Wills & Estates

An up-to-date estate plan is the best gift which an individual can give to his or her family. Rackel Belzil LLP, under the leadership of Karen M. Rackel, Q.C., has extensive experience in developing estate plans which include the preparations of Wills, Enduring Power of Attorneys, Personal Directives, Supported Decision-Making Forms and Inter Vivos Trust Agreements. Typically, the most significant decision that an individual has to make in developing an estate plan is choosing an Executor, an Attorney, and an Agent. When Rackel Belzil LLP discusses estate planning, we work collaboratively with the client’s other professional advisers to first determine the client’s goals, and then to decide the process by which these goals can be achieved, taking into consideration the costs of implementation, probate fees, tax matters, and complexity.

In addition to estate planning, Rackel Belzil LLP can provide assistance on estate administration. We can obtain grants of probate or administration in an efficient fashion and guide personal representatives through all stages of the estate administration.

Our Wills & Estates team members are Karen M. Rackel, Q.C., Robbi Bitner, and Linda Manning.
