ESTATE LITIGATION

Wills & Estate litigation helps clients resolve difficult situations that often involve family and friends.

An experienced Estate Litigation team can assist you in resolving contentious issues effectively. When disputes arise in respect of Wills, estates, trusts or powers of attorney, having a lawyer on your side will make all the difference.

Whether you are a spouse or child of the deceased and find that you have not been treated fairly in the will, there are funds which have been distributed by joint tenancy that you thought should have been in the Estate, or you are an executor/executrix facing a claim from a dissatisfied beneficiary, we are ready to help with any potential Estate Litigation.

British Columbia’s Wills, Estates and Succession Act gives our Courts the discretion to alter the gifts in a will in order to ensure that adequate, just and equitable bequests are made to the spouse or children of the deceased. If you feel you have not been treated fairly in a Will, an Estate Litigation lawyer from Davidson Lawyers LLP can help.

We can help with all manner of estate-related litigation including probate services, assisting executors and trustees, administration of trusts and variation of wills. We will give you excellent, timely, and cost-effective advice, and assist you to maximize what you obtain under the will as a beneficiary, resolve estate litigation through settlement or mediation, or fight for and defend your rights at trial.
