I would like to take this opportunity to say that the quality of service offered by Avery Law Office was excellent. Denese helped me understand the intricacies of estate planning for my future and completed my documents quickly, accurately and with great care. The service by Denese and her team was professional yet very friendly and they fulfilled my expectations in all aspects. I highly recommend Avery Law Office.”
– Diane Owens, British Columbia

After 2 rather poor experiences in the past having wills and powers of attorney done, I decided to give Denese a try. I was so glad I did!! She is very thorough, thinks of everything, yet does not push you to do anything you don’t want to do. Best of all, she has the ability to listen, to understand where you are coming from, and to work with you. Her rates are reasonable considering what all she does for you. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.”

“Denese Espeut-Post and her team acted on my behalf in connection with my recent home purchase. I was very satisfied with their friendly and courteous service, their knowledge and efficient service. My experience at their office was fast, no waiting time. The office was pleasant, clean and made information and brochures readily available. Thank you so much.”
