My name is Michelle R. Theberge; I am a family lawyer and a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada. I was called to the bar in 2005 and have practiced law in Toronto for over a decade. I recently moved to London, Ontario, with my family and am expanding my family law practice to the London area. Theberge Law (serving clients in London region, Komoka, St. Thomas, Mount Brydges, Strathroy, Ailsa Craig, St. Marys, Ingersoll, Dorchester, Ilderton and all of London region) is capable of meeting all the legal needs of families, individuals, businesses and estates. My law practice areas include family law, estates law and litigation.
Coming from parents who separated when I was young, one the main reasons I decided to become a family lawyer was to help families through the difficult process of separation and divorce. I have learned through my own experiences and through my years of family law practice, that is not the separation itself which harms spouses and children but the conflict which arises from issues of custody, access, property division and child/spousal support.

As part of my estates law practice, I regularly assist clients in estate planning so that their objectives are met and set out clearly in their Wills and Powers of Attorney. I also offer strategies to ensure that as little tax is paid as is necessary upon death. If you have been appointed as an estate trustee/executor I will advise you about your legal obligations/fiduciary responsibilities and provide guidance for administering the estate efficiently and effectively.

There are situations where aggressive advocacy is required and I am more than willing to go to court when necessary. As an experienced litigator, I have successfully represented numerous clients in the Superior Court of Justice, the B.C. Supreme Court and the Ontario Court of Appeal. Read on.
I offer estate litigation services in the event that a Will or Power of Attorney needs to be challenged, if a Passing of Accounts is required and/or is there are claims being advanced against the estate. Read on.
