M.G. Michaels & Associates
Over two (2) decades ago, Marie G. Michaels set out on a mission to establish a community-based family law firm that served the needs of families in the local area. The mission has been successful and Marie is proud of the excellent reputation her firm has earned while serving the Durham Region, with a team of dedicated professionals.
Our office on Westney Road in Ajax, Ontario is accessible with to and from Highway 401 and makes for very convenient meeting with our lawyers regardless of whether you are coming from the east or west. From this central location we are poised to serve clients at our main focus, the Durham Region Courthouse in Oshawa as well as readily available to provide services in nearby jurisdictions where legal proceedings take place at courts within the Greater Toronto Area, Lindsay (City of Kawartha Lakes), Peterborough, Cobourg, and Newmarket.
Marie has gathered a group of like-minded professionals as part of the team at Marie G. Michaels & Associates. We are committed to continued education and training, as well as ensuring that we are up-to-date with changes in the law. That includes Marie’s decision some years ago to pursue certification as a, highly trained collaborative lawyer.
Our reputation for success comes from a proven record of excellence in the areas of negotiating and reaching balanced, respectful, and lasting, agreements that may involve a complete bypassing of otherwise troublesome courtroom processes; and where, after all other options are exhausted, some cases do still need to go through the Court process, we display our professionalism, skill, and experience in the courtroom.
Passion and Success
We proudly and passionately continue in maintaining our high success track record in highly challenging cases. In defending results obtained on behalf of our clients, Marie has twice appeared before the Ontario Court of Appeal to fend off Appeal seeking to overturn Trial results favourable to our clients. On both occasions, our defence efforts were a success and our client overjoyed that the Trial verdict was protected and remained unchanged by the Appeal effort.
Maintaining Our Preparation
How do we continue in our highly successful record? With over twenty (20) years of dedication to developing new knowledge and maintaining expertise with focused and caring ways, we are always well prepared!
