Sharon McKim-Ryan, Associate

Sharon McKim-Ryan
Sharon is a senior lawyer at the firm practicing in Family Law, Wills & Estates and Civil Litigation. She is the head of the firm’s Wills & Estates Practice Group.

Sharon’s practice encompasses all areas of family law including custody, access, child and spousal support, division of family property, divorce, separation agreements, parenting agreements, marriage contracts and cohabitation agreements. Sharon is a passionate advocate for her clients and has appeared before all levels of court in the province.

When couples separate, they often need advice in many areas of law. Sharon assists her clients with selling or transferring their home should this be necessary. Sharon also assists her family clients in the preparation of their Wills and Powers of Attorney, which is an important step following separation.

Sharon is the mother of two young children and is certainly kept busy out of the office. When she’s not working, she can usually be found at the dance studio or the hockey rink. Go Eagles! She enjoys running and usually finds the time to squeeze in at least 25km each week with her Irish Setter, Quinn.
