Lynne’s practice involves all aspects of estates law. She provides sound guidance in estate planning and estate administration, and applies her experience to the resolution of estate-related conflicts.

Lynne strongly believes that the best way to live for today is to plan for tomorrow. She aims to make estate planning as straightforward and clear as possible, and provides creative and effective advice to help her clients plan ahead to preserve family relationships and reduce potential risks. Lynne is pleased to help her clients draft wills, powers of attorney for property and powers of attorney for personal care, and set up trusts. She offers succession planning advice for owners of family businesses, and has developed a particular expertise in planning for disabled individuals through the use of Henson Trusts, inheritance trusts and investment strategies.

The loss or incapacity of a loved one can be a difficult and challenging event. Lynne offers compassionate and practical advice to executors and attorneys for property and care with respect to their responsibilities, and further advises and guides executors in their estate administration duties.

Lynne provides advice to estate and trust beneficiaries with respect to their rights. She also advises on and litigates estate law matters, including disputes in estate, trust and capacity proceedings, and acts in matters involving powers of attorney and guardianship. Lynne has appeared before all levels of Ontario Courts, and at the Federal Court of Canada, and has extensive mediation and arbitration experience.

Before joining O’Connor MacLeod Hanna, Lynne articled and practiced at a leading international business law firm in Toronto. She then practiced for several years at a Bay Street litigation boutique, where she litigated a wide range of civil matters, many with an insurance component. Following her move to Oakville with her young family, Lynne decided to open her own practice. She narrowed her focus to estates-related litigation and pivoted quickly into estate planning and administration.

Lynne is a member of the Canadian Bar Association/Ontario Bar Association, the Halton County Law Association, and the Advocate’s Society.

Outside of the office, Lynne’s three young sons keep her busy at home. When she isn’t practicing law or accompanying her kids to their many sports and activities, Lynne enjoys running through Oakville’s trail system with her dog, skiing, cycling, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
