Wills and Estates Law

Having an estate plan is one of the most important things that you can do for your loved ones.
It’s your way of ensuring that your estate is well looked after in the manner of your choosing and that those who are closest to you are taken care of.

At Silver Law we offer the expertise you will need to assist you and your family with all aspects of estate planning including wills, trusts and planning for incapacity. If a loved one has passed away we also make applications for probate of wills or administration of estates without a will.

Our team is familiar with the new Wills Estates and Succession Act, introduced in BC in March 2014. We can therefore provide you expert advice in a timely and effective manner.
