Ottawa Wills Lawyers

Many people understand the importance of having a will. Not everyone, however, is aware of the benefit of retaining a lawyer to draft and finalize a will. The security you gain by hiring a lawyer goes beyond knowing your will meets technical requirements and will hold up in the face of challenge. You will also know you have explored the full range of issues that a will can address and understand how it fits into the context of your broader estate planning.

The lawyers at Burke-Robertson LLP are experienced Ontario estate lawyers who maintain a successful and respected practice in Ottawa. Our goal is to assist clients with their immediate and long-term estate planning, and to remain accessible to them as their needs change over time.

Ensuring Security For Yourself And Your Loved Ones

Depending on the circumstances and goals of our clients, the lawyers at Burke-Robertson LLP may recommend including terms in a will such as:

  • Testamentary trust provisions
  • Guardianship of minor children
  • Identification of an estate administrator, or executor, for the estate
  • Special provisions for asset distribution, such as charitable donations

Our firm also prepares inter vivos or family trusts when they are appropriate tools to meet our clients' estate planning needs.

As members of the local community, we remain abreast of concerns of local individuals, families and business owners.
