Wills and Estate Planning
The best time to make your will is today.
We offer personalized advice on the creation of an estate plan that ensures your documents give full effect to your wishes.
Estate Administration and Probate
→ Have you been named as an executor in a will?
→ Has a loved one passed away without leaving a will?
We’re here to help.
When a person passes away, their estate must be administered by the person appointed as the executor or personal representative.
The estate administration process involves identifying estate assets, determining whether a grant of probate or grant of administration from the court will be required, paying off the estate debts, and distributing the estate to beneficiaries. We help guide you through this process from start to finish.
Lawyer’s estate administration fees are generally payable out of the deceased’s assets.

Contentious Estate Matters
Even when a will, personal directive, and power of attorney have been drafted, disputes can arise.
At Pure Legal we are knowledgeable about the full scope of issues that may arise when an estate is contested. We have experience in representing clients in contentious matters including applications to remove an executor or attorney, challenges to a will, and unfair distributions of an estate. We are committed to giving you straightforward guidance to resolve conflicts and, if required, navigate through the court process, without incurring significant costs.
