Legal Services

Offered By Our Halifax lawyers


Family Law - Halifax Lawyer

We offer “pay-as-you-go” and “flat fee” services.

Wills & Estates - Halifax Lawyer

One wrong word or even a missing signature can be the difference in the way a Will can be perceived. This is why it is highly important to speak with a Wills & Estates lawyer.

Employment Law - Halifax Lawyer

When you are presented with a new employment contract, having an employment lawyer review it can make a lot of sense because they can make sure you aren’t leaving anything on the table. We recommend an employment lawyer who can help ensure the severance-termination provisions are adequate. 

Their legal team can also assist you if you are the one preparing the contract, as well as in workplace investigations and arbitrations.

Probate Lawyer

Following the passing of an individual, the Will might necessitate submission for probate, especially when dealing with financial institutions like banks or investment companies. Such entities typically require the probate registry’s legal validation before releasing funds to the executor or personal representative designated in the Will. With our skilled probate lawyers by your side, you can navigate these procedures seamlessly.

I would highly recommend Brookshire Law Office for their professionalism, calm and customer focused approach. My counsel told me their goal as a lawyer is to attain the best result at the lowest cost to the client, I believe from my outcome the team has done that and more. In the future should I ever need any further legal advice, Brookshire Law Office will be the first place I call.

I was proud to be represented by Brookshire Law Office where integrity and dedication is held in high regard. Not easily distracted from “noise”, professionalism is top level and always in play while still leaving room for compassion. A firm that recognizes the importance of communication and not only welcomes it, but is effective at it. I will be returning for any legal needs in the future with complete confidence and would recommend the firm without pause. A special thank you to both Shawn and Jeffrey.

The fact that we find ourselves in a position where we must seek legal council is never a pleasant time in our lives. However if that time does come I would highly recommend Shawn Scott and the staff at Brookshire Law . He has a way of calming the emotions and getting to the reality of the situation. Not always what you want to hear but exactly what you need to know. Thanks Shawn and Barb for your professionalism and supplying me with everything I needed.
