Terri Stein is a litigator with a focus on fairness and a down-to-earth style.
Long before entering law school, Terri’s career was dedicated to wills, capacity and end-of-life issues. Her interest in these matters began while volunteering as a caregiver at a residential hospice for marginalized people.
She subsequently worked as a Community Legal Worker at the Advocacy Centre for the Elderly, providing legal information and advice to low-income seniors on issues like elder abuse, long-term care, and powers of attorney. In that role, Terri also contributed to submissions to parliamentary and legislative committees considering legislation affecting the rights of older adults. Before deciding to attend law school, Terri worked in private practice as an Estates Law Clerk administering estates, and preparing probate applications and passings of accounts.
Once in law school, Terri earned prizes for her legal research and writing and was chosen to participate in the Osgoode Intensive Program in Criminal Law.
More recently, Terri articled at the Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee where she advocated on behalf of incapable clients in guardianship, estates, and civil litigation matters.
Terri has a J.D. from Osgoode Hall Law School, and a B.A. in English from York University.
After work, Terri can usually be found curled up with a book and her orange cat, Noodge.
