About the Firm
At ASR Family and Estate Law, we work together as a team. We have a personal, responsive, client-focused attitude. We are efficient and our services are cost-effective. We are all dedicated to providing the best possible service to ensure that you, the client, obtain your desired result.
What are we known for?
We frequently address complex estate matters, as well as conflicts of law and cross-jurisdictional issues. We advise clients around the world, including in the United States, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, France, Denmark and Japan.
We are culturally competent.
What does it mean to be a culturally competent lawyer? Cultural competence is about understanding our clients, including their unique perspectives and histories. It is also about understanding that a legal culture exists and recognizing that sometimes that culture misinterprets behaviour because of incorrect assumptions. What one person thinks is common sense to another may make no sense at all. As advocates, it is our role to identify potential areas of misunderstanding and ensure our clients are understood. Cultural competence is about understanding your unique story and having the advocacy skills to tell your story in compelling language that is honest and faithful to you and that makes sense to a court.
What can you expect when working with us?
We listen to your story and get the facts straight. We thoroughly understand your case from every angle, and provide you with the best path forward. You can expect an honest assessment of the facts and the legal issues, a comprehensive strategy and detailed roadmap on how to achieve your goals. We will consider and apply a variety of conflict resolution techniques, including negotiation and mediation, to resolve your matter. If necessary, we will willingly proceed to trial to secure the best possible outcome.
You can expect transparency. We use technology to keep you informed of what is happening on your case without picking up the phone or sending an email. Our clients have access to information in real-time at a glance. You will know what we need from you, what the next steps are and what you can expect from us. You can connect with us in person or virtually. We use technology to work with clients in real-time on the same documents and to collaborate without being in the same room. If you are uncomfortable with technology, our team will meet you where you are, no matter how little you know about technology or how uncomfortable you are.
Why choose us?
We have created new law and stay on top of current research relevant to your issues.
We have a track record of resolving complicated, long-standing legal matters that other firms were unable to resolve. We work effectively with other members of the legal community, and our network of professionals, such as accountants, financial advisors, business valuators and psychologists, are at your disposal. As experts in the field, we continue to be consulted by the Federal Government and the courts on emerging issues and changes to the law. We often provide strategic advice to other lawyers on their files.
