Lawyers List

A list of legal professionals with disability experience.

Over the years Plan Institute has compiled a list of Lawyers and Trustees within BC that have been recommended to us by families.

The lawyers and trust companies on this list have varying degrees of experience regarding how disability may impact setting up your will and managing your trust. Some are more experienced than others and you should always ask them about their experience with disability. Any individual or firm mentioned in this list is purely for the benefit of the reader and does not constitute an endorsement by Plan Institute. It is Plan Institute’s policy that we do not and will not endorse any particular company. You should discuss any fees, disbursements or taxes that you will be charged with the professional you choose.

Also, if you would like some tips on what to ask when speaking to a lawyer, please see the questions to ask when searching for a lawyer document here.
