From Canadian Lawyer
Bruce Hallsor, managing partner at Crease Harman LLP in Vancouver, says many of his clients are concerned with their ability to prevent an end-of-life scenario in which they languish in an institution, suffering for a long period of time with no quality of life and no hope for recovery.
“They want to be able to have control over that,” he says. “Obviously, as lawyers, we’re always cognizant of people with disabilities, especially mental disabilities and how much capacity they have to make those choices. I think most estate lawyers will have encountered situations where grandma’s got a lot of money, and the next generation wants the money more than they want grandma.”
