SullivanLaw leaf bags: Insert your own pun


For a couple of years now, I’ve wanted to get some SullivanLaw lawn waste/leaf bags, and I’m happy to say that this year we’ve finally done it.

The best part? No, not seeing my name on everyone’s lawn (though I admit that’s kind of nice). It was that my family and staff and I spent a couple of afternoons and early evenings dropping them off to homes in the neighbourhood, and ended up meeting some clients and people we would never otherwise have spoken to. It made for a nice sense of community – and at the end of the day, I tend to think that a good family and civil lawyer functions best when one is connected to the community.

We still have some bags left – if you’d like some, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

From ADVOCATE DAILY: Timothy Sullivan profiled


Sullivan seeks efficient solutions in family law, civil litigation

This week, Timothy N. Sullivan of SullivanLaw was profiled in Advocate Daily.  From the article:

Ottawa family and civil litigation lawyer Timothy N. Sullivan is a passionate advocate who works with clients to find efficient and economical solutions to legal problems.

“I like to think that I’m taking on some of the difficulty from clients so that they don’t have to worry about it, but I work closely with them to craft the best possible solution for them,” he tells “They have enough going on in their lives. I try to take some of the worry off their plate.”

Sullivan, principal at SullivanLaw, focuses on civil litigation and family law cases that involve the division of assets.

His civil litigation work is primarily in business, such as lien and debt collection, as well as other commercial disputes. He also takes on what he refers to as personal actions, including personal injury cases.

“These cases also involve a client who has a problem to solve and there are often answers to it, but it’s a matter of getting it fulfilled with the best outcome for the client,” he says.

Presenting at the Solo and Small Firm Conference 2014

Can you stump the experts?

The Law Society of Upper Canada is holding its annual Solo and Small Firm Conference in Toronto this week, and they’ve invited me to be a panelist for Friday’s breakfast session, ‘Stump the Experts’.

I’m looking forward to reconnecting with friends and colleagues, and meeting new ones.

And I hope I don’t get stumped.
