Mike is always up for a challenge, intellectual or otherwise. Mike first joined Simmonds Law as a summer intern, however, his work-ethic, tenacity, personability and sense of humor, allowed him to secure an articling position with the firm. During his articles, Mike worked on numerous case files across several areas of practice, most notably, employment law, wills & estates and business law. Mike also represented clients in matters before the Ontario Small Claims Court and the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.
Mike’s passion for advocacy provided him with a unique opportunity to hone a number of skills that are intangible to any litigator, including oral and written communication skills, interviewing skills, legal research skills and the ability to provide timely and professional service. As such, Mike was asked to join Simmonds Law as an associate. His practice primarily focuses on civil litigation, wills and estates, employment law and business law. He is a member of the Ontario Bar Association and the County of Carleton Lawyers Association.
