Michele founded what is now Journey Law in 2009. She helps people who have lost a loved one with estate matters; works with families and businesses plan for their future with wills, powers of attorney, trusts, and corporate matters; and helps people buy, sell and refinance real estate. Michele became a lawyer 2002 and worked with firms in Ottawa, North Bay and Cornwall before founding the firm. Journey Law is the realization of Michele’s vision of providing the best client service possible in a warm, welcoming environment. Michele has been busy during her almost 20 years as a lawyer, but you can Google her and read about those things if you want. What likely matters most to you is that Michele is friendly and approachable. She listens individually to the needs of each client and does not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to any legal issue. With more complex matters, Michele prefers a team approach, working with other professionals and advisors to best meet the needs of the client. Because she is always looking to enhance her knowledge to assist her clients, Michele has obtained her TEP designation from the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners and is a member of the Estate Planning Council of Canada. When she is not working on Journey Law, Michele is single parenting two teens and a dog named Finn and spending time with her partner and step-children. She enjoys thrift shopping, travelling, camping in her vintage camper, and spending time with her family.
