In his spare time: he enjoys exercising, the outdoors, and spending time with his family and dog

I particularly enjoy the human side of law. Because the situations my clients are in, are usually quite emotional and complicated, I explain the process in a manner that is simple and puts them at ease.

We were made to feel valued and heard. Integrity, competence and a passion for justice definitely describes Onyx. They are also caring, compassionate and have a good sense of humour.

Thanks to Onyx’s straightforward approach, this litigation was resolved with the best outcome for myself and my children. Although this ordeal was emotionally trying, we can get on with our lives, without added worry and stress.

I chose the right law firm and I know our future is on the proper course because of Onyx. I wouldn’t hesitate to tell anyone who needs good legal representation to take my words to heart.
