Business Law

Business Law animation

We know business is a dynamic, competition-based reality.  We know you have to make decisions to grow, consolidate, or reposition.

All lawyers will tell you that they know the law, communicate persuasively, bill fairly and report regularly.

We do that.

Here’s what else you can expect:

We operate at the speed of business.

We know business doesn’t always happen during business hours. We know business happens all over the globe.

Today, geography gives way to technology. Different time zones speak of opportunities, not barriers.

A smarter law firm means a more accessible lawyer.

We help local go global.

We employ communication, data collaboration & transfer technology that makes the world smaller, faster and easier for our business clients; whether they are in Southwestern Ontario or Southeast Asia. We can meet, negotiate, sign and close locally or globally.

A smarter law firm means a more productive lawyer.

We don’t reinvent the wheel.

Sometimes all that’s needed is a form, document or tip that can solve problems or issues that repeat in your business.  We create customizable smart forms that you can use as often as you need; flexible enough to allow for changes without leaving you exposed. We track versions, use and currency to make sure you have what you need to operate without having to reinvent the wheel each time you need it.

A smarter law firm means a smarter lawyer.

 

At The Ross Firm, Business Law stands for:

Planning new companies, or succession planning

• Advocating on behalf of our clients and resolving disputes through negotiation or litigation

• Negotiating and drafting contracts for businesses, partners, shareholders, employees, and others

Buying, selling, restructuring or refinancing a business

Advising and providing guidance on laws and regulations impacting your business

Someday everyone will be doing it our way,

Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation animation

"I’ll see you in court!"  You’ve heard it said, maybe you’ve even said it yourself.  Often saying it is enough.  Sometimes it isn’t.  We’re here for when it isn’t.

All lawyers will tell you that they know the law, communicate persuasively, bill fairly and report regularly.

We do that.

Here’s what else you can expect:

We use a modern communication platform.

We interface with our clients in a manner that suits them.  In person, yes. Phone, sure. Email, of course.  Skype, FaceTime, Text – absolutely.

We offer a dedicated client portal.

A space where lawyer and client can collaborate.  Clients can see their documents and communication, calendar, and litigation budget.

A smarter law firm means a more accessible lawyer.

We engage Automated Document Assembly.

Automation allows us to assemble court documents at least 20 times faster than manually, saving time and money to be spent on your case, not clerical. Court forms and agreements are completed with improved accuracy, avoiding errors and reducing risk.

A smarter law firm means a more productive lawyer.

We offer a Digital Litigation Court Document Database.

Using leading edge technology, we have access to Canada's largest collection of litigation court documents.  This combines litigation-focused research with practice specific tools to support your strategic decisions and automate the most tedious tasks.

A smarter law firm means a smarter lawyer.

We all find ourselves in tough situations sometimes in life.

We’re here to listen to your story and to tell it for you- to get you the best possible outcome.

All lawyers will tell you that they know the law, communicate persuasively, bill fairly and report regularly. We do that.

A smarter law firm means a more accessible lawyer.

We get things started right away.

A smarter law firm means a more productive lawyer.

Employment Law is contracts.  It’s terminations, illnesses, leaves.  It’s dynamic and often happens suddenly.

Employment lawyers will tell you that they know the law, communicate persuasively, bill fairly and report regularly.

Modern Litigation Support.

Sometimes things end badly. We’re here for that. We interface with our clients in a manner that suits them. In person, yes. Phone, sure. Email, of course. Skype, FaceTime, Text – absolutely.

Dedicated Client Portal.

A space where lawyer and client can collaborate. Clients can see their documents and communication, calendar and litigation budget.

Family Law

Family Law animation

The problem isn’t knowing when you need a family lawyer, it’s knowing which one to choose.

All lawyers will tell you that they know the law, communicate persuasively, bill fairly and report regularly.

We do that.

Here’s what else you can expect:

We communicate across platforms that suit you.

The binary choice of in person or by phone is dead everywhere else, why not in law?  Skype, FaceTime, Text, Email…no problem.  Don’t worry, we still have offices and make a great cup of coffee so you can feel free to visit us any time.

A smarter law firm means a more accessible lawyer.

We turn paper into data. 

No more reams of forms, documents and evidence.  Just smart digital documents that you can access, comment on and store.

A smarter law firm means a more productive lawyer.

We turn data into results.

Having a paperless office means faster retrieval of key materials.  It means instant access to thousands of hours of research and thousands of past cases we can use to save valuable time and accurately assess your chances of success.

A smarter law firm means a smarter lawyer.

Personal Injury Law

Personal Injury Law animation

You’ve been in an accident. Now what? We’re here to give you the answers. After an accident, your focus should be on your recovery. Looking at a mountain of insurance forms? Send them over. Getting calls from insurance adjusters that leave you with more questions than answers? We’ve got you covered. We have the experience and knowledge to help you navigate everything that happens after an accident.

All lawyers will tell you that they know the law, communicate persuasively, bill fairly and report regularly. We do that.

What makes us different? We want to get you the best possible settlement- of course- but we also want to help you get back to the best version of you.

Here’s what else you can expect:

We don’t chase ambulances.

We care about you- not just your settlement- and we really aren’t just saying that. We’re there for you whenever, and however, you need us. In person? Yes. Phone? Sure. Email? Of course. Skype, Facetime, Zoom, text? Absolutely.

A smarter law firm means a more accessible lawyer.

We want to get to know you before we even meet you.

Our electronic Intake process starts before we even meet. This helps us help you faster and makes sure we get every detail we need to advocate for you right from the start.

A smarter law firm means a more productive lawyer.

We use technology to move faster and keep your costs down.

Your file literally won’t sit on a shelf. We run a paperless practice and use sophisticated technology to get you results faster and to automate administrative tasks- so you aren’t paying for them.

A smarter law firm means a smarter lawyer.

Motor vehicle accidents

Slip and Fall accidents

Pedestrian/bicycle accidents

Motorcycle accidents

Snowmobile accidents

Medical malpractice

We work for you from the beginning but let you pay at the end.

You’ve been hit. So have your finances. We get that paying legal bills after an accident can feel impossible. To make sure you can let us help you, we will work for you right from the beginning but let you pay us at the end. We won’t charge you legal fees unless we get you a financial settlement and we will never charge you more than 30% of your settlement. We also never take home more of your settlement than you do.

People want 3 things from their real estate lawyer:

  1.  If they are buyers…they want the key to their new house.
  2.  If they are sellers…they want the cheque.
  3.  Both want to know it's being done right.

All lawyers will tell you that they know the law, communicate persuasively, bill fairly and report regularly.

We do that.

Here’s what else you can expect:

We communicate across platforms that suit you.

The binary choice of in person or by phone is dead everywhere else, why not in law?  Skype, FaceTime, Text, Email…no problem.  Don’t worry, we still have welcoming offices and make a great cup of coffee so you can feel free to visit any time.

A smarter law firm means a more accessible lawyer.

We digitized our documents to save trees and time.

Behind the scenes, we keep doing the sophisticated searches and due diligence then digitize the documents, you review them on a huge TV monitor and sign them electronically.

A smarter law firm means a more productive lawyer.

We use proprietary processes to complete your deal.

In many cases, we can have you in and out of the office in 20 minutes without ever having touched a single piece of paper.  Your signed documents will be waiting in your email when you leave.

We can of course do it the old-fashioned way if you prefer, but it's much more fun doing it electronically.

A smarter law firm means a smarter lawyer.

Wills & Estate Law

Will and Estate Law animation

We’ve got some good news and some bad news.

The bad news is that we all have a “best before” date. The good news is that with some planning, those left behind won’t have a legal mess to clean up.

All lawyers will tell you that they know the law, communicate persuasively, bill fairly and report regularly.

We do that.

Here’s what else you can expect:

We understand that the process can be hard.

Contemplating one’s death isn’t fun.  Administering an estate only happens after someone close has passed away.   The last thing you need are barriers in communicating with your lawyer.  We are accessible across all communication platforms that suit you.

A smarter law firm means a more accessible lawyer.

We get to know you before we meet you.

Our electronic Estate Planning Intake process starts before we even meet, and ensures that our first meeting is a productive one.

A smarter law firm means a more productive lawyer.

We use very new tools to deal with a very old need.

Whether we are drafting your Will or assisting executors administering an estate, we make it as seamless and cost-effective as the law will permit. We use up-to-the-minute software and hardware to make the ancient act of succession timely, efficient and effective.

A smarter law firm means a smarter lawyer.

Quinn Ross does not tolerate bullies and he’s got the scars to prove it. After a few “viscerally satisfying” schoolyard encounters, it occurred to Quinn that there had to be a better way to deal with conflict. Law, it seems, was inevitable.

Out of the gate, Quinn was a successful litigator at The Ross Firm, with a focus on property, expropriation and employment cases. Over time, as the firm grew, Quinn has shifted his legal focus to business law: corporate commercial transactions, real estate and wills and estates. He has guided Ontario clients in transactions with parties worldwide, including China, Africa, Europe, South America and the United States, to mention a few.

Quinn regularly incorporates, reorganizes, structures financing, merges, and purchases and sells federal and provincial corporations. His knowledge of secured transactions helps limit exposure for vendors in a sale, and restrict overreaching lenders during purchases.

Quinn heads up the real estate team and treats each real property transaction with the same care and interest whether it is the purchase or sale of a residential home, or a multi-unit, multi-million dollar commercial property. Quinn appreciates the added experience of having litigated real estate matters when they go wrong, so he is keenly aware of potential pitfalls before they occur.

Professionally, Quinn is a past President of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Bar Association. Quinn is a regular speaker at the Law Society of Upper Canada and the Ontario Bar Association. In his community, Quinn serves as the immediate Past President of the Alzheimer Society of Huron County, and counsel to numerous not-for-profit organizations.

Jenn McMillan has been arguing cases since she was very young. She says that as a child, she enjoyed the challenge of bringing someone to her way of thinking. When she realized there was a job where she could do that “all day, every day,” she thought that practicing law was a perfect fit.

As a family lawyer, Jenn believes in educating her clients. During what can be a particularly challenging time, she restores their confidence and re-establishes an element of control. This empowers and enables her clients to determine their own future.

Whether she is acting for a father to obtain custody of his young son, arguing for supervised access, acting for a wife to secure support after a long-term relationship, or a parent seeking to restrict or terminate the other parent’s access, each day is a new opportunity to successfully advocate on behalf of her clients to achieve their goals.

Jenn also acts for grandparents, family members, or foster parents who are seeking custody of children in their care; these cases often result in adoptions, which are bright spots in what can often be challenging processes.

Jenn’s practice also includes the successful resolution of significant property cases dealing with large farming operations and other businesses, as well as income determination cases where expert evidence is employed to prove income.

In her community, Jenn is the immediate Past President and current Treasurer of the Huron Law Association (as well as the Perth, Bruce, & Grey Law Associations), and our representative at the Federation of Law Associations of Ontario. She is the immediate Past Co-President of the South West Region Women’s Law Association. Jenn is also a Past President of the Board of Directors of Victim Services of Huron County, and a Past President of the Huron Perth Community Legal Clinic.

Elli Cohen is not afraid to take on difficult cases. He is relentless in the pursuit of his client’s rights. Elli has found that much of the work he’s taken on in the last few years has been referral work from other lawyers, including appeals and particularly complex financial cases.

Elli has had great success in large, complicated property cases including matters that dealt with international property, corporate interests, family businesses, farm valuations, quota, and crops, stocks and bonds as well as other financial equities. His experience working at CIBC and Merrill Lynch in Toronto before heading off to law school has stood Elli and his clients in good stead.

And while he’s no longer close to the bright lights of Toronto, Elli is doing what he can to shine a light on the arts in Blyth, Ontario as the President of Board of Directors for both the Blyth Centre for the Arts and Blyth’s Campaign 14/19.

Danielle Landry

Danielle Landry headshot
bio
education

Since her call to the Bar, Danielle has practiced civil litigation, handling primarily personal injury cases. She has extensive experience with complex catastrophic personal injury cases.

In addition, Danielle has a large criminal law practice. She has successfully conducted criminal law trials before Judge alone and Judge with Jury. Her cases include some of the most serious charges such as attempt to commit murder.
Danielle was born and raised in Moncton, New Brunswick. In her early years, Danielle remembers family members commenting on her intensity and unbounded intellectual curiosity. They referred to her as the “old soul”.
It is no wonder, at the age of three, this “old soul” found a passion in ballet and by middle school was dancing six days a week after school. At high school, she joined the Pre-Professional Division of dance and became a member of The DanceEast Young Company. This experience, Danielle says taught her discipline, commitment and the importance of hard work to achieve her goals.
Danielle is passionate about helping people. While at Dalhousie University, she worked with students selected from refugee camps to receive sponsorship and complete university studies; spent a summer in Bagamoyo, Tanzania teaching English to elementary school aged children; and, volunteered for three years at the Ronald McDonald House as a weekend and overnight volunteer, where she assisted children and their families with finding a home away from home while the children were receiving lifesaving medical care. These experiences greatly expanded her world view, taught her true empathy, and gave Danielle the perspective on what really matters in life.
Danielle had planned to become a doctor, (hence her neuroscience degree) but lawyers at the law firm where she worked as a summer student, convinced her that law was her intended future.
Danielle earned her Bachelor of Science (Bsc), Honours in Neuroscience from Dalhousie University (2009), followed by her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from The University of New Brunswick (2012). She was called to the bar in Ontario in September 2013.
Danielle has successfully represented clients at all levels of court including the Ontario Court of Justice, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and the Court of Appeal for Ontario.

Danielle has been a Director on the Board of Directors at the YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce, since 2014 and is currently an acting Vice President.

Michelle Hol

Michelle Hol headshot

education

Growing up and working on the family farm just outside of Clinton, Ontario taught Michelle Hol many important lessons: the value of hard work, the importance of seeing the big picture while paying attention to detail, and working until the job is done. After completing her Psychology undergraduate degree through the Scholar’s Electives Program at the University of Western Ontario, Michelle was eager to return to her family’s farm and a job as a law clerk with The Ross Firm. Practicing in real estate and corporate commercial, Michelle quickly realized that working in the legal field was something she enjoyed doing and returned to London to attend Western Law School.

Upon graduating law school, Michelle obtained a position at a large Hamilton law firm where she gained considerable experience in corporate-commercial law, including purchase and sale of businesses, corporate reorganizations, corporate financing, real estate and wills and estates. While Michelle enjoyed the people and the work in Hamilton, she determined it was time to return to her roots and moved back to Huron County. Michelle rejoined The Ross Firm upon her return, this time as an Associate lawyer. Michelle is engaged in a general business law practice, and assists clients with all their corporate/commercial, real estate, and wills/estate needs.

Michelle’s practice has a special emphasis on advising farmers and agri-businesses as well as entrepreneurs and new start-ups.

Michelle is a member of the Canadian Association of Farm Advisors, the Ontario Bar Association and the Christian Legal Fellowship.

Jenna Murphy

Jenna Murphy headshot

education

As a child Jenna was frequently told “you should be a lawyer when you grow up”. That thought always stuck with her and led to ultimately being called to the Ontario Bar in 2017. Before her call to the Bar, Jenna completed her Undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph and then earned her Bachelors of Law from the University of Kent, England.

Having grown up in Port Elgin, Jenna always knew she wanted to come back to the area to start her legal career and build her practice. Her knowledge of the area brings with it a strong understanding of the community in which she works as well as history that lends itself to better serving her clients.

Before joining the Ross Firm, Jenna worked at an established Port Elgin practice and then as a sole practitioner in her own office. At the Ross Firm Jenna continues to build upon her knowledge and experience in real estate and estates law with a view to expanding her practice in these areas. Aside from residential purchase and sale transactions, Jenna has experience with land lease transactions, matrimonial property transfers, private mortgages, severances and more. Jenna further offers a kind understanding, patience and care to her estates clients and knows the challenges executors face during the estate administration process.

Jenna is dedicated to delivering prompt and quality service while making the process smooth and uncomplicated for clients. She looks forward to continuing to serve the community in which she grew up.

Mikayla Greig

Mikayla headshot

education

Mikayla is a family law lawyer, with The Ross Firm. She has successfully handled cases from complex Domestic Contracts to contentious but negotiated Separation Agreements. Her portfolio of cases includes child and spousal support, contested custody and access, obtaining sole custody (decision making) of children, as well as orders for supervised access against an opposing parent. She has also dealt with complex property files involving everything from farm equipment and land to stocks, bonds, the matrimonial home and complex pension plans.

Mikayla was born to become a lawyer. She remembers growing up in the country outside of Owen Sound along with a menagerie of pets. In order to persuade her parents for each additional pet, Mikayla, as a child, created a contract, complete with signature line, outlining her “ask” and agreeing to feed, clean and care for her mixed brood. Faced with a signed legal document, how could her parents say no?

Until taking law courses in high school, Mikayla had actually planned on becoming a police officer like her brother; but after being exposed to those high school law classes, her career path changed.

Mikayla received a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honours in Criminology and Sociology from the University of Western Ontario in 2015.
During her undergraduate years at Western, Mikayla returned home in the summer months to play women’s rugby for the Bruce County Banshees out of Tiverton. She also played varsity rugby for Western University and was a member of the triathlon club.
As an undergrad, Mikayla acted as a co-facilitator for a program called Changing Ways, a primarily court-mandated program whose mission statement is to assist men in ending their violent behaviour towards the women and children in their lives.
She received a Juris Doctor from Lakehead University in 2018, with a first-class standing. During law school Mikayla acted as a VP for the Women in Law committee. She also took part, as a research assistant, in the development of the first comparative human rights research database in Canada, designed to helps both the public and legal practitioners navigate human rights law in Canada.
After attending law school in Thunder Bay, Mikayla happily returned to her home town of Owen Sound, where she completed her articles and now practices family law with The Ross Firm.
Mikayla considers her emotional intelligence – or “people skills” – to be one of her strengths as a lawyer. She listens intently to each client, showing them empathy, patience and understanding when they are going through a very tough and emotionally charged life-altering event. She knows that sometimes her clients – mothers, fathers, children, grandparents, foster parents, family members – are scared, and she works to make them feel a little less intimidated by the process.
Mikayla believes in educating clients, and restoring their confidence. She works to help them re-establish control over their lives and in the end, enables them to determine their own futures.
Outside of work, Mikayla enjoys reading, cycling and travelling.

Kara Muzzell

Born and raised in Owen Sound, Kara is proud to call Grey-Bruce home with her three wonderful children and her husband, Wayne. Her passion for law was ignited in 2004 when
she became employed at a local law firm, which allowed her to work alongside Hon. Justice Clayton Conlan, Federal Prosecutor Elizabeth Barefoot, Federal Prosecutor and Hon.
Justice Hugh O’Connell and Justice of the Peace Terry Steenson.
In 2012, studying at a private college in Brampton, Kara completed the Paralegal Diploma program with Honours and was licensed by the Law Society of Ontario in 2013. Without hesitation, Kara opened her own practice as a paralegal and business owner in her hometown of Owen Sound, which she successfully operated for nearly 8 years. 
Kara’s practice grew to a point where she knew, in order to give her clients the best of her, she needed to make a shift. That shift led her to The Ross Firm, where Kara looks forward to continuing to provide unmatched representation in Small Claims Court, Landlord and Tenant Board and Provincial Offences. Kara most recently was sworn in as a Municipal Prosecutor and looks forward to serving various municipalities throughout our region.
In addition to advocating for her clients and raising a family, Kara began teaching in the Law Clerk program at the Owen Sound Campus of Georgian College in 2018. As a Paralegal and a previous Landlord herself, Kara loves sharing her knowledge and passion of Landlord and Tenant law with her students. 
When Kara isn’t hard at work, you may find her at the ball diamond with her slow-pitch team, camping with her family, out exploring on her kayak or travelling with friends and family.

Paul Ross

Paul Ross headshot
bio
education

Paul’s route to practice was far less direct than that of many of the other lawyers at The Ross Firm. After graduating from Osgoode Hall Law School (when it was still located at Osgoode Hall), he worked at the Toronto Telegram as a news reporter, as a Queen’s Park speechwriter for several of Bill Davis’ Conservative cabinet ministers, as the editor-in-chief of a travel magazine, and he also authored a published novel.

Paul Ross has been practicing law for more than 50 years. That’s a whole lot of water over the dam. He shakes his head in wonder over the changes that have taken place in the law and with technology in a half-century. Paul prides himself on being there when the “young lions” pop their head into his office to get the old man’s take on a complex issue.

The patriarch of The Ross Firm founded it first as a sole practitioner in 1980. He was joined by his wife, Heather Joy Ross, in 1984. It was this addition that created the foundation for the current iteration of the firm.

Paul is passionate about excellence, technology, creativity and personal growth. He’s excited by where the firm is going and sees the younger lawyers “taking The Ross Firm to a whole new level.”

Paul muses that when he came to Huron County from Toronto some 37 years ago, to work for the late E. Beecher Menzies, Q.C., in Clinton, Ontario, he could never have imagined the growth of his own law firm, first in Goderich and expanding into the City of Stratford, and now in The Town of Kincardine.

Heather Joy Ross LSM

Heather Ross headshot
bio
education

If you ask any lawyer at The Ross Firm “who’s the best lawyer in the shop,” the answer is Heather Joy Ross LSM.

Disciplined, ethically rigorous and highly intelligent, she is the definition of the consummate advocate. Throughout her career Heather has been prepared, knowledgeable and determined.

This approach earned her the reputation as a “go to” lawyer in the region for men and women alike. Spouses often raced to retain Heather after their relationship broke down. Whether this was because they wanted her on their side or to avoid having her against them, is a matter of some debate. It is this reputation and approach that forms the foundation of The Ross Firm today.

Heather has been a leader in her profession virtually from her first day at law school: she was a mentor to fellow students, and the recipient of three academic awards.

As a practicing lawyer, Heather tackled issues of domestic abuse and gender inequality and broke new ground when both subjects were not in the forefront of legal and judicial thinking. Heather describes herself as a warrior, and says that being a lawyer gave her the tools to help make change, particularly for women and girls in our society. However, her passion and big-picture thinking are larger than her legal practice. The original work she did to help establish safe houses for women in Huron County led to the creation of the Huron Women’s Shelter in Goderich.

She’s a founder of South West Region Women’s Law Association. Throughout her career and to the present she is a mentor to women lawyers, helping them realize their professional and personal aspirations.

As an academic, Heather was an adjunct professor of law, designing and teaching courses in ethics and family law practice and procedure at her alma mater, the Faculty of Law at The University of Western Ontario.

Heather was elected as a Bencher (a governor) of the Law Society of Upper Canada in 1999. She has contributed significantly to the regulation of the legal profession in Ontario, particularly in her work at the Law Society on the redrafting of the Rules of Professional Conduct, the creation of the standing committee on Equity and Aboriginal Issues, and her service on the Human Rights Monitoring Group. Three subsequent elections resulted in her being granted the honour of “Life Bencher”, a position she holds today, taking on an adjudicative role in lawyer and paralegal disciplinary hearings.

An engaged and insightful jurist, Heather shares her skill sitting as a Superior Court of Justice Deputy Judge of the Small Claims Court.

Her most recent role at The Ross Firm is that of General Counsel. She provides sage and cogent advice to the firm and its lawyers on matters of ethics, professional responsibility and practice management. There is no one better for the task.

When she’s not working, mentoring or leading, Heather finds satisfaction in creative outlets like interior design, painting and gardening. In many ways, both personally and professionally, Heather has made the whole world her canvas.
