Timothy N. Sullivan

Based in Ottawa with a practice covering Eastern and Southern Ontario, Timothy N. Sullivan has been practicing law since his call to the Bar in 2002.  His focus is on family law and civil litigation, and Wills & Estates.

Timothy’s approach is to work with clients to craft appropriate, economical solutions.  This often means avoiding court in favour of a negotiated resolution to a problem. However, when a negotiated agreement is not possible, Timothy does not hesitate to argue his client’s position in court.

SullivanLaw’s family practice includes marriage and cohabitation agreements, separation agreements and parenting agreements, as well as Wills, Estates and Powers of Attorney for Personal Care and Property.

SullivanLaw’s civil practice includes commercial litigation, estate litigation and personal injury actions, from contract disputes to employment-related matters to slip-and-fall injuries.

Timothy has argued cases in Toronto, Windsor, Cornwall, Belleville, Brockville, St. Thomas, Kingston, Perth and L’Orignal as well as in Ottawa.  He has presented cases to the Ontario Divisional Court, the Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Justice, the Landlord and Tenant Tribunal, the Ontario Municipal Board, and the Board of Education.  He graduated from the University of Windsor’s Faculty of Law and from the Faculty of Graduate Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University.


“Our combination of compromise, common sense, pragmatism and principle have resulted in excellent outcomes for our clients.  In our experience, doing things right the first time saves money, time and headache in the long run – and we strive to make the process as painless as possible.”
