Getting Around to Your Will: What to Expect When You Visit a Law Firm

Nathan Kaulback

For many Nova Scotians, the restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a newfound abundance of time to tackle the projects and tasks that have been sitting at the bottom of our to-do lists for some years.

For many people, the first time they visit a lawyer will be to create their Last Will and Testament. Not only might you be unfamiliar with what you should be thinking about or what you need to bring, you might also not know about the process of hiring a lawyer.

Update on Burnside Law Group’s Status re: Provincial State of Emergency

Consistent with the provincial state of emergency issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Burnside Law Group is announcing its intent to maintain a skeletal staffing of its office. This will remain until the passing of this public health emergency.

During this time, the majority of our staff will be working remotely to maintain office operations and client needs. Among other measures, this will include hosting communications via video and telephone conferencing with our clients. However, one lawyer will remain on-site during our normal business hours to handle any matters which require a lawyer to be physically present.

In this fashion, we will remain responsive to our clients’ needs. Burnside Law Group is confident that in making these adjustments, our normal dedication to our clientele will remain unchanged.

We look forward to resuming normal business operations following the eventual passing of the current public health emergency. In the meantime, we hope that all of our clients and colleagues remain safe and healthy during these times.
