Estate Law Lawyers Serving the Greater Toronto Area

We understand that when a loved one passes away, legal and financial matters are the furthest thing from your mind. Unfortunately, for those of us that are left behind, there are many legal and financial matters requiring attention. With over 25 years of legal experience we are here to help you navigate these complex matters.

As an Estate Trustee (aka executor), you are obligated to distribute the deceased's estate properly. This can be either in accordance with the terms of a Will or if no Will, via intestacy laws. Winding up an estate can be a daunting task. As an experienced Estate lawyer I can assist you through the estate administration process in an efficient and cost effective manner.

We will guide you through:

  • Probating the Will, and obtaining the appointment of Estate Trustee, or Administrator if there is no Will
  • Collecting Assets
  • Identifying liabilities
  • Post-mortem tax planning to maximize the deductions available to the estate
  • Ensuring that the required Government returns, including Income Tax and Estate Returns are completed properly
  • Distributing assets and funding trusts, if any
  • Closing the Estate and passing accounts if necessary
  • Finalizing any property transfers 
  • Drafting a new Will and Powers of Attorney for the survivor, or other family members if necessary
