Robert (“Bob”) is a graduate of the University of Toronto (Victoria College) and the University of Toronto Law School. Bob practices in residential and commercial real estate law (purchases, sales, and mortgages), wills and estates, and corporate commercial and business law, as well as assisting in some civil litigation.
While he has considerable civil litigation experience, including arguing cases in the Ontario Court of Appeal, Bob now prefers the solicitor’s work involved with real estate, wills and estates (including powers of attorney) and corporate commercial law.
On a personal note, Bob was born and raised in rural Niagara Falls. The Morningstar Family Farm has been owned by the Morningstar family since 1881 and is still occupied by its current “matriarch”. Bob enjoys gathering around the pool at the farm with extended family and friends in the summer months.
Bob has always had a great interest in the arts and has served on various arts committees or boards during his career, as well as participated in live performances as a choral singer (tenor) and actor. He is a very active member of the Rotary Club of St. Catharines Lakeshore and a Paul Harris Fellow who proudly wears his “Paul Harris” PIN every business day. He is also a member of the United Church of Canada, the Canadian Bar Association, and the Lincoln County Law Association.
Bob prides himself in bringing to his law practice the Rotarian fundamental principles of the “four-way test” and the philosophy of “Service Above Self", endeavouring to be always approachable and friendly in his practice of law, while at the same time offering his many clients superior and efficient legal services which are affordable to all.
