Margaret’s practice encompasses a broad range of civil and employment litigation. She provides individuals with strategic legal advice at every stage of their career. Margaret’s primary focus is the successful resolution of your matter- on your terms.
Margaret’s area of focus is employment law and she regularly advises employees on a variety of legal matters from the negotiation of employment offers to wrongful terminations, constructive dismissals, human rights disputes and workplace sexual harassment and assault claims.
Margaret also advises companies on employment-related matters, including compliance with applicable workplace laws as well as the drafting and negotiation of employment agreements for prospective candidates.
Margaret will work to get you the result you are looking for in the most efficient manner possible and supports the use of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms in order to do so.
