When to Seek a Lawyer – Everything You Should Know Before Filing a Court Case of Any Kind 

Court cases aren’t won on promises. It is the skills of an attorney that decide and seal the fate of a court case. Choosing a lawyer precariously can, thus, have disastrous results. Experienced lawyers are professional, dedicated, fully aware of all kinds of laws – trust law, family law, as well as estate law – and, most importantly, they are not money making machines. They have a reputation to keep. Hence, they respect their job and treat every case as a new case instead of seeing every case as the same. 

This singular approach is very handy since personal attention helps in finding minute details that can otherwise go unnoticed. And, sometimes, such minute details end up making the entire difference. 

That said, this guide will take you through the different aspects of what is handled under all three kinds of laws in Canada – Trust Law, Family Law, and Estate Law. 

Trust Law

You can approach Trust Lawyers Litvack Dessureault LLP in any of the following cases. 

  • Matters concerning patriarchal property related to assets that are kept in the family trust. 
  • If your former spouse is claiming to be a beneficiary in the family’s trust. 
  • If you want to understand your holdings and rights in a trust deed. 
  • If you’re a member of a trust and a creditor is trying to force a judgment against the holdings of the trust. 

Family Law

You can approach a legal firm to represent the following cases under the family law of Canada. 

  • Seeking an urgent divorce on the grounds of abuse. 
  • Seeking a mutual divorce. 
  • Alimony settlement. 
  • Custody of the child.
  • Restraining order. 
  • Financial support for the child and/or spouse support. 

Estate Law

Commercial disputes can be very tricky. Hence, you can seek the help of a lawyer under the Estate law in all the following cases. 

  • If there’s a dispute regarding the assets/shares you hold in a company. 
  • If the matter involves changing a liquidator and your partner(s) agrees to it but you don’t. 
  • When the dispute arises due to the verification of letters. 

Estate lawyers can also help in making affidavits and writing a will or reviewing a company’s legal document. 

That much established, let’s now address the matter of how to find an attorney that’s worth your trust. 

The different ways in which that can be done are listed below. Have a look. 

  • Pay a lot of attention to what the previous clients have to say about the legal firm you’re planning to hire. 
  • Find out how long the firm has existed and what is their winning ratio.
  • Also, do your research about the firm before you meet a lawyer to get a basic idea about whether they’re as knowledgeable as they claim to be.
