Barbara Janzen

Hamilton Duncan adds Barbara Janzen, a former Vancouver lawyer with 20 years of estate planning and administration experience, to their growing Surrey law firm.

Surrey, BC – Hamilton Duncan (https://www.hdas.com/) is proud to welcome Barbara Janzen as a new lawyer with the firm.  Barbara was most recently a partner at a well-respected downtown Vancouver firm and has been practicing in the areas of estate and trust administration and estate planning for more than 20 years.  She has extensive experience in all areas of estate administration, including informing executors and trustees of their duties and powers, obtaining grants of probate and administration, and dealing with multi-jurisdictional issues, such as non-Canadian beneficiaries and foreign assets.

Barbara has joined the firm to assist with the growing demand for quality estate and trust law services.  She looks forward to assisting clients by crafting estate plans which meet their unique circumstances, including the preparation of wills, powers of attorney, health care representation agreements and domestic trusts, such as alter ego, joint partner and family trusts.

Greg Palm, managing partner, said, “Hamilton Duncan is already respected for its estate law work, and particularly for estate and trust litigation, and building up out estate planning and administration group was the next logical step. Adding Barbara to our team certainly does that.  She brings a tremendous amount of experience and a proven track record to the firm.  Her passion and leadership will build on our already strong foundation, and we look forward to seeing her experience at work for our clients.”
