He ended up graduating in 1986 with a BSF (Bachelor of Science in Forestry) but before then, Wes Mussio was heavily involved in student politics being the House President at Place Vanier-Robson House for a year and being the President of Gage Towers for two years. Rather than immediately going into law school, Wesley Mussio decided to pursue a Registered Professional Forester (“RPF”) designation and took a year off to work for the Ministry of Forests in Williams Lake and then West Fraser Mills in Quesnel. He then entered the Faculty of Law at UBC and eventually graduated in 1990. Wes Mussio then took another six months out of law to finish off the necessary two-year training for becoming an RPF.

Since becoming a lawyer in 1991, Wes Mussio began working in the area of ICBC injury claims, principally defending claims on behalf of ICBC. He worked as an ICBC defence lawyer for a little over a decade and then decided to move to the plaintiff only side to help injured parties. His first stint at plaintiff only work was at Murphy Battista but in 2011, Wesley Mussio decided to join forces with Eric Goodman and open Mussio Law Group and then eventually Mussio Goodman. The new law firm has quickly developed into one of the leaders in personal injury litigation as well as estate litigation. In 1993, Wesley Mussio and Russell Mussio opened up Backroad Mapbooks and the company has now developed into one and largest national mapping companies in Canada. As Wes Mussio has a passion for the outdoors, this company is a perfect fit as he gets to travel the outdoors in guise of research projects. Wesley Mussio married Penny Stainton in 1993 and they have two lovely children, Madison Mussio and Devon Mussio. Madison lives in London attending Birkbeck University for a Bachelors of Law degree. Previously, she obtained a Bachelor of Business degree in hospitality and tourism from Les Roches in Switzerland graduating with distinction and top 20% of her class.

When a family member passes, invariably someone needs to take over the affairs of the deceased and ensure fairness in the distribution of the deceased’s assets. In deciding who should control the wind-up of the estate, the Will of the deceased will be the key document to review for the answer.


The unfortunate part is that families are often complex with plenty of infighting. Wills are seldom completely fair and for that matter, many people die without a Will. In the result, there is plenty of British Columbia estate that end up in litigation simply because the deceased did not expect to die and therefore, did not properly manage the way in which his/her estate will be distributed upon death.


This book is written as a general introduction for a person learning about estate matters for the first time. The language is simplistic and so the book is intended to alert the reader to potential issues in the wind-up of an estate. Ultimately, it is good advice to consult a lawyer on your particular issue before proceeding. The book contents, however, will alert you to some potential pitfalls so you can focus your efforts accordingly.


Ultimately, we hope this book will help you understand the estate wind-up process, so you have the necessary background to get a fair result from your family member as it relates to the estate of a love one.
