Amelia’s practice is focused on Estate Litigation, Power of Attorney Disputes, and Family Law as it relates to Estates or Power of Attorney matters. Death or incapacity of a loved one is always a very difficult time for families, but family disputes bring emotional complications.
As an experienced lawyer, Amelia believes that legal counsel should be accessible and cost effective for her clients. That’s why Amelia takes the time to understand her clients and the family dynamics at the heart of the issues. She pursues her clients’ best interests to the greatest extent possible.
Amelia began practicing law in 2007 as an associate with a Toronto-based litigation boutique. Then, Amelia moved her practice to the Durham region, where she continues to represent clients in Scarborough, Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, and surrounding areas.
“What motivates me every day is being able to help clients navigate through complicated matters to reasoned solutions” she says. “I feel like I’m directly advocating and helping people in situations that are overwhelming and seemingly impossible. Each situation is unique. Sometimes you need a court to resolve your issues, and other times you just need the litigation process to help guide the parties to a final resolution.”
Amelia has appeared before the Ontario Court of Appeal, Divisional Court and the Superior Court of Justice. Amelia received her Bachelor of Laws from Queen’s University in 2006, and was called to the Ontario Bar in 2007. She has been practising law for over 10 years.
