Because we are in court much of the time, we do not have regular office hours for walk-ins. Meetings are arranged by appointment only. This helps us to ensure your privacy and our undivided attention.
Getting in touch
The best way to get a hold of us (including after hours for emergencies) is by phone or email. Phones are answered by the firm’s Legal Assistant, Geena Mortfield, between 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours, including evenings and weekends, the office phone forwards to the cell phone of one of the lawyers in the office. The voicemail for our toll free and local numbers is monitored after hours for emergencies, as are our email addresses.
Inmates in provincial jails can call our toll free number (888-402-8282). This number is approved by the Ministry to be called toll free from any jail in the province. Please note this is not a collect call, it is a toll free call. This is the only number provincial inmates can use to call us.
Inmates in federal prisons must get our local number (613-777-6262) added to their phone card and then can call us like any other number. Please note this number cannot be called collect. This is the only number federal inmates can use to call us.
Locations we service
Although our office is based in Kingston, Ontario, we utilize technology and a network of local agents in other jurisdictions for preliminary court appearances to allow us to serve clients outside the Kingston area effectively and efficiently.
We do client meetings by phone or Skype whenever possible (unless you prefer to meet face to face) and we use a digital document signing service to allow you to sign documents remotely. We also offer online payment options by credit card and e-transfer. All of this is designed to save you time and money.
This approach allows us to serve clients in Ontario as far west as Kitchener and as far east as Ottawa. This includes, but is not limited to: Barrie, Belleville, Brampton, Brockville, Burlington, Cambridge, Cobourg, Cornwall, GTA, Guelph, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Lindsay, Milton, Mississauga, Newmarket, Oakville, Orangeville, Orillia, Oshawa, Ottawa, Peterborough, and Toronto.
We will travel to any of the federal prisons in Ontario (Collins Bay, Millhaven, Bath, Joyceville, Warkworth, Beaver Creek, and Grand Valley) for our federal inmate clients. We will also travel regularly to Central East Correctional Centre in Lindsay and Central North Correctional Centre in Penetanguishene for our provincial inmate clients, and to other provincial jails in certain cases.
Regardless of where you are located, if you need help, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will assist you in any way we can.
