Lawyer Barbro Stalbecker-Pountney joins our project to talk about death and dying, something that most people rarely do.

In the best possible of all worlds, we die gently, surrounded by loved ones who have the time and space to grieve because we have prearranged our last days, our funeral wishes assured by preplanning and an executor in place under proper last will and testament to handle our estate.  But it does not always go so easily.

During our podcast conversation we talk about:

-What are some of the issues that you see that could have been looked after better?

-Are there gaps to the planning process?

-Often the primary concern of many people is that they “die well”.  What are some of the steps one can take to ensure that this actually happens?

-What do you say to people who don’t want a ‘traditional’ funeral or perhaps not one at all?

 

Please listen to our podcast above:

 

We wish to thank Barbro Stalbecker-Pountney for joining our project and sharing her wisdom with us.

I’ve been practicing law for many years and in that time have acquired a wealth of experience and knowledge  that I use to inform the personalized service I offer to my clients.

I’m also a committed lifelong learner, building on my years of legal education by regularly participating in numerous professional development activities as well as courses to expand my personal horizons. In between supporting my clients, I dedicate time to helping others develop their legal knowledge through my teaching commitments at local institutions.

My Swedish and Canadian heritage is important to me and, as such, I dedicate time to supporting  both international and locally focused community organizations.

I take pride in offering accessible legal advice that uses plain language and ensures my clients fully understand legal concepts and terminology. If you have a legal issue or concern, I want to help you. Contact me . I’ll be happy to answer your questions and I promise I won’t baffle you with legal jargon.

How I Can Help You

Less stress – a preventative approach to legal services.


Many people assume that a lawyer is someone to be contacted only when a problem arises or they try to save money by seeking legal help from do-it-yourself kits or the internet. In fact, proactively seeking personalised legal advice from a licensed, qualified and experienced lawyer can actually prevent stressful and costly problems from occurring in the first place. Early investment in legal expertise can actually save you time, hassle and expense.

I want to help you avoid having to deal with a problem and, instead support you in creating the legacy, organization, business or relationship that will bring you and the people you care about satisfaction, not stress.
