

The role of the lawyer is to provide general advice to an estate trustee with respect to estate administration. The lawyer will also prepare the application to the Court to obtain the Certificate of Appointment, as well as any documents necessary to transfer assets and settle the estate with the beneficiaries.

When you come to us with the legal objectives that need to be sorted out, we want to assist you because we understand just how much of a mess a death in the family can be.

Our experience in drafting wills, trusts, and powers of attorney are essential to the process, but they are germane to the state. Those are the factors that make up the beginnings of an estate planning program. The rest of the process is much more complex.

For example, the taxation of an estate can cause a significant headache during the estate planning program, luckily, we know how to assist.
