An alumnus of the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in history and political science, Jake then went on to complete his Bachelor of Laws with Honours from the University of Surrey.

Throughout his articles and academic placements, Jake has experienced a wide range of legal fields, which includes significant involvement before various levels of the Ontario court system and in drafting legal pleadings.

Jake’s main areas of practice are family lawwills and estates, and estate litigation. In line with the firm’s ethos, Jake believes in a practical and rational approach to ensure that clients are made aware of all options, allowing them to make an appropriate, informed decision that best meets their needs. Jake is known to be personable with both clients and opposing counsel, believing that an amicable relationship is the most effective method of progress towards reaching a settlement. That said, Jake remains a fierce and devoted advocate of his clients’ rights, ensuring that every step or action made is in the best interests of that particular client. Jake is aware of the anxiety and distress that legal proceedings can have on his clients and is dedicated to supporting his clients through the process.

When not in the office, you’ll probably find Jake at the driving range working on his golf swing, or somewhere on the road following the Dave Matthews Band, who he’s seen over 40 times in four different countries.
