Lawrence D. Ryder

Lawrence has been practicing in all areas of matrimonial law in downtown Toronto and the Grey Bruce area for more than 40 years.

Lawrence has seen the devastation, both emotional and financial, that can occur to families as they battle through years of intense and expensive litigation and court attendances.

Lawrence is a Toronto trained Mediator and a Collaborative Law Lawyer.  He strongly believes that he can help parties and their children avoid the “litigation circus” by guiding them through the kinder, faster and less expensive Collaborative Law process, resulting in a fair settlement of all issues.

Lawrence services his clients in the Grey Bruce area including Port Elgin, Southampton, Kincardine, Paisley, Sauble Beach and Wiarton.
