Ottawa Will and Estate Lawyer Chris Clermont helps individuals, couples and families in Ottawa and neighboring communities draft wills and establish powers of attorney for both personal care and property.
Wills and Power of Attorney are very important documents that almost everyone should have.
Mortality is not something only for the aged to contemplate. Death is something we all face. Additionally, the unfortunate reality of life is that many of us will face infirmity due to accident, disease or illness and be rendered unable to make informed decisions regarding one’s day-to-day life, health care and finances.
A will allows you to dictate how you wish your assets to be distributed upon your death.
A power of attorney for personal care allows you to appoint a person you trust to make decisions in your best interest regarding your personal care when you are no longer able to do so.
A power of attorney for property allows you to appoint a person you trust to make decisions in your best interest regarding your finances and other property when you are no longer able to do so.
From the simple, straightforward and modest to the very advanced and complex, Chris can draft wills, POA’s and estate plans to address your every wish and meet every need.
