Bernadette McCartney

I was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1990.

I am a former Editor of the Ottawa Law Review and was appointed as a Clerk to the Ontario High Court of Justice and the Ontario Court (General Division) from 1990 – 1991.

I have appeared at various levels of courts and tribunals and have also participated in alternative dispute resolution practices, including many mediations.

Since 2004, I have been a sole practitioner in St. Catharines, in a practice devoted primarily to matrimonial and family law.
