  • “Leah had been recommended to us and she more than met our expectations – both Leah and her support staff were a pleasure to deal with. Leah was most helpful and knowledgeable in describing the range of options available when deciding the details of our Wills, Powers of Attorney and Representation Agreements. The required documentation was completed promptly and efficiently. We would not hesitate to recommend Leah and her team.”

  • “We went to see Leah & Gia when medical circumstances changed for our dad and he was no longer capable of looking after any legal issues. The staff at Fulton were amazing. Mom is very hard of hearing and Leah & Gia took the time to make sure she understood what they were saying. They gave Mom excellent advice and she said it felt like a huge weight had been lifted from her. The entire staff were truly amazing – very professional, knowledgeable, caring and genuinely interested in what was happening with our mom and family. After mom updated her documents, I also decided it was time for me to see Leah & Gia to update my documents as well. I have already referred several people to Fulton and will continue to do so.”

  • “Wills are never an easy topic to discuss, however, they are truly important because they give you, your family and your benefactors peace of mind.  Leah provided me with peace of mind as well as compassion and a caring attitude throughout the entire process. Leah and her staff’s professionalism shone through, as all of the updates and changes I wanted in my Will were completed accurately and promptly.  Leah’s legal knowledge, experience and calm demeanor will be welcoming to anyone needing a Will or wishing to update their present Will.  When one thinks of the value of your assets and how you want them to be distributed, the cost of getting legal advice for your Will, is very affordable. Leah has helped me out tremendously and has provided me with the comfort I needed in having my Will prepared in such a precise manner, that I know my wishes will be adhered to.”

  • “Leah is prompt on all responses whether by email or by phone, and courteous and respectful. It has been a pleasure getting to know Leah and having her look after my legal requirements – I will continue to use this firm and Leah for all my legal matters in the future. Thanks Fulton for all the great service and advice over the years.”

  • Leah had been recommended to us and she more than met our expectations. Both Leah and her admin support staff were a pleasure to deal with. Leah was most helpful and knowledgeable in describing the range of options available deciding details of our Wills, Powers of Attorney and Representation Agreements, and the required documentation was completed promptly and efficiently. We would not hesitate to recommend your firm.

  • “The estate services provided by Leah Card were exemplary in every way. She provided excellent advice to me in my role of executor, processed legal and other paper work quickly and efficiently, and was always quick to respond to email and telephone inquiries. Because I do not live in the city where my parents resided, she became my trusted “on-site agent” for all local matters.”

    E.
  • “Leah has proven to be very helpful with my brother’s estate, as well as legal updating of my Will. She is easy to talk to, very professional and knowledgeable.   She is someone I have referred friends to if they need help.  Also, her team has been great re: booking appointments and completing paper work.”

  • “My mother was placed in a long term care home due to Alzheimer’s, then shortly after, my step-father passed away. Unfortunately, neither my mother nor stepfather had Wills, Power of Attorney in place to look after things if they became incapacitated or passed away. I was completely lost and didn’t know how to make any arrangements for my stepfather or how to ensure that we were able to continue to provide the care that my mother needed. Luckily for me, I was referred to Leah Card.

    Leah immediately laid out the steps we needed to take with regards to my stepfather’s estate, but first and foremost, was a plan to look after my mother’s welfare. She led me through the process of being appointed as “Committee” for my mother, and then subsequently the process of being appointed Administrator of my stepfather’s estate. In 2013 my mother passed away and Leah was right there for me again.”

    K.M.
  • “My wife and I went to Leah to have our estate plan and Wills drawn up.  Neither of us had any idea what to expect or where we should even begin.

    Leah was very approachable and helpful and alleviated our anxiety. From the very first meeting she explained everything to us and walked us through the whole process, providing us with all of our options and giving us hypotheticals, allowing us to make informed decisions that were right for our particular situation. We also had complex corporate interests, yet Leah broke them down into manageable components so that we could deal with the whole picture in a clear and concise method. She answered all of our questions in a manner that was easy to understand and was very responsive to our requests.

    My wife and I were very pleased with the service and support that we received while dealing with Leah.  We would not hesitate to recommend her or Fulton to anyone requiring legal services.”

  • “I live in a small town in northern BC and I must say that I was a little apprehensive about how the logistics of having a lawyer that lives eight hours away would work out but Leah and her team have made it all go very smoothly. From the first call I had with Leah, I began to feel better about how we would manage this very complicated mess. This was a very emotional time for me and Leah’s calm, compassionate and professional manner made things much easier.”

    K.M.
  • “I know Leah is very busy but it seemed like she dropped everything else and immediately started working on getting me appointed as Administrator for my mother’s estate.  My stepfather’s estate is very complicated and because part of the estate is in another country. There have been long periods of time where there has been no reason for Leah and I to communicate while waiting on others, and it always amazes me that when I do contact her she can remember everything that is going on, just as if my case is the only one she is working on.”

    K.M.
  • “With the complexity of the two estates I administer, I have dealings with two other law firms outside of Canada.  I find Fulton’s rates to be very competitive especially given the level of expertise that Leah and her associates provide. I have in the past and will continue to recommend Leah to my family and friends. I will also continue to urge everybody to talk to Leah before, not after you find yourselves in my position.”
