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.
