About the firm
  • Ethically ambitious lawyer 


Being an ethically ambitious lawyer, means much more than just being "ethical".  It requires continual assessment and reassessment of one's ethics, with the goal of improving and strengthening one's ethics and professionalism.  It requires one to be vigilant to never settle for what is easiest or to let your convictions slide.  Trust, honesty, and confidence are qualities that you can expect from me as your advocate.  


  • Established relations with a broad network of legal experts


I have established relations with a broad network of experts in family law, civil litigation, wills & estate planning, and immigration law. By leveraging this network of experts with my strong research skills and analytical capacity, I am able to provide high-level legal services in a small, client-focused firm.


  • Efficient communication


Communication is important in maintaining a strong working relationship.  You can expect a response from me usually within 1 to 2 business days. 

  • Community focused


In both my professional life and my personal life, I make an effort to support various communities.  Each year I collect and donate Christmas gifts for foster children through the Elgin Street Courthouse Angel Program each year,  provides a free legal information clinic for LGBT youth here in Ottawa, provide reduced rates for wills and estate planning for people living with HIV/AIDS, and this year I participated in the Canadian Cancer Society's Free Will Month.  In my personal life, I am a member of an organization that is sponsoring the resettlement of gay refugees here in Ottawa, and I raise money for Multiple Sclerosis through participating in the annual MS Bike Ride from Ottawa to Cornwall.
