Benjamin Franklin said that there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes. While it may feel morbid to plan for your own death, something as important as the distribution of your estate and protecting your loved ones when you’re no longer able to do so yourself, should not be taken lightly or pushed aside for another day. Planning for the future of your estate warrants thoughtful consideration and clearly drafted legal documents. Sitting down with a lawyer and creating a comprehensive estate plan is the easiest way to get your affairs in order and ensure your wishes will be carried out in the future.

It is a common axiom that the law was never meant to apply to domestic life, and it’s true that family law can feel flawed at best, particularly when you’re in the middle of an already emotional and stressful life event (positive or negative). The easiest way to ensure your family’s emotional, financial, and legal future is to use family law as a tool for establishing clear and compassionate boundaries in relationships. Regardless of whether you are creating and growing a new family, or dissolving an existing one, with collaborative legal services, the focus is on developing a plan that works in the best interests of the family unit as a whole.

Also known as limited scope retainers or unbundled legal services, legal coaching is a way for people who don’t need or cannot afford full scope legal services to still seek and receive the assistance of legal counsel. Through legal coaching, you retain full control over your legal matter, and only pay for the advice and support that you actually need behind the scenes. You can use legal coaching services once or as a consistent checkpoint for advice and direction throughout your case. Although our office is located in Calgary, legal coaching services can be conducted virtually and are available to clients across Alberta.
