Fees - Wills and Powers of Attorney

Prices quoted are for relatively standard Wills which do not necessitate more than a 60 minute consultation for a couple, or a 40 minute consultation for a single person. A standard Will does not involve sophisticated drafting. If sophisticated drafting is required, an extra charge based upon my hourly rate of $375 plus HST will be charged. This very rarely occurs.

There are extra charges for multiple Wills, Testamentary Trusts and Insurance Trusts for the extra time taken to explain them, draft them and for the value to the client. For multiple Wills the extra charge is $300 plus HST for one person, and $450 plus HST for two people. For Testamentary Trusts the extra charge is $400 plus HST for one person and $600 plus HST for two people.
