Michael P. Reilly
Senior & Managing Partner
Michael is the senior and managing partner at Reilly and Partners. He has been certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a specialist in family law. An accomplished litigator with more than 25 years of legal experience, he currently restricts his practice to family law. Michael has successfully argued cases at every judicial level in Ontario, including the Court of Appeal.
Notwithstanding his success in the courtroom, family law often requires a less adversarial approach and Michael remains focused on early resolution.
Mediation should always be seriously considered, especially by those who may choose or have no alternative but to represent themselves in a family law dispute. Michael is a family mediator who not only has an extensive background in family law, but also mediation training and over 10 years of mediation experience. In fact, Michael has successfully resolved over 90% of the cases in which he has acted as a mediator. Although a lawyer is not required to participate in the mediation process, independent legal advice at the conclusion of the process is strongly recommended.
Michael spent two years in undergraduate studies at the University of Toronto, before accepting an offer for early admission into Osgoode Hall Law School. He graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1990 and worked in a mid size litigation firm in downtown Toronto for the next few years. In 1994 he started his own law firm in the east end of Toronto. Over the next 20 years, he added 4 lawyers and relocated the firm to its current location in Pickering Village, Ajax.
Michael is a devoted family man who is married with three children. He has been actively involved in the community for over 30 years including coaching, refereeing and sponsoring youth sports.
