Acting as a guardian of property for an individual who is incapable of making their own property decisions can be an overwhelming task for a friend or family member. When there is no one willing or able to act as guardian of property, a Siskinds lawyer can assist.

As court-appointed guardians of property, we have the extensive knowledge and experience necessary to develop an appropriate property management plan, keep proper accounting records as required by legislation, work with the individuals making personal care decisions, and work with service providers and supporting family members.

Our goals as court-appointed guardians of property are to help the individual realize their full potential by using all of the skills and abilities they have. We involve them in all decisions and plans to the extent that they are able, and build on their present circumstances to create a secure plan for the future including accessing available government programs and income tax incentives. Our guiding principle is to make timely, informed and effective decisions in the person’s best interests that are tailored to each unique situation.

Adnan was invaluable in helping us through our various acquisitions as fast a paced growth Fintech company. Despite being in a unique industry, Adnan demonstrated his expertise time and time again by supporting us through difficult negotiations, ensuring our interest were protected at all times, and ensuring the deals were completed in a cordial and timely manner. On top of all of that, we needed regular support with various internal corporate matters, all of which Adnan handled with comfort and ease. Adnan is also very well connected in the industry and was readily able to link us with the necessary experts we needed to handle the various legal matters. Most of all, what impressed me the most, is Adnan’s commitment and dedication and the late hours he spent ensuring he was always available at the critical times to address any issues that came up. - S.K.

I am certainly grateful for Jill McCartney and Madeline McKinnon for all the time they spent on the class action for my and many others issue. People like me do not understand all the legal procedures and get impatient but the team was there to answer any questions or concerns no matter how many times I called or e-mailed and encouraged me to do so . In the end Jill made sure I totally understood the decisions.  Thank you so much for caring. Would recommend this firm anytime. - F.A.

I am sincerely grateful to Leanne Kuchynski for representing my wife and I in what we considered to be an unprecedented situation. Leanne's compassion, practical advice, openness to feedback, brilliant strategic thinking and outstanding work ethic led to the most optimal outcome while maintaining a superior human experience. Despite the harsh realities of the situation, I felt extremely comfortable that our best interest was Leanne's utmost priority and was confident in her demonstrated ability. She was professional and exceptionally thorough, yet remained remarkably caring.

I use to have a somewhat cautious disposition towards lawyers based on past experiences; however, Leanne completely restored my faith in the profession and earned my unquestionable loyalty for all future legal needs. - S.M.
