Practice Areas

Our goal is to resolve your legal problems as quickly and economically as possible.

Wills & Estate Planning


A Will is a written document which takes effect on your death and contains instructions as to how and to whom your assets will be distributed. In British Columbia, a Will must be in writing and must witnessed by two persons, both present while the Will is being signed and witnessed.

Every adult who owns assets or has a spouse or young children should have a Will. By not having a Will, you lose control over who gets how much of your estate and when.  You also give up the right to appoint a guardian of your choice for any young children you have and the costs to administer your estate will be drastically increased.

Family Law


Family Law in British Columbia comes under the jurisdiction of the Family Law Act and the Divorce Act. There are several different approaches to resolving disputes between parties in the context of family law and it is important that you choose the approach which best suits your personal situation. There is no reasonable substitute to consulting with a qualified and experienced family-law lawyer.




Estate Litigation


Estate and trust challenges are complex areas of law that often involve litigants and defendants who may be in the throes of family turmoil. These emotionally charged cases are complicated by laws that are often unclear.
