Family Law & Mediation
The decision to end your marriage or address issues involving child custody, access, support, property and debt division all require an experienced and trusted advisor. Most clients prefer to settle their issues out of court and that approach is a strategy we support. It’s faster, less costly and provides you with a little more control over the proceedings. If however, the course of your matter leads all the way to court, we are experienced and capable of representing you to ensure you receive the best possible outcome for you and your children.

Wills, Estates & Trusts
Becker & Company offers comprehensive legal services designed to put your personal matters and preferences in legal order and, in doing so, protect your estate. Personal estate planning, for most people, requires three different documents: a will, an Enduring Power of Attorney and a Representation Agreement.
A Will is often considered the most important document you will create in your lifetime. A properly prepared Will ensures that your estate will be distributed according to your wishes. Without such a document, your family may be left to deal with complicated legal issues in addition to managing their grief. When you have a Will prepared, you will name a person or company as the “executor”. This executor gathers the estate, pays any of your outstanding debts and taxes, and divides what is remaining among the beneficiaries. It is important to choose an executor that you trust. You may choose more than one executor who will act together as co-executors. You can also choose an alternate executor.
An Enduring Power of Attorney is an important document which allows one or more persons to manage your financial affair while you are alive. An “enduring” form of Power of Attorney (POA) allows this authority to survive any loss of mental capacity by the person giving the POA (ie. injury, disease, or dementia).
A Representation Agreement is a legal document which creates a contract between you and a representative allowing them to manage your legal, financial, health, and personal care matters if you are unable to do so.
These services are now offered at both our Pitt Meadows offices.
