Our Smiths Falls office is located in the “Old Post Office” on the corner of Russell St. and Market St. Our office is a heritage site, built in 1894 by the Ministry of Public Works at a cost of $18,416.00. The plans of Thomas Fuller, Dominion Architect, included heavy masonry, steep roofs and wide semi-circular arches for the windows and doors. The postal use of the building was discontinued in 1964 when the Roman Catholic Church acquired the building and used it as a high school. In 1977, our law firm moved into the building.
In addition to our law office in Smiths Falls, we also have a branch office in Athens, Ontario, to better serve our clients in the Leeds and Grenville area.
