A few words from Brett

Caution Toronto Maple Leaf Fans… I am a fan of the Ottawa Senators.

I was born and raised here in Norfolk where my family farmed everything from asparagus and strawberries to tobacco. After completing my education, and prior to becoming a lawyer, I worked with one of the biggest multinational telecommunications companies in the high-tech sector. I love technology and I try to use the latest gadgets and software in my professional law practice to accommodate my clients and serve them more efficiently.

“I am very detail oriented. Buying or selling real estate is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your lifetime and it is extremely important that the details in your transaction are accurate. I am very approachable and work hard to make sure that your questions are answered.”

Professionally speaking, I am exceptionally reliable and dependable. I care immensely about my clients and strive to achieve their goals and look out for their best interests every single day. I continuously pursue educational opportunities to ensure my clients benefit directly from the most current training available.

Visit me at our Simcoe office today (or at our Port Dover, Delhi and Langton offices by appointment) for: Real Estate, Mortgages, Landlord & Tenant disputes and Wills & Estate legal needs.
