Practicing Family Law
Effective Advocacy with Practical Results
Guiding Clients to Resolution With Empathy
Tory was initially attracted to the practice of family law due to her strong desire to work directly with people to protect their legal rights as they navigate through one of the most difficult times in their lives. Tory aims to bring empathy and understanding of the challenges that her clients face as they determine the most practical and cost-efficient path forward.
Tory has experience representing her clients at all court appearances before the Superior Court of Justice, including case and settlement conferences, motions, and trials. Tory is also adept at representing client’s interests at alternative dispute arbitration processes, including mediation and arbitration.
Tory graduated from the University of Guelph with a Honours B.A. in Psychology before receiving her Juris Doctor from Queen’s Faculty of Law in 2017. While studying at Queen’s, Tory completed several placements with local family lawyers in Kingston, as well as with the Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington. She articled and practiced for a number of years with a boutique family law firm in Ottawa before joining Richardson Hall.
Outside of the office, Tory enjoys reading the latest psychological thriller, going on hikes with her Goldendoodle Douglas, and spending time with her family and friends in Ottawa and Toronto.
