Who we are 

 DORAN LAW specializes primarily in trusts and estates law, tax and estate planning, business succession, incapacity planning, elder law and the prevention of discrimination, abuse and financial exploitation. We work closely with our clients to identify and facilitate their overall objectives. We are sensitive to clients' individual priorities and to the emotional complexities that can often underlie both estate and elder law issues.


As a boutique practice, we are personally engaged and accessible. We offer compassionate guidance, professional service and integrated solutions to respond to clients' unique needs and to ensure that your interests, and those of loved ones and future generations, are addressed and protected.  

What we do 

DORAN LAW offers a range of estate and trust legal services including trusts and estate planning, trust and estate administration, incapacity and special needs planning, and business succession planning. We also advise individuals, families and business owners on matters pertaining to fiduciary accounting, corporate reorganizations, will challenges, charitable giving, dependants' relief and guardianship applications.

From simple wills to complex trusts and corporate reorganizations, we can help to provide peace of mind in knowing that your property or business legacy is protected and your family properly cared for. Through careful analysis of your situation, we will devise effective strategies to ensure that your assets and legacy will be preserved and passed on to future generations with minimum cost and tax liability.

DORAN LAW also provides effective advocacy and legal support for clients and older individuals who may have experienced financial exploitation, abuse, or discrimination in areas such as housing, employment, and access to services. We counsel individuals and organizations with respect to elder law issues such as age or disability discrimination, financial exploitation, and substitute decision making. We strive to empower clients to make fully-informed decisions and to preserve their financial security, personal autonomy and overall quality of life.
