Since its inception, our firm has been trusted by hundreds of businesses, from sole proprietorships to large corporations, for all their legal needs. Business incorporations, professional incorporations, partnership agreements, purchase and sale of businesses, and contract matters are just a few of the areas in which we have a record of dedicated service.

Criminal Law

With over 50 years of experience between them, our criminal litigators have appeared and succeeded at every level of court in Ontario, defending against all kinds of charges, up to and including homicide. We stay current by participating in, and helping to organize, some of the province's best continuing legal education programs in this field.

Family Law

Our firm's 30-year tradition of excellence in family litigation lives on as we continue to provide practical advice and reliable representation in matters relating to separation and divorce, child custody and access, and division of property.

Real Estate

Our reputation for diligent and thorough service in real estate matters is well known in our community. Those purchasing or selling homes, land, rental properties or office buildings, have relied for years on our experience and expertise in this area.

Wills and Estates

Whether you need a will prepared, assistance with a power of attorney for property or personal care, or advice about an estate, you will find that our office prides itself on ensuring not just that the legal work is done well, but that you understand your position.

Coroner's Inquests

We act as counsel on coroner's inquests (a jury hearing inquiring into the circumstances of a death), and we have gained experience advocating for families of the deceased. This involves working on the questions: how, when, where, and by what means, did the death occur. Although coroner's juries do not make legal findings of responsibility, they can make recommendations that could assist in preventing deaths in similar circumstances.
