 Why Executors Are Beyond Satisfied
With Our Services!

" Hi Carolyn, on behalf of my family, thank you so much for all your support during a very difficult and trying time after losing our mother. At first, we did not know what needed to be done and it was really overwhelming for all of us. Thankfully, I heard your ad on the radio and checked out your website to find out what a Probate Coach did. It was definitely the right decision to contact you. Right from the start, you were thorough, answered our questions and your rates were very reasonable. We greatly appreciate your professional, caring and personal approach helping us understand the necessary steps required to file for probate in Alberta. I was impressed that you took the time to review and ensure our documents were completed correctly before we filed. You were always available when we had questions and when you didn't know the answer, you would do the research and get back to us. This was especially important for when we had to file for Resealing of Probate in BC, as well. Thank you again for your assistance, we would definitely recommend your services to others.Take care,"
S.O. (Calgary)   

"My husband found Probate Coach online. Carolyn Lawrence (Probate Coach) met with us promptly and presented as extremely professional. She was very well organized and explained the process of filing for probate in a clear, and easy to understand manner. Ms. Lawrence walked me through step-by-step and answered emails and phone calls quickly when I had questions or needed clarification. Due to her excellent and thorough instruction, I filed the probate for my mother’s estate effortlessly. It was approved by the Court in the beginning of December with no issues. I would highly recommend the Probate Coach (Carolyn Lawrence) for anyone dealing with a recent passing of a loved one. She was kind, efficient, trustworthy, and incredibly less expensive than using a law firm. Thank you Carolyn, for making a difficult time so much easier.
