/  Wills and Estates

It is essential to understand that creating a Will is not a typical DIY project.

Many "Free Will Kits" are widely available, a Will is a legal instrument that detail how your assets are to be distributed after death. While it may not be mandatory to enlist the services of a lawyer to draft a Will, specific guidelines must be followed. Failure to adhere to these guidelines precisely can result in an invalid Will. Making errors or overlooking essential aspects of the process is easy without legal expertise, which could lead to your assets being distributed in a way you didn't intend, or worse, your Will being declared invalid.

Understanding the  numerous benefits

Hiring a lawyer to draft your Will and provide estate planning advice can bring numerous benefits. You may include any custom clauses in your Will that you wish to add or make multiple Wills. Not only can your lawyer provide advice specific to your situation, but your lawyer can refer you to other professionals where necessary. With a lawyer's help, you'll receive a comprehensive document that protect you from disputes. This can save your loved ones from unnecessary stress and expenses in the future. In contrast, a self-written Will is often filled with vague language that can be interpreted differently, leading to conflicts among family members.

Estate Planning and Will Drafting

Comprehensive Estate Planning 

is paramount for anyone seeking to ensure their assets are bequeathed to the intended individuals. It involves creating legally valid Wills and Powers of Attorney that appoint substitute decision-makers for your property and personal care needs, settle your debts and estate taxes, and ensure your beneficiaries are provided for. Additionally, estate planning encompasses the guardianship of minor children, disabled adult children and cherished pets. A qualified lawyer can provide an estate planning checklist to streamline the process, save time, and ensure everything is managed appropriately. Leaving your assets to chance is a precarious approach - estate planning can provide peace of mind and safeguard your loved ones. It is important to remember that estates encompass everything from investments to homes, cars, savings accounts, personal possessions, and furniture. Therefore, act today and take the first step towards securing your assets.

In addition to the distribution of assets, you can create a separate document to detail your specific wishes regarding funeral or burial arrangements, charitable donations, or the donation of your organs for medical research purposes.


Probate is a legal process that validates the authenticity of a Last Will and Testament and authorizes the executor to administer the estate per the wishes of the deceased. The process is required when the deceased's assets are solely in their name and must be transferred to beneficiaries or sold to settle debts. In Canada, most Wills require probate, except for jointly held assets transferred to the joint asset holder. It should be noted, however, that in cases where all property is jointly owned and passes through survivorship, probate may not be necessary.
