PRACTICE AREAS - TRUSTS & ESTATES

 

We can help create wills with a view to the minimization of Estate Administration Tax as well as powers of attorney to plan for and deal with the effects of mental incapacity. You want to pass on your wealth, the way you decide, without unnecessary tax consequences for you or your beneficiaries. You also want some control over the medical and health care decisions during your final days. It is essential to have a legal professional assist you in navigating the complicated legal waters of estate planning in Ontario.

 

At Djonin Law Office P.C., our founding lawyer Grozdana has experience helping clients in the GTA and surrounding areas establish their wills, trusts, financial and health care powers of attorney (POA), living wills and advance health care directives. Call us for a consultation to discuss your estate planning needs. We serve clients throughout the GTA from our downtown Toronto location.

Helping You Protect and Distribute Your Assets

 

If you are over the age of 18, you should have three documents: Power of Attorney for property, Power of Attorney for personal care, and a Will. These are necessary as you never know when an unfortunate event can lead to incapacitation or death. The preparation of these documents is termed as estate planning. They help in avoiding family disputes and simultaneously give you the chance to express your wishes in advance.

 

Trust our firm to take you through the estate planning process and help you choose the right options to get beneficial results. Call us today!
