Don is a lifelong resident of Elgin County.  He comes from a long line of farmers and manages to balance a busy law practice with cash-crop farming.  A fixture in Elgin County, Don has a well-established clientele of professionals and business owners.  He strives to do the very best for his clients regardless if they are seeking advice on their very first home purchase or restructuring a large corporation.


Don obtained his law degree from the University of Windsor in 1993.  Prior to attending law school, he obtained an Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree from McMaster University.  He is a member of the Elgin Law Association.


Outside of the office, Don is very involved in the St. Thomas community.  He is the current Chair of the Endowment Fund Committee of the St. Thomas Elgin Public Art Centre and a trustee of Knox Presbyterian Church.  Don is a founding trustee and current Chair of the Kettle Creek Environmental Trust Fund.  He is also a member of the St. Thomas Chamber of Commerce  and served two terms on the board of directors of St. Thomas Energy Inc.


Don lives in St. Thomas with his wife, Maureen, and their three children.  Don is proud of his children who are all involved in competitive sports including soccer, hardball, hockey, horseback riding, golf and volleyball.   When he is not practising law or farming, Don enjoys the odd game of golf as well as thoroughbred breeding and racing.
