The Spirit of Small Town Law
“It is the spirit and not the form of law that keeps justice alive.”
—Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court 1954-69
Sometimes, big-city law can seem uncomfortably hard-edged, competitive and impersonal. By contrast, the friendly, hometown atmosphere of Sackville, New Brunswick, encourages courtesy, cooperation, and thoughtfulness. Practising law in a small town setting, where an important meeting is more likely to take place on a street corner or at the local coffee shop than in a corporate board room, we concentrate on personal attention and respect for individuals. We prefer positive outcomes to punitive victories and seek to apply the principles of collaborative law to problem-solving. We specialize in:

- Collaborative family practice
- Wills, Trusts and Estates
- Power of attorney
- Corporate and commercial law
