Wills & Estates


When we are drafting a will for our clients, we have to keep several things into consideration, including, and among other things, governing legislation, property forming an estate, possibility of testamentary incapacity and undue influence, and potential tax implications.

Probate and Estate Administration

You may be entitled to administer the estate of a deceased according to a will, or according to the provisions of the Estate Administration Act if the deceased passed away intestate (meaning, no Will was formed).

Guardianship and Trusteeship

In Alberta, the Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act allows someone to apply for guardianship of an adult, and to administer the estate of an adult, because the adult may have a disability or, for other reasons, the adult is not capable of looking after their own personal or financial affairs.
