Highly Skilled Calgary Estate Litigation Lawyers
Estate disputes can be emotional, complicated, and time-consuming affairs. In addition to the significant stress they cause to the parties involved, Estate disputes can also rapidly deplete the assets and funds of an Estate, further negatively impacting the beneficiaries.
Proper Estate planning with the help of a knowledgeable and highly experienced Estates lawyer can help decrease the potential of future Estate litigation. Estate planning is something that all adults, regardless of the amount of wealth or assets they have, should think about doing to protect themselves, their assets, and their family and loved ones.
Where Estate disputes do arise, any resulting litigation should also be handled by a lawyer with significant experience in the area. At DBH Law, we have been helping clients with Estate related matters and representing them at trials and in other forms of dispute resolution for more than 25 years.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
As the name implies, alternative Dispute Resolution (also known as ADR) is a means of resolving disputes outside of traditional methods such as going to court.
ADR includes mediation and arbitration, which both provide parties with the opportunity to work through their issues in a mutually beneficial and creative manner in a non-adversarial setting. ADR is more cost-effective than litigation, and still allows participants to protect their interests and reach fair agreements.
At DBH Law we strive to resolve Estate disputes through out-of-court settlements, mediations, and other alternative dispute resolution methods whenever possible. Our highly knowledgeable Calgary Estates lawyers work hard to find cost-effective and efficient solutions to our clients’ Estate related disputes before going to court.
