Tori has exclusively practiced in estate litigation since being called to the bar. Prior to joining the firm, Tori practiced at a boutique estates litigation firm where she gained invaluable experience in the practice of estate law. Tori has a special interest in power of attorney matters, dependant support matters, and files where individuals have capacity issues.
Passionate about the human mind, social connections, and behaviour, Tori studied psychology and received her Bachelor of Arts with Honours Specialization at the University of Western Ontario. During both her undergraduate studies, and law school, Tori volunteered with individuals with special needs. In particular, Tori has significant experience working with individuals with developmental disorders and complex mental health disorders.
Tori obtained her law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School. In law school, Tori held leadership positions on the boards of the Mental Health Law Society and the Family Law Association. Additionally, Tori was chosen to participate in a Mediation Intensive where she gained knowledge and practical experience in mediation. Following law school, Tori had three original articles published in The Lawyer’s Daily. Tori’s empathy, and understanding of the human mind and psychology, assist her in navigating her clients through the emotional and messy nature of estate litigation.
In her free time, Tori enjoys travelling, hiking, reading, skiing, and spending time with her family, friends, and Australian Labradoodle puppy.
