A native (and resident) of Orléans, Jon has practiced with Augustine Bater Binks since his call to the bar in 2007. Jon practices in the areas of civil litigation, particularly personal injury and construction law, and family law. Jon is a tenacious advocate for his clients, unafraid to go to court when necessary but equally willing to negotiate a resolution when one can be obtained at lower cost to his clients. Jon has conducted trials in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Small Claims Court, and has argued appeals at the Ontario Court of Appeal.
Jon is the chairperson of the Ottawa chapter of the Lawyers Feed the Hungry program, which serves a warm meal to the clients of the Ottawa Mission on the third and fourth Thursdays of every month. To date, Ottawa Lawyers Feed the Hungry has served over 50,000 meals to Ottawa’s neediest residents, raising over $200,000.00 in the process. For his work with Lawyers Feed the Hungry, Jon was the 2017 recipient of the Gordon F. Henderson award, given by the Carleton County Law Association to an Ottawa lawyer who has made a significant contribution to the welfare of the community by performing charitable services on behalf of the community.
Jon is a past chair of the Ontario Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division – East, and past member of the OBA’s Family Law Section Executive. He is currently an elected member of the governing Council of the Ontario Bar Association and is a frequent speaker and chair of continuing legal education programs.
