About Us

About Us post image

Welcome! Do you want personal, practical, friendly, expert advice and representation from a top environmental lawyer and her team? 

If you would like to retain us, please complete the Potential Client Form and email or fax to us. We will let you know as soon as possible if we can take your case. We look forward to helping you if we can!

We’re good people to work with.

We are a small, friendly group of real human beings (and 2 dogs) who understand what it is to run a business in a competitive world. And because we’re small, every client matters. But we’re big enough to get the job done, frequently facing off against large groups of lawyers from the downtown firms.

We will return your phone calls and emails.

We’re a small firm, so excellent client service is everyone’s top priority.

YES, we know what we’re doing.

We are really good at environmental law. Dianne has been doing it full time for nearly thirty years and part time for nearly 40. We are the only Canadian environmental firm honoured to be a member of the very prestigious International Network of Boutique Law Firms. The INBLF is an organization of the most highly credentialed and pre-eminent single-discipline law firms in North America, and top full-service firms on other continents.
