The handling of wills and estates is an area of law that requires the personal touch. In doing so, we work closely with clients to help develop estate plans that meet each client’s needs, wishes and circumstances.

To provide an orderly transfer of assets, we are able to draw upon the skills of our colleagues in the business law group as well as a network of trusted financial advisors.

We assist with personal planning as well as complex planning that involves business succession and tax minimization. We also work alongside estate trustees (executors) on all aspects of personal planning and estate administration. In addition, we represent individuals in estate litigation, will and estate disputes, guardianships, and Powers of Attorney.

Wills and estates services include:

  • Wills
  • Power of Attorney for property
  • Power of Attorney for personal care
  • Trusts for children, grandchildren and other young beneficiaries
  • Life trusts for individuals
  • Protective life trusts for individuals with special needs (Hensen Trusts)
  • Life insurance, RRSP and RRIF beneficiary issues
  • Joint property issues
  • RESP issues
  • Estate administration tax (probate fees) minimization
  • Preparation of Estate Accounts
  • Formal Passing of Accounts
  • Act as Estate Trustee During/Pending Litigation

Thank you Anna and staff. Yesterday was exhausting as you said but it was also interesting to watch the whole process. It was also refreshing to see such strength , kindness and compassion on your part in what looks to be a very harsh, ruthless environment. Thank you for your perseverance throughout the day to reach the best deal for M. that you could under the circumstances. It is a relief to know that this part of the process is over and that he now has a much better chance of securing a peaceful life. - J.

As the COO of a midsize company I contacted Siskinds with regards to an intricate and somewhat challenging H.R. issue, and we were directed to Christopher Sinal. Upon review of this complex situation, his in depth knowledge of H.R. law allowed us to construct a clear and strategic plan. Phone calls and email enquiries were dealt with efficiently and timely. Chris displayed his competency and confidence in our final negotiations to bring closure to the case. We appreciate his preparedness and professionalism in representing our firm. - B.D.
