About Areta

Areta focuses her practice on conflict resolution and litigation in the areas of estates, trusts, capacity, powers of attorney conflicts, substitute decision-making and fiduciary accounting. She also has a niche practice in elder health law, offering advice and support with issues such as medically-assisted dying, dementia, nursing home admissions, LHIN appeals, and health privacy breaches.

Areta’s approach is to help clients navigate and quickly resolve legal issues around estates and aging so they can focus on their health and family. She offers compassionate, thoughtful guidance. When situations escalate, she remains a strong, steadfast advocate.

Her extensive experience in media and crisis communication prior to her law career ensures that Areta’s clients receive well-researched, realistic, big picture analysis and strategic legal advice.

Particularly when supporting professionals or organizations with elder law/health law issues, Areta’s ability to strategize around both legal responses and messaging provides a unique advantage.

Areta is legal correspondent for the Alzheimer caregiver website, her column sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Society of Toronto. She has written for the Trusts and Estates and the Health Law section publications of the Ontario Bar Association and she participates in public speaking on various legal issues related to her practice area.
