Ever since childhood, Lex Arbesman has known that he wanted be a lawyer; he wrote ‘lawyer’ in his grade five yearbook when asked what he wanted to be when he grew up.

A native Torontonian, Lex attended York University (Toronto), where he obtained an honors double major in History and Law with a specialty in American History. After graduating, Lex moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he attended Dalhousie Law School (now the Schulich School of Law). Lex excelled in his legal studies and in 2003 was awarded the Milton and Carole Ehrlich Prize. While in law school Lex volunteered his time at the Halifax Family Law Legal Aid Clinic.

After law school, Lex returned to Toronto to become a member of the Ontario bar. Lex articled and subsequently worked as a lawyer at Flemingdon Community Legal Services under noted executive director Marjorie Hiley, providing immigration, landlord tenant, and poverty law services to the midtown Toronto community. In 2007 Lex joined the firm of Redway and Butler LLP and associated with Alan Redway.

Lex maintains a diverse practice, covering several different areas, but his focus is family law, estate litigation and estate administration. Lex is pragmatic and straight to the point by nature, and that comes out in how he practices law. He is not one to back down from a hostile opponent or be discouraged by a complex situation. Lex ensures that his clients understand all of their options, both good and bad, so that they can make informed decisions based on the realities of their situation. He firmly believes that most legal decisions should be made after weighing the costs and benefits associated with the available information. Sometimes it’s better to give on the little things than lose sight of the big picture.

Lex has represented his clients in tribunals and several levels of Courts, such as landlord tenant board, human rights tribunal, small claims court, Superior Court, Federal Court and the Ontario Court of Appeal. Lex is dedicated to his family and loves spending time with his wife and three children. He is an avid skier, sailor and golfer. He dreams of warm weather so he can take his Ducati to work.
