At Vanderburgh & Company, we are a well-established law firm with many years of experience. We are committed to helping you and offering you legal advice in many different areas of law, including:
From residential to commercial real estate, recreational properties to large farms, we have an abundance of experience representing clients buying and selling real estate – often some of the most significant transactions of a person’s life. If you are considering buying or selling real estate, our lawyers can help you understand all aspects of the process and make sure your interests are protected. We can also help you with the preparation and registration of easements, covenants, lot subdivisions and consolidations.
Our experienced family lawyers provide a full range of family law services including marriage and cohabitation agreements, separation agreements, advice regarding the division of family property, assistance with spousal support and child support, child custody, access and adoption, and divorce. We encourage our clients to settle their family disputes by negotiation and collaborative processes rather than going to Court, however when matters cannot be resolved out of Court, we provide effective representation to clients in both Supreme and Provincial Family Court.
Estate Planning & Probate
At Vanderburgh & Company we provide assistance to clients in all aspects of estate planning, including the preparation of wills, powers of attorney, and representation agreements. Our lawyers have experience in preparing estate plans that cover a broad spectrum – from the simple to the complex – and that clearly provide for our clients’ wishes. We would be happy to give you the peace of mind of knowing that those most important to you have been provided for. In the event of the passing of someone close to you, we are also able to assist in applying for probate or administration of an estate, so that you do not have to deal with what can be a confusing process during a difficult time.
Corporate & Commercial Law
The lawyers at Vanderburgh & Company regularly advise businesses both large and small on the advantages and disadvantages of the number of business structures that exist in British Columbia, from proprietorships, to general and limited partnerships, to corporations. We are also experienced in advising on corporate reorganizations and estate planning for family businesses, as well as buying and selling a business – whether through the purchase of assets or of company shares.
Whether it be a disagreement over a will, the handling of an estate, or the enforcement of your rights under a contract, our lawyers can effectively represent your interests in a wide variety of civil disputes. Seeking advice early on in the course of a civil matter can save you time, stress, and expense – all of which we are committed to doing when representing clients in civil suits.
If you have been charged with a criminal or quasi-criminal offence, it is in your best interests to have a defence lawyer assist you in navigating your way through the justice system. Our firm is committed to protecting clients’ rights and will work to ensure that your case is resolved in a fair and just manner.
