About Shanti Estate Law

The inspiration to open Shanti Estate Law struck after attending the Global Meditation for Peace hosted by Deepak Chopra in Toronto in 2014. I realized that all of my previous trainings and personal experiences would allow me to provide a unique level of compassionate service in the area of Wills and Estate law. And so, Shanti Estate Law began in early 2015.


About Amelia Manera

Hello! I'm Amelia and here's a little bit about me and what motivates me in my work.

I believe that making a Will is an act of cherishing yourself and your loved ones. 

Making a Will can bring you peace of mind because you’ve taken care of your loved ones. Having a Will in place will relieve your loved ones of the added burden of administering an intestate estate while grieving their loss. Having a Will in place can help you live life more fully by alleviating the stress and worry caused by not having a plan in place.

and a little more

I’ve often been called an “old soul”. 

I enjoy making beautiful things, whether it be a meal, a toque, or the veil I wore at my wedding. 

I love spending time with my loved ones. I love play dates and experiencing the world with my awesome nieces and nephew. 

I love taking our rescued beagle, Hank, out for walks. 

And I love sharing this adventure we call life with my amazing husband, my Love.


It can be wonderful to have reminders of our loved ones close-by. Two reminders for me are the flute and ladybugs. In her final years, Evelyn was an aspiring flutist (her favourite piece to play was Pachelbel's Canon) and in her youth she had a plastic ladybug jar that she always overfilled with grass (much to our amusement).

From personal experience

In July of 2004, my sister, Evelyn, died in a traffic accident. She died intestate, which means she didn't have a Will. And while the value of her estate was modest at the age of 21, I remember seeing the added stress and grief this caused my parents as they administered her estate. 

And so, many years later after graduating from law school, I decided to use my personal experience and my legal degree to provide a unique level of compassionate service in the areas of Wills and Estate Administration.
