My name is Michele Gordon.
I have been a practising lawyer for just over 25 years assisting clients in both the Barrie, Newmarket and Toronto areas.
I have lived in Barrie, Ontario with my two children since August of 2000. Prior to that time I lived in Toronto where I was born and raised.
I have been married and lived in common-law relationships. I am a parent and a step-parent. I have bought and sold property and I have incorporated my own small business and holding company. I have even, procrastinated, as most people do, in executing my own will and power of attorney. Having this life experience provides me the personal knowledge and empathy to understand, on a personal level, the challenges that my client's are facing and my legal experience allows me to navigate them through their legal issues as quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively.
I have the enviable position of practising in the areas of family law, real estate and wills and estates. This allows my clients to enjoy "seamless" representation, especially in the area of family law, where there the separation may result in the transfer and sale of properties. And, likewise both family law and real estate law lead to the discussion of issues such a wills and powers of attorney.
Most people find it hard enough to speak with a lawyer about their personal issues. Why speak to three separate lawyers when I can work with you to ensure that all of your needs can be met without duplicating your costs and your efforts.
I also enjoy assisting my clients with their small business needs and can assist with incorporations, shareholders and partnership agreements.
It would be my pleasure to assist you on an ongoing basis through many of the "twists and turns' life offers.
