I am the founding partner of Bell Alliance LLP. I practice primarily in the area of estate planning but continue to assist many clients on real estate transactions. I am committed to helping my clients. I founded the firm over 15 years ago as a community focused firm with a commitment to service based on the standard of “how would you like your mother to be treated”.

I am committed to family and community. I have been an active supporter and participant in many charities. Recently I completed my eight-year term on the Board of the Arts Club and continue to support the Arts Club as live theatre is a significant contributor to a vibrant community. My focus currently is on housing. I am on the Board as Chair of Small Housing B.C. and World Housing. The former focuses on creating affordability in communities throughout British Columbia. The later focuses on housing internationally for the poorest of the poor. I have also built the Bell Family Compound where four generations of my family have independent units on a single property through an innovative co-ownership model.

I help individuals and families plan for their futures both in estate and personal planning and real estate. For estate and personal planning I work to create solutions that will aid families in dealing with the loss of a loved one or one who needs care or assistance in managing day to day matters. And where possible I create tax efficient solutions—everyone loves minimizing taxes. I take helping clients very personally.

I have helped clients with:

  • Wills
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Representation Agreements
  • Alter Ego and Joint Partner Trusts
  • Joint tenancy/Bare Trust structures
  • Probate applications
  • Acting an Executor
  • Real estate purchases, sales and refinances
