Our Penetanguishene Lawyers

Our Penetang office, located in the Penetang Mall, is a vibrant office presently consisting of two associates, two partners and our legacy founder John Gignac. We serve our clients’ real estate and, wills and estates needs. We also provide representation to our clients for other areas of law that may require more specialized focus.

John Gignac, with deep roots in the Penetanguishene area, exemplifies the firm’s commitment to community.  He served as Chair of Penetanguishene General Hospital Board, Chair of the Huronia Hospital Alliance, and as a member of the boards of many community organizations. John Gignac, who has been called the heart of the firm, initially felt felt faxes would be a fad and they didn’t need a machine, opining that the partners could pick them up at the copy shop daily.  While our technology is now 21st century, John contributed enormously to the culture and success of the firm with his strong legal and client relationship skills. Our partner Suzanne Poole is a hometown person who practices real estate and wills and estates law.
