Pickering Estate Lawyer

Pickering Estate Lawyer - "The only things that are certain are death and taxes" is an old saying we've all heard. We would always be reminded of problems in the every day news, by businesses and institutions marketing their wealth-management services.

Our wills and estates lawyers advise our business partners on all aspects of estate and personal planning. Our services consist of preparation of wills, codicils, living wills, powers of attorney and guardianship issues. We work along with a diverse range of trust arrangements to accommodate clients' certain requirements.

Our lawyers working on wills and estates problems with rely heavily on the professionals within our firm on family law matters. Amongst the services we provide include marriage contract preparation and cohabitation agreements. We act as counsel in matters of divorce and separation, custody, support and property division. We know that matters related to family law and estate law are among the most susceptible to litigation. Individuals and families are susceptible and require individualized service with sensitivity to all the matters involved.

We represent clients in dependent relief and family law proceedings, will contestation and interpretation, variation of trust proceedings, passing of accounts, litigation trustees and acting as litigation guardian for minors. Due to the nature of these areas, our goal is to help clients attain their objectives through mediation and several alternative kinds of dispute resolution rather than through litigation.

We are able to assist families with our knowledge in advanced tax planning to assist them with their retirement planning, wealth planning, avoiding or minimizing of probate tax, and various taxation associated to death. At present there is an unprecedented transference of wealth happening, both on a corporate and individual level, from one generation to another. We offer services to help family businesses in problems of succession, other corporate reorganizations, estate freezing, partnership and shareholder agreements, and general compensation

For our clients, we also offer services for education savings plans, gifting programs, life insurance trusts, creditor-proofing mechanisms, immigration trusts, trusts or guardianships in concerns of disability, off-shore and domestic trust planning, and charitable giving planning.

We assist the personal representatives of the estate in the administration of the estate when death takes place. We could be appointed either by the deceased through a court appointment or will so as to act as the directly nominated estate representative.
