Our Story

In 2004, Paul McLaughlin and his son Andrew teamed up to form a wills, estates and trusts law firm in Sherwood Park, Alberta.

Our vision was, and remains, to build a law firm that delivers personalized, high quality legal services.

We called ourselves Turning Point Law to express our commitment to helping our clients find peace of mind.


We chose Sherwood Park so we would be readily accessible to clients throughout Central Alberta.

We have helped thousands of Albertans to document their wishes regarding the distribution of their property after death, and thousands more with the often emotionally charged job of administering the estate of a loved one.

We welcome new clients from all walks of life. 

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to provide our clients with peace of mind by:

  • Helping our clients to achieve their legal, financial and personal goals through expert legal services or referrals to others who have the necessary expertise.


  • Always treating people with respect and dignity.


  • Being worthy of our clients' trust.


  • Striving to ensure that our clients understand any advice we give, documents we prepare or steps we take on their behalf.

  • Exceeding our ethical responsibilities to our clients, the justice system and the public.
