Experienced Legal Advice

Your Personal Legal Needs

Your Personal Legal NeedsThe problems we confront in our daily lives are increasingly complex.

From birth to death, legal issues touching every aspect of “who we are” and “what we do” abound.

We provide advice and representation in family law, from marriage contracts to separation agreements and divorce. These often involve such sensitive issues as child custody and access, spousal and child support. We aim to obtain resolutions for our clients which are fair, reasonable, and achieved without acrimony. When a negotiated resolution is not possible, we also have experience mediating, arbitrating and, if necessary, litigating the unresolved issues.

We also help our clients with their estate planning by providing strategic advice in all aspects of estate administration. This begins with the preparation of wills and other trust documents. We also regularly advise about and prepare Powers of Attorney for Property and for Personal Care (“living wills”). It also extends to representing estate trustees, from applying for Letters of Appointment, to managing and completing the administration of estates. We also regularly represent persons involved in estate litigation.

When dealing with a government agency, often-times people find themselves before various Boards and Tribunals. It helps to have an experienced, confident ally. We can help you navigate the complexities of administrative law.

We also know that personal tragedies and setbacks can be part of some lives. As part of our practice in mental health/health care consent/substitute decision making, we provide compassionate, experienced advice and representation before the Consent and Capacity Board to persons disputing an involuntary psychiatric hospitalization.

We also regularly represent victims of physical and sexual abuse before the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board.

If you find yourself in a dispute that requires experienced counsel and advice, you can call on us to strongly advocate for you in matters involving civil litigation and the defence of criminal charges.

We also regularly represent employees in matters such as labour and employment law.
