I graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts in Administrative and Commercial Studies. I then attended Osgoode Hall Law School and received the John J. Robinette Scholarship. During law school, I worked at the Community Legal Aid Services Programme and was elected Chair of its Board of Directors. I graduated from law school in 1995 and attended the Bar Admissions Course in the advanced civil litigation group. I was called to the bar in 1997.
My Law Office
My primary areas of practice are as follows.
Real Estate Disputes
Real estate is one of the most valuable assets that someone will own in his or her lifetime. Often, when buying real estate, whether it is a house, condo, store front, or vacant land, individuals such as husband and wife or business partners will come together and pool their resources in order to make the purchase. While this allows people to buy real estate that they may not otherwise be able to afford on their own, it also can lead to disputes between the owners. For example, co-owning spouses may decide to go their separate ways or a co-owner of a business may decide he or she needs capital for a different venture. Another common situation is siblings inheriting a property jointly and disagreeing about what to do with it. If you are involved in a dispute over real estate with a co-owner of the property and would like legal assistance, you should contact me.
When someone you know and love passes away, the last thing on your mind is a Last Will and Testament challenge. However, that can change very quickly when the Last Will and Testament is revealed. Regardless of whether you are the one who feels the Last Will and Testament is valid or invalid, if you are dealing with a Last Will and Testament challenge, you should contact me as soon as possible. (Note: Waiting can harm your case and, in some cases, your case can become barred by statute.)
Estate Administration Disputes
Estate administration disputes can involve a variety of disagreements, such as the interpretation of the Last Will and Testament. Although a Last Will and Testament is supposed to designate the beneficiaries and determine the distribution of one’s assets in a clear and effective manner, how these terms are carried out can become a significant point of contention. I have the skills needed to resolve these matters and I look forward to assisting you.
