Wills, Estates & Power of Attorney

Mack Lawyers


Our firm has been servicing the Durham Region in the area of wills and estates for over 40 years. Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of the complex laws surrounding wills and estates and we apply that knowledge to ensure that our clients wishes are achieved when it comes to their estates.

Writing a will is an important step in estate planning. A will is a legal document that states how you want your personal assets to be distributed after you pass away. It sets out the individuals or organizations that you want to benefit from your estate and appoints an executor to manage the transfer of your assets.

We will work with you to create a will that reflects your wishes and helps ensure that your estate is managed however you desire. We will help you include any special instructions or conditions you may have, such as if you have minor children, corporate interests or a complicated financial position.


When a person passes on in Ontario there are several important legal and financial steps that need to be taken. Here is a short list of the ways we can help you carry out your duties as the executor when your loved one dies.

  • This may involve selling property, paying off debts, transferring assets to beneficiaries and handling any outstanding taxes and legal matters.
  • Assisting in preparing and filing the application for Probate to declare the will valid.

Power of Attorney – Financial and Health

Power of attorney Is a legal document that allows an individual to act on behalf of another person (principal) in certain legal or financial matters. In Ontario, there are two types of power of attorney, General Power of Attorney and Power of Attorney for Personal Care.

General Power of Attorney gives the agent broad powers to manage the principal’s financial affairs. This can include tasks such as paying bills, managing investments, and making decisions about property and personal affairs. A general power of attorney also continues even If the principal becomes incapacitated.

Power of Attorney for Personal Care gives another person the authority to make personal care decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. The appointed person can make decisions about the individual’s medical treatment, housing, and other pertinent care decisions.
