Practice Areas

My primary objective is to provide you with sound legal advice, and to help you achieve a fair, practical and cost-effective resolution to your family matter. I primarily practice in the area of family law which includes the following:

  • Contested Divorce
  • Uncontested Divorce
  • Separation Agreements
  • Child Custody
  • Child Access
  • Child Support
  • Spousal support / alimony
  • Property Division
  • Equalization of Property
  • Powers of Attorney & Wills


It is important that you know at least a little about the lawyer you intend to trust with your legal matter. I was born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario and achieved my Bachelor of Science Biology degree from Lakehead University in 2004.

I attended law school at the University of Manitoba earning the Pitblado Scholarship in 2007 for the Dean’s Honour List, and graduated in 2009. In 2010 I became fully licensed to practice law in Ontario by the Law Society of Upper Canada. I practiced as an associate lawyer with Larson Lawyers (previously known as Rene Larson Law Office) from 2010 until opening my own firm in 2017.

Since becoming fully licensed in 2010 I have primarily practiced in the area of family law and I also have extensive experience in preparing Powers of Attorney and Wills custom to my client’s needs and specifications. I have argued cases at the Ontario Court of Justice, Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Ontario Divisional Court, and the Ontario Court of Appeal.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my Wife and our daughter. As a family we especially enjoy spending time in the outdoors camping, swimming, and going for walks.

What I enjoy most about practicing law is helping my clients achieve a fair and reasonable resolution to their family matter and in turn helping them navigate through this process which can often be complicated and stressful.

If you feel that I may be able to help you with your family matter or with your Will and Powers of Attorney please feel free to give me call or contact me using the online form on our Contact page
