Problem solving is our forté.

Our Kamloops estate litigation lawyers know that high emotions and family dynamics underlie most estate related disputes.

Our lawyers are, by nature, particularly well suited for this type of  work – compassionate with our clients, yet firm with the opposing parties.  We also know that not all disputes need to be resolved in the courtroom – often mediation or alternative dispute resolution can achieve fair and satisfactory results. Representing clients in estate disputes at all levels of Courts in BC, our trial decisions have contributed to the development of emerging areas of estate law in the province.
