Area of Law: Real Estate Conveyancing
“Hello, I am sole practitioner in the area of residential real estate conveyancing with an office in Edmonton. I’m exploring the possibility of having a lawyer handle my files so that I can have a vacation of 3 to 4 weeks. The work would include being designated as an alternate responsible lawyer, issues cheques from my trust account, meeting clients to sign real estate documents at my office, advising clients with regards to any legal issues on the file, corresponding with other lawyers. A legal assistant would handle document preparation and the closings. You would likely not be required to attend at my office except for scheduled client meetings. There would be a small volume of work as this would occur during slow periods.”

Area of Law: Residential Real Estate Conveyancing
“Hello. I am a sole practitioner in the area of residential real estate conveyancing with an office in Edmonton. I am going on vacation from April 2, 2019 until April 18, 2019. I am looking for a lawyer to handle my files so that I can have a vacation. Very low volume. I need someone to check my mail and incoming matters and to handle any unexpected matters. I don’t have an assistant. I already have an alternate responsible lawyer who can issue cheques from my trust account – you just need to print the cheque for signing. You would not likely have to do anything – maybe 1-2 hours a day. I have a home office where you can work. I am suggesting $75/hr.”
