Bob Pettitt, Bill Schwarz and Carly Hills
Lawyers serving Cambridge, Ontario and surrounding area.
We (Bob Pettitt and Bill Schwarz) studied at McMaster University (Bob) and at the University of Western Ontario (Bill), and later met at the University of Toronto Law Faculty where we each graduated with a Doctor of Jurisprudence.
We articled with two prestigious Bay Street law firms (Bill at the firm of Gardiner Roberts and Bob at the firm of White, Bristol). We were both invited back to practice at our respective firms and worked there for about two years.
In 1969, after relatively exhaustive research we chose Galt, Preston and Hespeler in which to locate. The towns had a feeling of community, akin to our origins of Regina (Bill) and Hamilton (Bob).
40 Years of Evolution and Stability
On September 1, 2009, Bob and Bill welcomed Carly Hills as an associate and on January 1, 2010 Carly became a partner.
Carly studied at York University and went to law school at the University of New Brunswick. She completed her articles in Bracebridge and was called to the Bar in 2007. She is now happy to call Cambridge home.
Carly has quickly become a member of the Cambridge community and is happy to accept new clients and referrals. Carly practices in the areas of business law, wills and estate planning, real estate and family law.
We built our practice on our commitment to have a relationship with our clients.
We have always tried to be a "relationship" firm rather then a "transactional" firm. We mean that we try very hard to be all things to you. We don't only want to act for you in a single transaction; we want to represent your business, do your estate planning, act for you when you purchase or sell your home; help you in difficult times... and all of the other necessary times you need a lawyer.
