MacDonald, Gail Joan

Madam Justice Maisonville ordered Gail MacDonald, of Mission, BC, permanently prohibited and enjoined from drafting, revising or settling a document with respect to, or giving legal advice in relation to any probate or letters of administration or the estate of a deceased person for or in the expectation of a fee gain or reward, direct or indirect, unless otherwise authorized by the Notaries Act. The Law Society sought the injunction after learning that MacDonald had assisted in the probate of an estate and had impermissibly drafted wills that included trusts and life estates, all for a fee.
