Giving you peace of mind for the future
McLeod Law has the largest, most comprehensive Wills, Trusts & Estates group in Alberta. We help you make informed decisions that are right for you and your situation. We take the time to truly understand your needs and guide you through the process so you can preserve your wealth and family harmony. You can feel confident knowing we’ll be with you every step of the way.
Our services include:
- A roadmap for your wealth and loved ones
- All things related to the succession and protection of your wealth, addressing family dynamics and deciding who and how much
- Wealth management for farm and ranch families
- Presentations to organizations, including charities and professional groups
A peaceful process is always the goal, but if a dispute does come up, we’ll give you options to resolve it as amicably as possible. We aim to reach a solution without going to court, and our extensive experience with mediation (both private and judicial) can help. If a trial is unavoidable, you can still rest assured knowing we’ve litigated successfully at all levels of Alberta court.
We are recognized as industry leaders and trend watchers. We educate individuals, financial advisors, and other lawyers on changes in legislation.
An efficient, practical approach
Our group is 40 years old and has 100+ years of collective experience. We’ve been doing this for a long time, which means we’ve developed a clear, simplified intake process. That allows us to be efficient—and cost-effective—so we can focus our attention where it’s needed most.
We’ll meet with you at the beginning to make sure we fully understand your needs and give you a fee range.
Our group also meets regularly to:
- Strategize on our clients’ cases
- Apply updated legislation to our methods
- Review the impact of new precedents
The meetings help us refine and improve our routine processes, so we keep everything—and everyone—working as efficiently as possible.
Lawyers who pick up the phone
You need a lawyer who takes the time to understand your situation and goals. Someone who is available to talk to you and will reply to emails quickly. You can decide how you prefer to communicate with us, and we’ll make sure you get the same level of service throughout the process.
Adding complicated legal jargon to an already complex situation isn’t helpful. You never have to worry about trying to translate complicated legal documents because we always take the time to explain things and communicate in plain English.
