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.

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.
