Michael is passionate about the law and has extensive litigation experience, including substantial trial experience.  Michael has been successful at every level of court in Ontario, including the Court of Appeal.  Throughout his career, Michael has been involved in a number of cases which involve the intersection between family law and other areas of law, including corporate issues, estates law, and bankruptcy law.

In addition to dealing with cases involving other areas of law, Michael has presented at a number of continuing legal education programs, including in front of doctors on the intersection of women’s health issues and family law, before Toronto lawyers on the intersection of certain estate issues and family law, and at the Six Minute Family Lawyer in 2018,  where he presented on the topic of bankruptcy and family law. 

Michael has also been involved with three Charter of Rights and Freedoms cases separately involving children’s naming rights and support for adult children.

Michael’s experience in representing both adults and children, working in both a hands-on and academic environment, and dealing with cases of varying levels of complexity, gives him unique perspective on family law issues.  Michael uses this experience to negotiate sensible and fair resolutions to cases and to advocate strongly if litigation is necessary.
