Wills and Estates

We all know it: we should have an up-to-date will in case the worst happens. The same is true of a power of attorney and a health care directive. In fact, you should go and print off a free health care directive right now from the province’s website here, (along with the WRHA’s planning guide here,) and fill it out today.

Wills and powers of attorney, while not free, can be surprisingly affordable. You know the reason to have them: they save time, money, and heartache when they’re eventually needed. Give us a call and find out how they can fit your advanced planning needs.

Estate administration and probate is something that, fortunately, most of us do not need to do very often. However, when you’ve lost a friend or loved one and need someone to help you with the process, it’s nice to have someone friendly and knowledgeable to work with you. Give us a call and find out how we can help.

Real Estate

Buying or selling your home is the largest financial transaction most of us will make in our lives and it’s only natural that you would want someone to help you with the process. From the beginning of the process, through putting the key in the door, we’re here to help, often for one affordable flat-fee. Gerrit is also registered with Brookfield Global Relocation Services and as such is able to help with corporate and government moves.

Corporate/Commercial, Small Business, and Non-Profit

Whether you’re looking to start a business, or need help along the way, we’re here to help. From business registration and regulatory hurdles, to small claim help for fee recovery or defence, let us take the guess work out of the process so that you can concentrate on doing what you do best.
Wolseley Law is, at it’s heart, a community business. If you’re a non-profit and are having an issue, want to become a registered charity, or just looking to plan, come in or give us a call and we will do everything that we can to make things easy and affordable, or find you the right expert to provide the quality service you deserve.

Litigation

Community civil litigation can cover so many things: consumer protection, an administrative tribunal, wrongful dismissal, an online copyright infringement notice, or a dispute with a neighbour.

We will take a look at your issue and present as many options as we can to try to find a fair, and cost-effective solution to your matter. Whether it’s mediation, a free government agency, or a statement of claim we will guide you through it.

Similarly, if you’ve been served with a lawsuit, come in and see us at the earliest possible date. Effective negotiation can resolve many issues before they get out of hand, and should you not be able to reach a settlement, we can stand up on your behalf.

Family Law

Approximately 40% of people with a family law issue either start, or end up representing themselves. Whether for an adoption, a divorce, seeking or terminating child support, or countless other family law matters, being left to find your own way through the court system can be a frustrating process where things can get missed and can take far longer than anticipated.

We offer both full service and, when appropriate, unbundled and flat-fee options to help you find ways to balance legal costs with appropriate legal service.
