Dave Ertl, Estate Planning Professional – Brown Lawyers

DAVE ERTL

Life and A&S Insurance Agent
Estate Planning Professional

We’re a unique type of law firm here at Brown Lawyers, in that we are more of a family. I love that we truly do care about our clients and help them plan for the present and future. My official title is Estate Planning Professional. My work involves drafting the legal tools (Wills, POAs) for our clients, but it’s so much more. I get to see the life stories of our clients, their values, what’s important to them and the legacy they want to live, which inspires me to think about my values and what’s important to me. 

I grew up in Dundas and I love that we’re here in the community of Waterdown that has that awesome hometown feel! You may see me and the Brown Lawyers team down at a Jays game, Waterdown Ribfest, Waterdown Chili Fest or any other community event. 

A passion of mine is coaching baseball. My background includes being a former US College and Canadian Semi-Professional baseball player. I love teaching the fundamentals of the game and seeing how much the kids improve from year to year is amazing!  

Recently, I obtained my Life Insurance and Accident & Sickness Insurance Agent License after successfully completing the Life License Qualification Program (LLQP). I am a member of the Advocis (The Financial Advisors Association of Canada) Greater Hamilton Chapter.

LEGAL COACHES FOR LIFE

You don’t need to feel like you’re unqualified to make decisions about your own life, and you never need to go it alone. As lawyers, we understand the law and what it means to be thorough, complete and up-to-date with legal needs. As coaches, we put you at the core of everything, not only your legal work. You get caring support and guidance, not rigidity and bureaucracy.
Get in touch whenever you’re ready. We’re here if you need us.
