Wills Variation Experience


As BC estate lawyers know, the law with wills variation claims is continually being refined. As a firm which has done wills variation claims for decades, as opposed to lawyers who now call themselves estate lawyers because their ICBC work is ending, Richter Trial Lawyers can advise you about the latest updates to wills variation law. Back in 1994, the Supreme Court of Canada overturned a British Columbia Court of Appeal decision overturning a British Columbia Supreme Court decision in wills variation. This decision remains the leading authority for judges deciding wills variation claims: Tataryn v. Tataryn, 1992 CanLII 871 (BCCA) and Tataryn v. Tataryn, 1994 CanLII 51 (SCC). This decision is continually being applied to new situations.

Pictured above is Mount Waddington, the highest peak that lies entirely within British Columbia. It is also called Mystery Mountain and lies halfway between Pemberton and Bella Coola. Part of the mystery is its inaccessibility except by boat, helicopter and/or plane.

As BC estate lawyers, Richter Trial Lawyers tries to take the mystery out of wills variation claims. We would like to update our blog every month with the newest wills variation cases, but work demands often prevent this from happening. We invite you to contact our office or fill out our contact form if you would like to consult about your wills variation claim. John M. Richter
