My Practice

MyPracticeI practice as a sole practitioner in the areas of family law, real estate, wills and estates. My office primarily serves clients in the Niagara Region, such as St Catharines, Niagara Falls, Welland, Fort Erie and Grimsby, but I also serve clients in more distant locations, such as Hamilton, Milton and Burlington.

A large focus of my practice is family law. This includes:

  • Negotiating and drafting cohabitation, prenuptial and separation agreements;
  • Commencing court applications and pursuing cases in court until a settlement is reached, or a court order is obtained as a result of a trial.

The issues that I deal with during such processes are: custody, access and various aspects of parenting, child and spousal support, domestic abuse, division and equalization of matrimonial property, restraining orders and any combination of the above.

I represent clients in protection proceedings commenced by the Children’s Aid Society/Family and Children’s Services (FACS).

My clients are represented on either a retainer or a Legal Aid certificate basis.

I practice real estate (i.e., sales and purchases of residential properties), mortgages and refinancing, estate planning and estate litigation. I also prepare wills and powers of attorneys, and provide notary services.

My knowledge of common law, the civil law system, as well as my contacts within the legal community in Poland give me a heightened perspective on international aspects in these legal areas.
