Who We Are

Wills + Estates Professionals

Our Mission

At Laredo Law, we aim to be much more than legal advisors on your most important assets.

About Us

Lisa Laredo is the founder and principal at Laredo Law, where she has devoted her practice to the preparation of wills and the administration of estates.

Over almost two decades, Lisa has guided countless clients through some of the most sensitive and emotionally turbulent periods of their lives, earning a reputation for sophisticated and innovative counsel delivered in a uniquely personable and compassionate style. 

After graduating from the University of Windsor’s Faculty of Law in 2004, Lisa honed her advocacy skills at a criminal law firm in Toronto, before broadening her horizons – both legally and geographically speaking – practising structured finance, asset finance and international law in the German office of a global law firm.  

But it was only when she returned to Canada in 2007 that Lisa found her true calling, helping individuals with every aspect of their estate plans. And she has not looked back since, establishing Laredo Law as a firm of choice for ordinary Torontonians seeking tailored legal assistance for the protection of their legacies. 

For much of that time, Lisa also acted for clients in a variety of real estate law matters, including family home purchases, commercial transactions and refinancings. Although she has moved on from closing real estate deals on a day-to-day basis, Lisa carries the experience from 15 years of navigating these complex and intricate processes into her estate and succession planning work, where property issues often play a prominent role. 

Outside the office, Lisa also plays an active role in the legal community, as a member of the Canadian Bar Association, the Ontario Bar Association, the Law Society of Ontario and the Estate Planning Council of Canada. In addition, she recently obtained certification from STEP Canada via its coveted Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP) designation.  

As well as feeding her own constant hunger for further education through additional certifications, Lisa welcomes any opportunity to share her own legal wisdom with both her professional colleagues and the wider public. She regularly teaches accredited programs for lawyers, contributes to legal journals and speaks with a variety of news outlets and print media publications.

Let's acknowledge that having a Last Will & Testament drawn up isn't easy, but Lisa Laredo of Laredo Law makes it easier. Her vast experience is very useful in pointing out eventualities that one had not considered. After singing on the dotted line, one feels great peace of mind, knowing that all the i's have been dotted and all the t's crossed.

I highly recommend Laredo Law. Lisa Laredo is an excellent and knowledgable lawyer in matters of real-estate and personal estate law. She guided me through a very challenging process after the death of a loved one, and helped me obtain all the necessary legal paperwork required to settle the estate. Lisa is kind, empathetic and a consummate professional at all times. She is exceptionally meticulous and her attention to detail is admirable. Lisa has an incredible team of effective communicators who kept me well informed of matters pertaining to my circumstances. I am forever grateful to Lisa for assisting me during a very difficult time in my life. Thank you!

Having met Lisa and worked with her as my lawyer, she is the kind of professional we always want to meet. Lisa is a person who combines so many admirable qualities. But what's most important to me is that she combines capability, a sense of humour (lets face it, life IS funny), and a very sincere understanding of decency and an obvious care for her clients.

Lisa is a top notch lawyer and always goes the extra mile for her clients! I have used Lisa and her team's services for three real estate transactions in Toronto and cottage country and they did everything A+. They adapted well to the pandemic with touchless service and zoom signing of documents so no anxiety at all! Highly recommend!

We were introduced to Lisa a couple of years ago through our real estate agent. Since then, Lisa has been by our side, helping us purchase two properties, create a Will, real estate refinance, and change property status. She is down to earth and makes you feel very comfortable. Every time we have worked with Lisa, she takes her time and simplifies the process using plain English to ensure we truly understand. She has empowered us to take the next steps towards our future. Having worked with other lawyers in the past, I want to compliment Lisa on her meticulous attention to detail. Nothing is missed in her process, and her team communicates well, keeping you informed. Thanks Lisa and team for making our process efficient as always, we'll see you again soon for our next investment property.

I was very happy working with Lisa to buy my first home. She extremely thorough going through the contract, pointing out any potential issues, and negotiating with the seller's team. I felt comfortable knowing she had my back during this process.
