It happens in everyone’s life at some point. Whether during the thrill (and stress) of buying or selling a home, a change in marital status or brush with the law, we all need a lawyer at some point. Getting accurate and skilled legal advice is important. You want an experienced hand, combined with people who love the work and who 

are continually learning, upgrading and growing. 

Whether you are suing or being sued, divorcing, buying or selling real estate, a personal injury or matters of wills and estates, Ives Burger Barristers & Solicitors has a wide range of expertise and accomplishment. 

“We have a broad depth of experience which allows us to assist a broad range of clients,” says Paul Ives, one of three partners. Which is one reason Ives Burger clients include large corporations, small business entrepreneurs, families and individuals. “We’ve developed a reputation of quality, 

professional service,” says Paul, “and pride ourselves on providing prompt and cost-effective legal advice.” 

The reason for this, says Paul, varies from good people working together as a team, to utilizing the most advanced technology and experienced staff available in order to meet the needs of clientele. 

“Our clients needs are ever changing,” offers Mark Burger. “Sometimes it’s a client who needs ‘papering’ for their corporation. Later in life, as things evolve, they are selling their house, 

dealing with divorce or charged with executing an estate. We want to be there for them no matter what they need.”
