As an estate litigator, Charlie has been involved in many types of estate litigation matters at DSF. Some of them include will challenge matters, testator capacity matters, power of attorney disputes, removal of estate trustees and many others. His approach to litigation is suited for the often emotional and difficult nature of estate disputes as he recognizes the crucial importance of this particular time in his client’s lives. By constantly looking for innovative strategies to engage with, Charlie is able to minimize the pressure of litigation while still reaching favourable results for his clients with the least impact on their relationships. This mindfulness has helped Charlie stay ahead of his competitors.
