Things went smoothly
I really appreciate what you and your staff did through this process. It really made things go smoothly. I also wanted you to know the main reason I chose your law firm was what you do for the community along with your donations. That goes a long way and speaks volumes.

My lawyer was patient, considerate and thorough.
Navigating the horrendous traffic between Coquitlam and North Vancouver was well worth it to have Westcoast Wills & Estates. My lawyer was patient, considerate and thorough. The advice he gave me superseded that of two previous lawyers when Wills were made out and this will save my executor future problems for which I’m grateful. I feel there is nothing that can be improved upon. I certainly will recommend Westcoast Wills and Estates for their excellent service to family and friends whenever the opportunity occurs.

Clarified the probate process from start to finish
After becoming executor of my late grandmothers estate, I reached out to Westcoast Wills and Estates for help with the work load. Working with Mike was great. He clarified the process from start to finish and really put my mind at ease when things got a little murky. It was never a problem to reach out to him for suggestions or if I had any questions, he always answered the phone or responded to any email promptly. His responsiveness made me feel like I was an exclusive client. I highly recommend this firm to anyone in need of help handling estate matters in their own family.

Final price was no surprise
We found this company great and all our questions were answered. I feel our Will was done perfectly for us. Also the pricing is well explained and the final price was no surprise.

They made the process easy for us
My wife and I wanted to update our wills and representation agreements. Westcoast made the process easy for us. Among the many items he pointed out that our car could be registered in both names to avoid probate issues. Further, beside hard copies of our documents we received a USB drive containing all documents to be kept separately in case the hard copies get destroyed. Jeremy also assured us that all documents will be kept by his office on an electronic file as a fall back. I wholeheartedly recommend Jeremy and the staff at Westcoast Wills. You will find yourself well served at a reasonable fixed price.

Charges a very reasonable price
We were certainly satisfied with Kirsten's work for us. Her firm specializes in wills and estates and charges a very reasonable price. They actually have a flat rate for all wills and estates. We were making changes to our wills which could have raised issues in this province and with Kirsten's help we were able to counteract any challenges that there might have been... We got much higher quotes from other law firms. And, they make a donation to charity from every payment.

Taking such good care of us

All our questions were answered

The process could not have been easier
We recently engaged Westcoast to help us draft new wills and representation agreements. The process could not have been easier. They provided us with a comprehensive plan and then went over all our concerns in layman terms to ensure we fully understood all the particulars. It is obvious that they have a passion for helping people with their wills, trusts and estates. We appreciate the patient, professional manner in which they handled our legal needs. We wholeheartedly recommend Westcoast Wills for developing plans to protect not only your current quality of life but also that of your loved one’s future. Thank you to the team at Westcoast for a job well done.

A pleasure to work with
My wife and I found getting our wills done to be a more challenging situation than we had imagined. Mike at Westcoast Wills and Estates made the process simple and in a matter of weeks it was done. He was a pleasure to work with and he came to us which was a great help. We’ve already recommended him to others.

Protects my children and assets
I found Mike Beishuizen of Westcoast Wills and Estates to be thorough, knowledgeable, and he makes the uncomfortable decisions of writing a will easy. Recently, I turned to Mike to prepare a will for me. I didn’t know how complex and important it was to have a will, power of attorney and a representation agreement. Mike created draft documents of everything for my review and was incredibility patient as I was slow to get back to him. I now have a will that protects my children and my assets. I want to thank Mike, and I am happy to refer him to anyone I know looking to protect their families with a will.

Worked around our schedule with his mobile offering
We engaged Mike to prepare our wills and powers of attorney to ensure our son was looked after in the event something were to happen. He was able to clearly and simply explain the key concepts to us in a manner we could understand, was quick to answer any email questions, and really worked around our schedule with his mobile offering. The whole process was quick and easy and we’d definitely recommend his services if you’re in need of some common sense advice.
Paul & Brandy M Port Moody October 29, 2016
End of life planning much easier than anticipated
I am pleased to highly recommend the services of Mike Beishuizen of Westcoast Wills & Estates. Mike’s knowledge and attention to detail is conveyed in a reassuring, personable manner, which has made the process of end of life planning much easier than anticipated.

Information in a non-judgmental, non-intrusive manner
Recently my husband and I had our wills, Power of Attorney document and Representation Agreement prepared by Ka Won Cheung of Westcoast Wills and Estates. We needed the documents prepared in quite a tight timeline and Ka Won was most accommodating. We found her to be knowledgeable, straight forward and willing to give us what we asked for. She was clear on her role in advising us of our rights and responsibilities and of potential pitfalls in the path we were determined to follow in regard to equal distribution of assets in our blended family. She gave this information in a non-judgmental, non-intrusive manner. What we really appreciated about Ka Won was her personal manner. She was lovely to work with in dealing with what could be a difficult conversation. She was a very good listener. She had a good sense of humour and was very gracious. As well, we felt that the cost of doing business at Westcoast Wills was very competitive.

Carefully explaining the myriad of details
Thank you, Mike, for your expertise in the completion of our Wills, Representation Agreements and Power of Attorney documents. You did an excellent job of carefully explaining the myriad details we needed to consider, providing us with the information we needed to make important and sometimes very difficult decisions. You have a warm and professional manner so that the meetings we had went smoothly. We appreciated you coming to our home to finalize the paperwork and for offering to meet with our daughters to sign the documents. We have already recommended you to family and friends.
Rob & Diane K Coquitlam April 27, 2016
Professional, friendly and expeditious
Ka Won recently helped my fiancé and I with our Wills. Ka Won was a pleasure to work with and she made the whole process quick and simple. Ka Won even came to our home, which was very convenient for us as we have a small child. She is very professional, friendly and expeditious. I would not hesitate to use Ka Won’s services again and highly recommend her to all my friends and family.

I feel much more secure now
I recently contacted Westcoast Wills to assist me with updating my Will and also to discuss Powers of Attorney and Representation Agreements. Their lawyer sat down with my husband and I and patiently outlined the types and use of each of the documents and also led us through how to set them up effectively for our needs. I would thoroughly recommend Westcoast Wills’ services to anybody in need of a will, power of attorney and/or representation agreement. I feel much more secure now that I know I have these documents in place. Thanks so much!

Excellent management of the probate
I want to thank Westcoast Wills for the way they handled all the issues around my brother's estate. Mike made the whole process very low stress. His explanations and clarifications made my decision-making very easy. I had no idea of the complexity of the estate administration process but Mike made it much simpler than it could have been. Again, thank you for the excellent management of probate for me.

A calm, honest and a very sensitive young man
Trusting your estate lawyer with your personal information is essential when drafting your Will, Power of Attorney and Health Representative Agreement. Mike Beishuizen, owner of Westcoast Wills and Estates, is a calm, honest and a very sensitive young man. His main stellar characteristic is that he has great patience. Deciding on end of life issues is essential to living the last half of your life peacefully and mindfully. Mike always remained objective with his opinions. I strongly recommend Mike Beishuizen and Westcoast Wills and Estates.

Knowledgeable, professional & friendly service
We just want to extend our appreciation to Ka Won and the team at Westcoast Wills. We really appreciate the knowledgeable, professional and friendly service we received. I would not hesitate to recommend Ka Won and Westcoast Wills & Estates to family and friends.

Professional, patient, and compassionate
Recently Mike guided our family through the committee process. If you are considering applying for a committee you already are experiencing a variety of emotions regarding this need. Mike was very professional, patient, and compassionate as we navigated our way through the necessary paperwork. He answered all of our questions, met with us at home, was readily available by email and phone, and kept us informed as to where we were in the process. We have already recommended Mike’s services to a number of our friends and acquaintances on the North Shore. We were extremely pleased with the services Mike provided, his rates were competitive, and our lives have been made less stressful as a result of his work.
Janelle and Neal E North Vancouver October 10, 2015
Unfailingly patient and understanding
Mike worked on our wills for several months and did excellent work on them. Ours was a complicated situation with a long backstory, but Mike was unfailingly patient and understanding. He gave us thoughtful and astute advice at points, which was extremely helpful and much appreciated. I would highly recommend Mike for stellar service and wise counsel.
Sheena H West Vancouver July 21, 2015
I was impressed by how knowledgeable he was
I really appreciate Mike’s services. He did a very thorough job and I was impressed by how knowledgeable he was in putting together my will. He also honored the original quote he gave me even though he ended up spending much more time than expected…..this was very much appreciated. I have already given his name to a few people and will have no problem recommending Westcoast to whoever is in need of a will.
Kelly J Vancouver February 9, 2015
Was always available to answer my questions about probate
My husband and I first contacted Westcoast Wills & Estates for help re-writing our wills. We were impressed by Mike's knowledge, patience and ability to explain concepts in terms we understood. When it came time to take my mother's estate through probate, I turned to Mike for help. He patiently and graciously led me through the probate steps and was always available to answer my questions and to perform the steps I was unable to do. Many times I wished that Mike had written my mother's will for her! Thanks Mike for all of your help and thanks to the team at Westcoast too. I will continue to refer people to you in the future.
Brenda J. North Vancouver February 1, 2015
I feel that I have the best Will available
Mike was one of the most professional and dedicated people. His knowledge was outstanding. I was in good hands… I feel that I have the best Will available, and to me, this is important. My family shouldn’t have to deal with me not being prepared. I would recommend Mike Beishuizen to everyone.
Chris G North Vancouver November 30, 2014
Provided excellent and timely services
Westcoast Wills & Estates provided excellent and timely services. The advice provided by Mr. Beishuizen was invaluable and cost-effective. I would definitely recommend him to anyone requiring legal assistance when dealing with an estate.
Angela N Vancouver November 5, 2013
Navigating the complex details
We have a great deal of gratitude for Mike for his patient and generous support of our mom, whist navigating the complex details of our father’s probate and estate details. His expertise, coupled with his kind and gentle approach, ensured a relatively smooth transition from the shock of our father’s passing through the endless details of inheritance and estate law. Mike’s home visits were characterized with highest of professionalism and with steady and reliable relational integrity. We can’t imagine how our family would have negotiated this transition without Mike.
