Having a lawyer assist you with the preparation and execution of your Will is one of the most common reasons a person will have to contact a law firm.

Estate Planning goes beyond the basic preparation of Wills and may also include one or more of the following:

  • Personal Directives: sometimes referred to as a “Living Will”; a Personal Directive provides direction to family, friends and medical professionals as to how to care for you should you become incapacitated due to injury or illness and be unable to communicate;
  • Enduring Power of Attorneys: similar to a Personal Directive, an Enduring Power of Attorney provides instructions dealing with your finances if you are unable to communicate due to injury or illness;
  • Succession Planning: if you operate a business, Estate Planning also involves a thorough examination as to the best strategy to document the future of your business interests and investments. In consultation with your accounting advisors it may be prudent to address corporate restructuring, estate freezing and business succession planning.


In speaking with a lawyer about comprehensive Estate Planning, many topics will be covered. Your instructions will ultimately provide guidance with respect to everything from the types of investments you have, including insurance policies and available tax benefits, to creating Trusts for spouses and minors and guardianship arrangements for children and grandchildren.
