After my admission to practice law in 1975, I joined an established law firm in Hanover, Ontario.
During my years of practice in Bruce and Grey counties, I developed a commitment to the style of general law practice carried on in smaller communities, where lawyers spent time with their clients, listening to their needs and providing the customized services required.
When I returned to Toronto in 1978, I carried on a part-time law practice while employed with a major legal publisher. As managing editor (a position I held for over a decade) of the Canadian Encyclopedic Digest—a multi-volume legal encyclopedia which is a primary research tool for lawyers in Ontario—I enhanced my general legal knowledge and became acquainted with specialist lawyers throughout the province, contacts which have proved to be valuable resources in my current practice.
I returned to full-time law practice in the mid-1990s focusing on general practice in the areas where most people have need of a lawyer—wills, estates, contracts, family matters and real estate.
In recent years, while continuing to provide legal services in the areas of wills, estates, trusts and powers of attorney, I have developed my practice to include a focus on legal support for not for profits.
