Some of the most important transitions in life are those that involve one generation taking steps to ensure the security of the next one. Individuals, families, and small business owners from all walks of life want the peace of mind that comes with the preparation and orderly succession of property to their children and successors. Clients throughout the Lower Mainland turn to the lawyers of Owen Bird’s wills and estates group to obtain that peace of mind.

Owen Bird’s wills and estates lawyers provide our clients with personalized advice for all their estate planning and wealth preservation and management needs. We work closely with individuals to draw up wills and estate plans that help them achieve their personal and financial goals. We also develop comprehensive power of attorney documents, create family individual and trusts and tax planning strategies, and oversee the process of asset protection and succession planning to ensure our clients’ long-term goals are met.

Sometimes, however, a bequest or estate plan is disputed by beneficiaries and would-be heirs, or an argument will arise over the interpretation of a testator’s wishes. In these unfortunate circumstances, our clients rely on Owen Bird’s estate litigation lawyers to either bring the dispute to a swift and private resolution, or to steer the matter through the litigation and trial process, always looking out for the ultimate interests of our client and his or her family. We are committed to the solutions that work best for you.
