Ram Shankar

Barrister, Solicitor and Notary Public

Ram Shankar

After receiving my Masters of Law from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I worked on humanitarian and development issues internationally for over 23 years. Since opening my practice in Owen Sound and Port Elgin, I have been a huge advocate for mediation and out of court settlements. I believe that many issues can be settled with a collaborative effort between lawyers and parties. Family, Criminal, Civil Litigation, Estates, Wills and Real Estate are just a few of the areas that round out my legal expertise, making me a versatile choice as a lawyer. I regularly practice in the Walkerton, Owen Sound, Goderich and Collingwood court houses, in the Ontario and Superior Courts of Justices. I am extremely committed to carefully LISTENING to each client’s needs and fearlessly, zealously and effectively representing your needs to the Court by thorough preparation, research and presentation. I am passionate about my work, and to achieve results that YOU, the client, is happy with. I am extremely quick to respond to client communications and to ensure that you are stress free and feel confident about your case. I look forward to hearing from you.
