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

I felt really safe knowing you [Daniel Hynes] were looking after my interests. I felt like you had my back. You were very professional, kind and caring, and I was very happy with how you handled everything.  –G.A.

Siskinds is a well known law firm that delivers results! I had a challenging issue that Dagmara Wozniak met head on with creative and solution based ideas. She provided a solution in a short amount of time and I would highly recommend her! No one likes legal issues and yet they happen. If you need results ... call Siskinds. - S.F.

Siskinds was very good when I needed them! We were going through a very difficult time. Mr. [Jim] Virtue and Siskinds were very helpful. I had suffered an injury, and during the proceedings my husband was diagnosed with cancer. It was a very overwhelming period for us. Siskinds was very understanding and we were appreciative of the outcome. - S.M.
