Why Maverick Law?

The term maverick has been used in various movies and TV shows over the years but it originates with a cattle owner who chose to walk a different path from others in his industry.

The Oxford Dictionary defines a maverick as “an unorthodox or independent-minded person.” 

“That’s what I strive to be as a lawyer. The world has enough know-it-alls in pin stripe suits. I think there’s a different way to practice law. When I practiced law at Canada’s national law firms, concepts like justice, truth, client-service, integrity – they all took a back seat to billable hours. I try to take an unorthodox approach from the contemporary style of practicing law. My job is to help you achieve your goals in the most effective way possible.”
