Guardianship & Trusteeship
When a loved one needs the protection and benefits of guardianship or trusteeship, we can help. We are one of the leading firms in Alberta in this area and have considerable experience developing and implementing the guardianship and trusteeship law. We are also involved with government organizations in the practical application of this legislation.
Our services in this area include:
- Supported decision making
- Emergency decision-making applications
If your situation involves a loved one with a disability, we can help you navigate guardianship and trusteeship laws, including:
- Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped applications (“AISH”)
- Persons with Disability program (“PDD”) applications and appeals
We will meet with you at the beginning of the process to make sure we fully understand your needs and give you a fee range. A refined, streamlined process allows us to be efficient—and cost-effective—so we can focus our attention where it’s needed most.
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. We always take the time to explain things and communicate in plain English.
Access to more resources
We have strong relationships with other professionals, like accountants and financial advisors, and will manage and coordinate them for you when needed.
When additional resources are required, we can leverage the knowledge of our Real Estate, Business, and Family Law groups.
