Lou-Anne Farrell

Lou-Anne Farrell was called to the Ontario Bar in 1988 after graduating from the University of Western Ontario law school with distinction. After several years as an associate and then as a partner at Lerners and at Advocates LLP, she joined FPLaw as counsel in January of 2016.

Ms. Farrell practices in the area of estate litigation, including will challenges, spousal and dependent’s claims, removal of executors and contested estate audits, as well as Power of Attorney litigation, Capacity litigation, including the appointment of guardians, and Breach of Trust claims. She also acts as a mediator in estate-related disputes.

Ms. Farrell is a former Chair of the Trusts and Estates Section of the Ontario Bar Association and has written and spoken frequently on issues related to Estate Litigation. She is a former Alternate Chair of the Ontario Review Board, the tribunal which conducts annual reviews of persons found not criminally responsible for criminal offences by reason of a mental disorder.

F. Paul Morrison Partner

Paul practices at the small Aylmer based law firm of Gloin Hall & Shields, where his practice is what he calls a “door practice”, meaning, whatever walks through the door that isn’t criminal or family.  That usually means a lot of real estate, corporate/commercial law, and wills and estates.

While attending law school Paul was a researcher for professor Richard H. McLaren, in the areas of commercial law, secured transactions, bankruptcy law, alternative dispute resolution and sport law. This gave Paul the opportunity to research and write original commentary for publication in a number of legal books including Secured Transactions in Personal Property in Canada and the Ontario Annotated Personal Property Security Act.

Prior to law school Paul operated an e-commerce solutions company and worked in the hobby industry and as a lay-minister.

When not at work, Paul plays bass guitar at his church, and has all sorts of fun with his two boys, aged 5 and 2.
