Heather Austin-Skaret, Partner
My practice includes estate planning and administration as well as commercial and residential real estate work. I value my long standing relationships with some of Ottawa’s leading real estate agents and mortgage brokers. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with others and enjoy giving presentations and seminars.
Over the years, I have developed extensive experience in the area of estate planning and administration, which allows me to assist clients at some of their most difficult times. I am constantly updating my knowledge as a member of S.T.E.P. and the Estate Planning Council.
As a true Maritimer, born in Springhill, Nova Scotia, I, of course, headed west. I started my university career at the University of Saskatchewan and then started inching my way back east, stopping to attend and complete my undergraduate at the University of Manitoba in 1990 with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours). I then moved to Ottawa in 1990 to begin my formal legal education, earning my law degree from the University of Ottawa in 1994. I was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1995.
My practice started as an articling student with the firm Gold Gulliver, which evolved to Gold Gilbert Mann and then Mann & Associates. In late 2003, I helped form our current partnership, Mann Lawyers LLP, where we together with our great staff and skilled associates offer exceptional legal services to our clients.
When I am not at our office, I enjoy spending time with family at home or the cottage or taking out my frustrations on the volleyball court with Women & Sport.
If I can help you with real estate matters or estate planning needs or estate issues, please give me a call or send me an email.
