James Deep, Lawyer
During his 4 years of undergraduate study in Economics at York University, James became interested in the law. He studied intensively under the late Professor Meyer L. Burstein from the University of Chicago. It was Professor Burstein’s Law and Economics course which was the impetus of James’ legal career. After graduating from York University James studied Law at the University of Western Ontario. James graduated near the top of his class in 1992 and moved to Oakville in 1993. After completing articles in Toronto, James was called to the bar in 1994. James practised briefly on Bay Street, before setting up his Oakville office in the fall of 1994. James is married and a father of two boys.
James enjoys working with people. One of our clients recently told us that he “distrusts lawyers” and places his trust in our firm because “James is not a Lawyer but rather a Person who practices Law”. Thanks Mike!
