Last Will and Testament
Your Last Will and Testament is a legal document that outlines how your assets should be divided and your estate should be dealt with upon your death. It lets you decide who receives your property and possessions and name a trustee (or executor) to manage your final affairs giving you the assurance that your final wishes will be carried out as you intended. Surveys show most Canadian adults (over 55%) do not have signed, legally binding Wills. A Will created by Axess Law is witnessed by a lawyer, shared with your estate trustees, trusted next-of-kin, and stored in a safety deposit box. A copy will also be placed with a local wills registry, where it is easy to locate when needed.
Power of Attorney
A Will can only become valid once you pass away. For instances where you become unable to make vital decisions or understand its consequences because of an illness, injury, or age, Axess Law will draft you a Power of Attorney (POA). It is a document you draft voluntarily with the help of our Wills and Estate lawyers. A POA gives others legal authority to act on your behalf when you are unable to care for yourself or want help because of age or infirmity.

What Our Customers Say About Us
We worked with Jaz for setting up our Will and POA. He is very knowledgeable and answered our questions with patience and understanding.
It was a smooth and painless experience. Very quick and to the point. Would highly recommend this to anyone needing a will or estate planning.
My brother and I got our wills done during the free Oct Will month. We got excellent service by Pratheeb Uthayakumar, Marc Marcos and Nicole. Very professional, efficient and responsive. I recommend them to all. Thank you Axess.
This was such a no brainer for us. We did 2 wills and Powers of Attorney in under 2 hours. Of course it was relatively basic as they do not do foreign and tax and estate work.
My wife and I utilized Axess Law for creating our mirror wills and POAs. The process was extremely efficient and simple. Being able to do the initial meeting virtually is also extremely helpful. The entire meeting took just over an hour for both my wife and I. It was then about another 30 minutes to actually go to their office to get the documents signed and witnessed.
We are rated 4.8/5 based on 1,475 reviews.
Yes. Axess Law attorneys draft your Will to ensure important financial and legal steps that protect your family and estate aren’t left out. Our lawyers witness your Will and give you copies for estate trustees, safety deposit boxes, and trusted next-of-kin. We place a copy with a local wills registry, where it is easy to locate when needed.
Yes, in fact, we recommend you give it serious consideration. Passing assets outside your personal Will reduces estate taxes and ensures beneficiaries have financial resources much sooner than by going through Ontario probate court.
Mirror Wills are separate Wills made by spouses that include reciprocal terms. These state the same executors, beneficiaries, and alternate distribution plans (where your estates go if you and your spouse die at the same time).
However, you can change your Will at any time, with or without your spouse knowing, such as if you divorce or your spouse dies. That just means your Will no longer mirrors your spouse’s.
