New VOCM radio show - The Law Show - starting April 6, 2017

Starting on April 6, 2017, you'll be able to listen to me on a weekly radio show. I will be co-hosting The Law Show along with Chelsea Kennedy, our Executive Practice Co-ordinator. For an hour each Thursday, we'll talk about legal topics such as probate or choosing an executor, and all the other subjects that are useful to executors, beneficiaries, and the general public.

We'll also cover topics about working with lawyers and using the legal system.

You can catch us on VOCM 590 am each Thursday at 11:30 a.m. (Newfoundland time). You will also be able to listen live by going to After airing, the shows will be available on VOCM's webpage to listen to later.

We're excited and proud to be working with this leading station! They have been so welcoming and so professional, we know we're in good hands.

Chelsea and I will be on every show and from time to time we will have guests on with us. The guests will usually be experts in the topic we're covering who will be on board to offer insights and information. Occasionally the guest will be someone with an estate-related story to tell. We have issued a few invitations already, but we welcome suggestions for guests. Email us at if you have a suggestion for a guest you'd like to hear.

We also want to hear your questions. If you'd like your question covered on our show, email us at If it's a simple question, it could be answered quickly, though we expect the more complicated questions could take as much as one whole show to cover. Anything related to wills, estates, probate, trusts, elder law, etc is welcome. Once the show is on the air, we will be offering a prize to anyone who emails a question that is used on the air.

I'll keep you up to date as the first broadcast date approaches. And as always, feedback is welcome.


  1. Hi, my husband inherited a piece of Real Estate Property.Am I (wife) entitled to any of this Property?

    1. Under what circumstances? Divorce? Death?

      As a general rule, you have no right to it while he is alive, such as on divorce.

      Depending on which province you live in, you might have rights to it if it's the matrimonial home in which you both live.

      When he passes away, the property will form part of his estate. You have the right to be adequately supported by his estate. While this does not mean you specifically have rights to that piece of land, neither is that piece of land excluded. So although it seems a simple question, there is no simple answer.
