SPECIALIZING IN APPLICATION WORK FOR
GRANT OF PROBATE
OR GRANT OF ADMINISTRATION.
Fine out why Executors team-up with us!
"I discovered The Probate Coach one day while driving by a
bus stop which advertised her services. I was thinking about hiring a lawyer to
probate my mother’s estate, however, I found working with Carolyn an enjoyable
experience because she is professional, efficient and knowledgeable. She has a
thorough understanding of the probate process and a determined attitude in quickly
completing a probate application for submission to the court. Her costs are
also lower than that of a lawyer.
Our particular probate application had a few complexities
which were easily handled by Carolyn and if I had any questions, Carolyn
quickly answered them.
I have recently recommended Carolyn to one other person who
needed to probate a will and his experience like mine was also excellent.
For those who need to probate a Will, I highly recommend hiring
Thank you Carolyn for all that you have done for us."
"I found Carolyn’s “By-Your-Side” probate service online and she was also referred to me by a friend. My mother’s estate, while substantial in monetary terms, was very simple - four beneficiaries, no properties to sell, etc. While many lawyers would have charged me a percentage of the estate, Carolyn charges on an hourly basis.
The paperwork got done within a week. Carolyn is very knowledgeable about all the forms and made it easy for me to understand. She was always available whenever I needed to reach her. Two weeks after the papers were filed in Medicine Hat, I had the grant of probate, with no revisions to the application. It couldn’t have gone any better. I heartedly recommend her services! "
"Carolyn did a fantastic job of clarifying the probate process. She walked us through every step and made sure that we got it right the first time. Her services were very professional and at a fraction of the cost of what a law firm would have charged for the same service. I would highly recommend her services to anyone."
"Carolyn, on behalf of my family and I, we would like to thank you for helping us thru a very stressful time. You are wonderfully knowledgeable and efficient. Your fee is extremely reasonable and our experience was very positive all the way around. Everything went smoothly and we are very happy. Thanks again."
