Divorce and Family Law
Protecting Alberta Families
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Kirk Montoute Dawson LLP is a firm of mediators and arbitrators. These legal processes give parties control over their path to settlement. Our impartial role is to guide participants to a point of commonality or to effect a binding agreement in response to presentations of evidence. As lawyers, we are trained in conflict resolution and have a sound basis of legal knowledge which we employ when making decisions.
We are equally committed to serving our clients’ needs when we represent them, as counsel, during an alternative dispute resolution process. Often, despite discussion of emotionally sensitive issues such as child custody and property division, separating spouses find the result of an alternative dispute resolution process is similar to what would have been achieved in court — without the excessive time, financial and personal cost.
Wills & Estates
Planning for asset distribution upon death and end-of-life care are deeply sensitive issues. Our lawyers help clients plan for their future needs and prepare legal documents that protect the value of their estates. We assist those with various property interests and advise blended families on their options.
You can rely on our team for comprehensive estate planning advice.
