Probate Lawyers and Estate Administration in Toronto, Barrie & the GTA
It is not always easy to deal with the estate of a loved one who has recently passed. Despite While, at times, it can be an emotionally overwhelming process, it is essential that the estate be dealt with in a timely manner. To ease your burden and ensure the process is handled correctly, it is advisable to hire a probate and estate administration lawyer. At Rogerson Law Group, our lawyers bring skills and expertise to ensure your estate administration will be handled efficiently and in accordance with probate laws. We ensure the assets of the deceased are collated and then distributed based on the terms of their will.

We will also deal with creditors, helping to discharge the deceased person’s debts and relieving you of the stress that often comes with these dealings.
Our probate and estate administration lawyers are highly skilled when it comes to dealing with cross-border estate litigation or multi-jurisdictional cases.
