Innisfil and Barrie Estate Planning Lawyers
Everybody needs a will. And your will needs to be reviewed from time to time, whenever your circumstances change. Preparing for your death through careful estate planning is one of the most important things you can do to safeguard the future of your family and your business. Your estate plan gives you the opportunity to make your wishes known with regard to how your property should be distributed at the time of your passing. You may also wish to include instructions for your medical care and how your personal affairs should be handled if you become incapacitated. Mediation or arbitration can be an optimal method of resolving estate disputes outside the court. Mike Adams is an experienced mediator and arbitrator.
Mike Adams and Ellen Anderson co-chair (with Toronto counsel Ian Hull) a special section of FDRIO, the Family Dispute Resolution Instituted of Ontario www.fdrio.ca; the section focuses specifically on resolving estate disputes, including family business succession planning issues, outside the court system.
