Here is a more detailed description about the various types of legal services we provide:

Every adult who owns assets, has a spouse, or has young children should have a will. Remarkably, few do.
Let us help put together estate-planning documents that best reflect your final wishes. The few hours spent with us planning your estate can save your loved ones a considerable amount of hassle, heartache, and expense.

  • be able to appoint a guardian of your choice for any young children;
  • be able to keep down the costs of administering your estate
Litigation is a stressful and extensive process for which you will want a lawyer with you every step of the way. We have the dedication and the experience you need to handle matters involving personal injury, demand letters, recovery of unpaid accounts, and labour disputes.
Whether you have suffered a loss and are considering filing a lawsuit, or if you have had a lawsuit filed against you, contact me for an honest assessment and to work with you to present the best case possible.
