Steps to get help with Ontario estates:
Step 1: Identify your needs
My team members identify if I can help you.
I work with the people I can help the most.
Referrals and existing clients are given priorities.
Step 2: Arrange a meeting.
Arrange a meeting for 45 minutes to assess your needs.

If you are the executor, we will need a copy of the Will before our meeting.
Step 3: Decide to take action.
You can accept my recommendations and hire me.
You will sign a contract to hire me and provide a deposit for fees (retainer).
Retainers vary and I will explain what is required at the initial meeting.
