ABOUT KRAWCHENKO LAW
Augustine Krawchenko, lawyer and owner at Krawchenko Law has a passion for practicing law that runs deep in her blood. Her firm, like Lamont Law, was founded by her father, John Krawchenko, who is a
sitting judge and was a successful lawyer.
Much like Erica Lamont, Augustine learned how to run the “family business” by working for her father as his receptionist, assistant and ultimately his associate lawyer before she took over the firm. Augustine provides a host of professional services including Wills and Powers of Attorney. She also
practices in Estate Administration, Real Estate and general consultations.
Augustine loves to travel and explore the world. She gained appreciation for overseas travel while
serving in the Canadian Armed Forces (Navy). She studied international law in Leicester, England.

MAKE A WILL EVENT – MARCH 2023
Do you own assets?
Do you know what happens to your estate after you pass away?
Have you protected your spouse and/or children in the event of an untimely death?
These are difficult topics to discuss and many prefer to procrastinate when it comes to creating a Will
and Power of Attorney.
A Will ensures your property and assets are divided pursuant to your wishes after you pass away.
A Power of Attorney for Property allows you to appoint someone you trust (and of your choosing) to
act on your behalf for anything relating to property (i.e. finances/money) in the event you become
incapable of making financial decisions on your own (for example, after you sustain a brain injury
following a car accident that renders you incapable).
A Power of Attorney for Personal Care allows you to appoint someone you trust (and of your choosing)
to make medical decisions on your behalf in the event you become incapable of making medical
decisions on your own (for example, after you sustain a brain injury following a bicycle accident that
renders you incapable).
Where someone is incapable and does not have a Power of Attorney in place, a Public Guardian – a
government official – is appointed to make decisions even if the incapable person has a spouse or family
member. Having Powers of Attorney in place will prevent this from happening.
It’s time to take action to ensure you and your loved ones are protected.
Call Lamont Law today to set up a meeting with Augustine Krawchenko during the month of March to
start the process and protect yourself and your loved ones.
