Protecting your Legal Rights with Wills, Estates & Representation

At Simard & Associates, we believe that when it comes to the most important legal documents of your life, seeking professional guidance will lead to sound end-of-life decisions and robust documentation. Our team of wills and estate lawyers aim to help our clients in efficiently arranging their personal and business matters, and plan for events such as illness, disabilities, incapacitation, aging or death.  We have been serving the residents of Ottawa and the City of Clarence-Rockland since 1996.

 

Whether it is business succession planning, ongoing wealth transfer, representation through trusts and powers of attorney, or inheritance planning, Simard & Associates has a team of wills and estate lawyers to:

  • Help you understand the importance of organizing the ownership and succession of your assets and debts.
  • Advise you on the various aspects to consider while planning your will, estates, trusts and powers of attorney.
  • Work closely with you and your other professional partners, such as financial advisors, tax planners, estate administrators, or business legal teams to get the necessary documentation support and develop tailor-made plans as per your requirements.
  • Ensure that the documents for your will, estate planning or trust creation are drawn up in a manner that honour your wishes and protect the interest of your loved ones in difficult, unforeseen circumstances, or when the inevitable happens.
  • Assist you in the creation of practical, legally-sound documents that hold up under any subsequent court scrutiny or disputes.

We understand that creating a will or an estate plan can be a deeply personal, emotional and at times, complicated process. Our compassionate and experienced team of wills and estate lawyers is pleased to partner with you in this important task. We will listen to you carefully, understand your objectives clearly, and offer thoughtful and thorough legal services that respect your wishes.
