A few words from Robert

Welcome! Despite my 3rd Degree Black Belt in Karate, you’ll find me to be very personable.

You could say my clients benefit directly from my training in Karate. This art brings an inner discipline and desire for the achievement of excellence, and it is with great pride I carry these traits to my professional life as a Brimage Specialist Lawyer.

I pride myself on providing my clients with superior timely responses, with utmost care and expert knowledge.”

Prior to joining Brimage, I practiced at a mid-size downtown Toronto law firm. Since 1990, I have been extremely proud to be part of Brimage Law Group here in Norfolk County where I balance my workload with active community involvement. Professionally speaking, I am very proud to have achieved a Specialist Designation in Taxation, as well as to have authored “Agriculture Law in Canada.”

In the near future I look forward to meeting with you personally to discuss your legal needs for: Business Law, Taxation, Estate Planning and Wills & Trusts. As my client you will feel confident in my proactive approach. I will foresee issues before they impact you personally and/or professionally and that is my sincere guarantee.

Don’t Believe Everything Revenue Canada Tells You

I have at times had people in my office who have “spoken to someone at Revenue Canada” (or another government agency for that matter) and received advice that they are determined to follow. Sometimes they even obtain the name of the government person they spoke to. The person feels that he or she is “protected”. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
