Meet Amanda

Amanda’s practice areas allow her to advise clients in various areas and when those areas intersect Amanda has the experience needed to advise on both. Amanda strives to make life easier for her clients by listening and solving issues as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In 2018, through The Law Foundation of Ontario, Amanda had the opportunity to develop the Summary Legal Counsel Project, of which she is also a roster lawyer. The SLC Project is a first of its kind and it offers the opportunity for unrepresented parties to retain experienced family lawyers at a highly discounted rate. Lawyers agree to provide services and assist individual parties on the day their matter is scheduled and to then appear in court with those individual parties. Addressing Access to Justice is such an important issue and the program has is gaining momentum, in 2020 it expanded into Toronto and interest continues to grow across the province.
