It has been said that you don’t really know a person until you have had to share an estate with them. Sadly, this is all too often true. Estate disputes often carry with them a subtext of genuine need, betrayal, injured expectations, and hurt feelings. They are layered with emotional and legal complexities. Without the benefit of experienced counsel, these disputes can drag on and can tie up estates for years on end.

With knowledge and expertise built on many years of experience, Siskinds’ team of estate dispute lawyers are sensitive to the stressful nature of these disputes. We know our way around this specialized area of law, partner with and listen to our clients, and are committed to finding the most practical and cost efficient means of bringing a dispute to an end.

We represent clients in all types of estate and trust related disputes: Will challenges, business and farm succession challenges, claims for dependant support, claims rooted in unjust enrichment, matters involving breach of trust and fiduciary duty, trust or estate management concerns, elder financial abuse, and applications to remove, replace or review the actions of trustees, guardians and individuals acting under powers of attorney. In each case, our team brings to the table a blend of sensitivity, experience, fierce advocacy and determination that lets our clients know that we hear and care about them, that we will relentlessly strive to achieve the best results for them, and that whether it be through negotiation, mediation or in the courtroom, they are being properly and fully represented by excellent advocates.

Our clients come to us from across Ontario and are often referred by other professionals who recognize the depth of our expertise and our dedication to our clients. We hold a reputation for success and excellence.
