Personalized service is what most distinguishes our firm. Each of our clients personally meets with the lawyer responsible for their file. We form lasting relationships with our clients, where we have become their trusted family advisors.
We also work hand & glove with Evgeniya Pollock, Chartered Professional Accountant (Geoff Pollock’s partner in life, but not a partner in the law). Evgeniya’s firm ensures that our client’s tax needs are also looked after, as many transactions require reporting to the Canada Revenue Agency or may result in tax consequences.
We offer services in English, Mandarin, Russian, Hindi, and Nepali.

Nisha Subba, J.D.
Nisha is a fifth year associate whose practice centers on Trusts, Estates, and Real Estate. She received her J.D. from Queen’s University and is a graduate of the Criminal Justice and Public Policy program at the University of Guelph.
Nisha feels fortunate that her areas of practice allow her to personally interact with her clients and assist them through important decisions and milestones in their lives. Nisha grew up with a large family, just one sister, but eleven cousins that she regards as brothers and sisters. The strength of these bonds was a great support to her when her family immigrated to Canada when she was eighteen.
While she is forever grateful for being welcomed into Canada when her family needed it most, living in various countries during her formative years also provided Nisha the invaluable opportunity to meet and form lasting bonds with people from diverse backgrounds. After graduating from university, she built on these experiences by moving to South Korea for two years to teach. She is fortunate to have taught young children and have seen her efforts rewarded with positive results. The desire to continue doing good for people is something that has greatly influenced her decision to pursue a legal career.
