We provide a full service for all Real Estate transactions including Migrations, which is converting the registration over from a main base paper system to an electronic on line numbered system; whether it be existing Residential, New Construction, Vacant Land, Building Contracts, Condominiums or Mini Homes, as well as Refinancing with Mortgage Companies.
We have a full time staff devoted to dealing exclusively with Real Estate matters and will guide you through from the very beginning of the process to the final step.
We take great care to ensure that once an Agreement is received at our office, you are contacted within a couple of days to set an appointment to come in and review the entire home buying or home selling process and guide you through each step.
We are passionate about ensuring you get everything you are entitled to following an accident. This can be a confusing time and insurance companies may attempt to get you to settle your claim quickly. We urge you to obtain legal advice before you agree to anything regarding your claim.
We want to ensure you we represent the accident victims only, and do not represent the large insurance corporations. We fight for clients involved in motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, and assaults by other persons as well as attacks by pets owned by third parties.
Our experienced lawyers will deal with the insurance companies for you, will contact your treating professionals, and conduct legal research to ensure you receive a settlement or award commensurate with your injuries and how those injuries have impacted your life.

We have a department totally dedicated to Wills, Estates, Trusts and Estate Litigation. It is our experience that many people in need of guidance surrounding Wills, Estates and Trusts may have disability issues and we regularly do home visits, or visits at nursing homes and hospitals.
We always start the process with an initial appointment, when we will discuss the following: Will preparation, Power of Attorney, and Health Care Directives. Once we have had a discussion surrounding your Estate plan the documentation is then prepared and an appointment set to come back for the signing of the documents.
Unhappily, there are occasions when disputes arise surrounding the Execution of Wills, distribution of Estates and there is an Estate challenge. We have lawyers on staff, who are experienced in Estate Litigation and will provide representation in the Litigation process if this should become necessary.
We have an experienced team of family law lawyers with the necessary knowledge and compassion to assist clients as they navigate their way through what are often delicate family law issues.
We are able to offer advice in such areas as:
Some of the services we provide include, settlement negotiations, preparation of separation agreements, cohabitation agreements and marriage contracts, and preparation of documents for both uncontested or contested family court matters.
Our goal is to represent our clients in disputes that may require court intervention in multiple areas of law, including:
Our lawyers take a commonsense approach and are cognizant of the fact that the ultimate goal is for our clients to leave the process with as much money in their pocket as possible. To that end, our lawyers are skilled negotiators who will attempt to settle your matter without the necessity of incurring the costs of an expensive trial. Sometimes, however, trial is not avoidable and our lawyers have experience at every level of court in Nova Scotia and would enjoy the opportunity assist you with your matter.
