By-Your-Side Probate Services - Alberta's #1 Probate Coach

My Dad passed away this past Spring and one of his wishes was for me,as Executrix, to try to get everything done as quickly and inexpensively as possible.  I jumped on Google to see what settling his Estate would involve.  I was lucky to find By Your Side Probate Coach and immediately called Carolyn Lawrence to ask for her help.  She was really well informed and gave me rates and advice.

Once we started the paperwork, it went quickly and easily.  All of the information was gathered by phone calls and email.  I was able to meet with her and her team to pick up the final draft.  It was a quick trip to the Court House to file the papers and wait for the Grant.  The wait was just under 3 months and we had our Grant.

My Dad always said that if you take care with the small details - then there are no big ones.  Carolyn makes sure that every detail is matter how small.We feel that she was well worth the  fee that she charged as a Lawyer would have been a huge amount and it would have taken a lot longer to get it done.
Thank you to Carolyn and her team.
