One of the bigger pleasures I enjoy while practicing law as a full-time solicitor is the opportunity to develop long term relationships with my clients.  Because I handle wills and estate work and real property matters in addition to corporate and commercial matters, I am able to provide advice and assistance to my clients in their day to day work, their long-term business plans and their estate and life plans.

I have over two decades of experience in acting for business clients which has made me recognize that a valued lawyer must be responsive to a client’s needs, proactive in dealing with their plans and cost-effective for the services they require.  

I have developed an extensive wills and estate practice and am able to assist my clients in all aspects of their estate planning.   I am a part of our firm’s deep history as a real estate law firm and as such I enjoy providing my clients with the trusted and reliable service needed to complete their transactions, whether it is the purchase or sale of a residence, the acquisition of an apartment building, the development of a condo project or the leasing of commercial premises.
