Kenneth Pope LL.B TEP

Kenneth C. Pope is one of the most experienced practitioners in Ontario providing services to families with a family member with a disability, and has focused his practice to help them put in place Henson trusts, which ensure that the child with a disability will not lose provincial disability benefits as a result of their inheritance. He also acts on behalf of clients to deal with Canada Revenue Agency to back file disability related tax credits and recapture substantial amounts of taxes which should not have been paid. Recovered amounts are typically $16,000 to $22,000.
