Karon C. Bales
Karon is a founding partner of Bales Beall LLP whose experience speaks for itself. Her practice is centred on family law, wills and estate issues. Her experience in trial and appellate advocacy in family law and estate matters is extensive, particularly with those involving partnerships, business corporations and commercial issues. Karon also provides sound guidance with estate administration and planning, domestic and off-shore trusts, and succession planning for owners of family businesses. Her expertise also extends to mediation, as she’s been conducting private mediations for over 10 years in the areas of family law and estate litigation – most often for cases where those two areas of the law intersect. Karon’s passion and dedication shine through her work. She’s been listed in Best Lawyers – Canada (the oldest and most respected peer review publication in the legal profession) since 2006.
