Our firm is committed to providing meaningful mentorship and hands on courtroom litigation experience to the next generation of trial lawyers. We typically recruit one articling student for each licensing cycle.

The articling experience with our firm is unique. Students assist counsel on both criminal and family matters and are relied upon to use their legal research and writing skills to provide comprehensive litigation support. Our students regularly attend and assist counsel at settlement conferences, motions, preliminary inquiries and trials throughout the articling term. As the term progresses, we encourage our students to independently address motions, applications, sentencing hearings and even trials where appropriate.

Successful candidates will have:

  • superlative legal research and writing skills;

  • an ability to perform under intense pressure;

  • a demonstrated interest in criminal defence or family law;

  • a commitment to developing their career in Simcoe County / Muskoka;

  • an empathetic, trauma informed approach to client relationships.


Above all, our ideal candidates will demonstrate to us that they have a sincere desire to become great trial counsel.
