WELCOME

Welcome to the current version of my web site. And thank you for taking the time to "drop in" and visit.

PURPOSES

The primary purpose of this web site is to provide its visitors with legal information relevant to the province of Ontario, and to provide insight into the adversarial process in Ontario.

The secondary purpose of this web site is to provide its visitors with an introductory insight to my client service philosophy and my unique style of legal practice.

FEATURES

Features of this web site include:

1. The Do You Know legal information series [in the areas of real estate, business law, civil litigation, employment law employee's perspective and employer's perspective, family law and prenuptial agreements and domestic contracts]. Each topic in the series is available to you in a downloadable pdf format.

2. Linda's counsels, or general legal tips and reminders (throughout all pages)

3. Contact information

4. E-Mail: linda@LitigateToWin.ca

5. Video clips explaining parts of my practice philosophy.

6. My Reported Case, or the record of my Reported Cases. A case is reported in Ontario if the case settles, or makes new law. To the time of mounting of this web page, in June 2004, I have thirty [30] reported cases as counsel.

The case citations are included in the Case Record, for those of you who want to go directly to the reported case.

But for those of you who would prefer the significance of the case explained to you in simple and understandable English, I have included my own commentary on each of the thirty cases in the Case Record.

And since it appears that I will never get around to publishing my novel " Trials and Tribulations: Personal Memoirs of a Lady Barrister" I have included in some of the commentaries, my own observations, some benchmarks in my own development as a barrister, as well as the obligatory barrister-style " war stories".

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

If the Law Society of Upper Canada had not suggested, in at least one of its practice development seminars, that every lawyer should have a web site, you likely would not have been viewing this site.

And if William Stratas, president of Planetcast, had not had the vision, and sensitivity, and tenacity to continue to prod me along the web site development trail, you likely would not have been viewing this site either.

So thanks to the Law Society of Upper Canada, and William and the rest of the Planetcast team, for the suggestion, the graphics and the code and the encouragement.

And thanks again for dropping in and checking out my web site.

COMING SOON

Coming soon will be my weblog on current legal issues, and further legal musings.

Hope to have the pleasure of being one of your web destinations in the future, as your time permits and your need or interest arises. And I hope you have enjoyed my site.
