Why Choose the Friendly Lawyer™


1. Whatever it is,… it’s about you. You need advice you can understand.


2. If it’s not about you, it’s about people you care about. You need to believe you are doing what’s best.


3. Whatever the advice, you want the lawyer to still be there through the years following. My clients who “get it” know my greatest value is as their family counsellor on into the future, for the same sort of reasons as you have a family doctor for decades.

Almost all of my business is from repeat clients, or family and friends they refer to me.  Need I say more.
