Preparing You For Your Future
Estate Lawyers in Calgary
As humans, we want to take care of our loved ones, have our affairs in order, prevent family disputes, and ensure that our wishes are respected. In fact, a life cycle of an estate begins with estate planning as someone becomes an adult.

When you face incapacity in your family, our estate lawyer will assist you with guardianship and trusteeship.

We contacted Anna for a Will and she replied the same day. She was upfront with her fee which is very competitive and explained on her website. She also provided an excellent questionnaire that helped us think about how we wanted the Will structured and prepare for the initial meeting. Anna does a great job of explaining the legal process of the Will and I would recommend Anna for anyone or couple looking to set up their Will.
We are very satisfied with the input Anna gave to help create comprehensive Wills, Letters of Direction , and Enduring Powers of Attorney. Pricing was as advertised and all were completed in a friendly, timely fashion.
Excellent service and great experience using Anna to help with updating my father's Will, Power of Attorney, and Personal Directive. Highly recommend using DLegal Law Office.
DLegal helped me a lot with all my probate issues when my husband passed away. I felt very comfortable with this firm and Anna, the lawyer retained. The whole process was a breeze and Anna went above and beyond! Thank you Anna!
Very professional and knowledgeable. Prompt to respond to questions. Booking and paying is easy/straightforward. Importantly, Anna is very pleasant and friendly -- I do not know many lawyers who can make designing a will a pleasant experience, but she actually made it fun. She's very good at explaining concepts in plain English while giving expert advice. Highly recommended!

Believe me the end results are great and you will not regret seeing Anna!
