Jenny Johnston, Lawyer
Jenny’s Service Areas
I practice exclusively in the area of family law, providing clients with assistance on matters including separation agreements, marriage contracts, cohabitation agreements, custody and access disputes, and matrimonial property issues. My family law practice also includes fertility law matters such as surrogacy agreements and egg donor agreements. I particularly value the opportunity to work with members of the LGBTQ community in my family and fertility law practice.
My approach is to pursue opportunities for a negotiated resolution that is fair and responsive to my client’s needs and circumstances. Where a negotiated resolution isn’t possible, I am a confident advocate for my clients in court, and have gathered experience litigating since my call to the bar in 2012.
Originally from Toronto, I spent nine years in Halifax, where I attended Dalhousie’s Schulich School of Law. I articled with Burke-Robertson LLP in Ottawa and worked with that firm for five years until we joined Mann Lawyers.
When not working, I am a keen reader, a podcast fan, a lover of the outdoors, and a mum, wife, and friend.
I would be happy to meet with you to discuss your current situation and your options for moving forward. If you need help with a family law or fertility law matter please call or email me.
