The Law Office of Kate C. Anderson serves the Brockville region with a range of legal services to meet the needs of individuals and their families, focusing on the areas of family law, child protection, and wills and estates.
Our office understands that families have to think carefully about how to best allocate their finances to meet their family’s needs. Sometimes, those priorities must include paying a lawyer to resolve the issues they care about most. When they do, they want to ensure that their money is well spent on expertise, commitment, and skill.
Kate Anderson was born and raised in Brockville, and is a proud graduate of Brockville Collegiate Institute. She was a competitive swimmer with the Upper Canada Swim Club and continued her swimming at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, earning All-Canadian Varsity Athlete honours three years running.
She graduated from Mount Allison among the top of her class earning first class honours with distinction in Political Science. Kate then moved to the opposite coast, completing Bachelor of Laws at the University of Victoria in British Columbia. While there, she participated in exchanges with both the University of Limerick in Ireland and the University of Western Ontario. Kate articled with the London, Ontario full service firm of Cohen-Highley, before returning to Brockville to commence her legal career.
Kate was called to the Bar of Ontario in September 2002 and immediately began practicing law with the firm of Wilson/Evely, successfully arguing a motion the very next day. While with Wilson/Evely, Kate conducted a general practice focused on family law. In 2004, Kate accepted a position as full-time counsel for Family and Children’s Services in Brockville, where she advised and represented the agency on child protection matters before the Superior Family Court. This role required her to act on some of the most highly contentious and sensitive legal matters in family law, allowing her the ideal opportunity to hone her skills in both negotiation and litigation.
In 2013, Kate opened her own legal practice as a sole practitioner in Brockville’s downtown core. Kate lives in Brockville with her husband and three children.
