The Practitioner's Guide to Estate Practice in Ontario, 8th Edition provides practical, comprehensive and expert guidance on the day-to-day administration of estates and is the ideal reference manual for both experienced practitioners and lawyers who are new to the practice area.

Lawyers have long relied on The Practitioner's Guide to Estate Practice as a time-saving resource that offers useful direction on dealing with both contentious and non-contentious issues that can arise in the administration of estates.
