The experienced probate lawyers from Westcoast Wills & Estates ease the burden on executors and estate administrators. The stresses of being an executor of a will can often be overwhelming. When you book with an estate lawyer at Westcoast’s North Vancouver office, you start with an initial consultation, where the estate lawyer educates executors about all the steps to take in estate administration. Following this first meeting, a probate lawyer can help as much or as little as needed with the probate application or otherwise.

Committeeship lawyers in North Vancouver
Our committeeship lawyers in North Vancouver can apply to court on your behalf for an appointment of committee. This is most often required when a person becomes incapacitated and they have not already appointed someone else to handle their finances in a power of attorney. In this case, all assets in their name are effectively frozen, from bank accounts to real estate. If your loved one is in this situation, someone may need to be appointed as their committee of estate. There are a lot of ins and outs, so its best to call to have a consultation with one of our experienced North Vancouver committeeship lawyers before deciding what to do.
