Biography

Patrick has recently arrived from Newmarket, Ontario, to practice in Pushor Mitchell’s Family Law Group as an Associate Counsel.  Patrick hails from the West being born and raised in Penticton, and Calgary.  He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, and his Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Calgary.  In 1996 he became a lawyer in Prince George, and in 2001 a lawyer in Ontario.

His practice has been restricted to Family Law, and he helps separating families deal with issues of parenting, support, and property and debt division.  Although understanding court is sometimes a necessity, he believes most cases can be resolved through negotiation rather than litigation.  To that end he is a practitioner of Collaborative Family Law, and an experienced family law negotiator.  Patrick also helps people entering into new relationships by preparing prenuptial or marriage contracts.

Patrick has worked as counsel for the Ontario Office of the Children’s Lawyer representing children, and as a staff lawyer for Legal Services of BC.  Most recently he was a sole practitioner in Ontario.

When not assisting people with their family law issues, Patrick can be found during the warm months golfing, or camping and fishing.  In the winter he curls and plans to take-up skiing again.
