Thank you for your email and I will get back to you shortly. As most of you now know, I am retiring from private practice, but I will still be available to my clients by this email ( and by telephone (705) 743-6470. Some clients are concerned, but please be assured that I have not "sold" my practice to any Peterborough lawyer, but rather will work with my clients at their request to find the best counsel for the specific legal issues facing them. I will also be working as “Of Counsel” with my nephew, Jason Ward's law firm in Lindsay, Ontario, WardsPC ( “Of Counsel” means I will act as an advisor and mentor to the firm, but I will not be active in the full time practice of law. I will be in the background and when necessary will act as a liaison between you and Wards PC. ( (1 705 324 9273) Wards PC is owned and operated by my nephew, Jason Ward and his wife, Karissa Ward. They are two of the finest, most professional lawyers I have had the pleasure of working with in my career. Both came from large Toronto firms and decided to move back to Lindsay to raise their young family. Wards PC is a full service law firm - so they can assist with any legal matter facing my clients, including:

  • Corporate Law (including buying and selling businesses and Professional Corporations)
  • Wills, Estate and Trusts
  • Real Estate Law (Residential and Commercial)
  • Family Law
  • Litigation
  • Personal Injury
  • Employment Law

I now store my Wills and Corporate records at Wards PC. They will still be under my control and management and if you need anything you are free to remain with Karissa and Jason, or if you prefer – you can pick up your original documents from them anytime. If you have your original Wills or Powers of Attorney or Corporate Books stored with me and would prefer to retain legal counsel elsewhere, no problem. Just let me know. After April 1st the office will be open by prior appointment only. Thank you for retaining me in the past. It has been a wonderful career in large part because I have enjoyed the confidence and support of my clients.

Best regards,
