Established in 1952

Munro & Crawford has served generations of Vancouver residents. From a single office, established by founding partner William Munro in Kerrisdale, the client base has spread to every part of the Lower Mainland and provinces across the country. The client base may be mobile but their loyalty to Munro & Crawford is a constant – testimony to the value of a neighbourhood law office that understands the changing needs of its clients. Bill Munro was joined by Peter Crawford in 1973.


The firm’s focus on service took on a physical persona in 1978 with the construction of a charismatic little brick building at 5670 Yew Street. Bill and Peter were determined that the façade of their practice would be as approachable as their philosophy of the practice of law – the building, now a Kerrisdale landmark, personifies this.


Real Estate

Buying, selling or mortgaging a home is often the largest financial transaction of your life. Ensure your interests are protected; tax and title searches need to be completed before closing, and the necessary transfer of title and mortgage documents or discharges need to be properly filed at the Land Titles Office.


A well drafted, up-to-date will is one of the best legacies you can leave your family. Clear instructions ensure that your beneficiaries will receive the gifts and care you intended, and will greatly reduce the potential for litigation.


A trust is an arrangement where assets are held with specific stipulations as to how and when a beneficiary or beneficiaries may access the assets. A trustee (or more than one trustee) is appointed to have legal ownership of assets within the trust. The trustee may or may not be a beneficiary.

Probate & Estate Administration

Probate means to prove. It is a legal process by which a will is proved valid or invalid; and is always required if the estate contains real estate, bank accounts or other financial instruments with a value of $25,000 or more.
