Diverse Backgrounds. Broad Experience.
We, at Mann Lawyers, are extremely proud of the staff that provides such great support for us and for our clients. We hope that you will come to appreciate them as much as we do whenever you have occasion to work with one of them.
For the administrative needs of the firm, we have come to depend on and truly appreciate the work of Anne Schmidtke as Finance Manager, Sandra MacLeod as Operations Manager, Sue Oliver, the cheerful face of Mann Lawyers at reception, and Susan Down, Andrew Irish and Janet West-Balon who help out Anne in accounting. We are also happy to have Martha Jeacle and Lauren Miller with us to help out Sandra with operations.
Carol McCooeye, Shannon O’Toole, Tracy McIntosh and Wendy Sauriol, law clerks, provide their expertise and hard work in our wills and estates department. Ellie Wright supports Heather Austin-Skaret in running her busy practice as well as helping out in the real estate department while Liam Farrell supports Ted Mann with all administrative tasks. Our corporate department needs are well met by clerks, Christine McLeod-Richards, Goretti Pernitzky, Gayle Seguin and Wendy Murphy, with great support from Jennifer McDonald and Sarah MacDonald. Avvy Laing, Brenda Bakker, Cathy Mandzuk and Debi Parker provide invaluable assistance to the family law group. The pressure cooker of real estate (residential, commercial, and development) is well and ably handled by our clerks, Eric Kaiser, Ning Dai, Linda Kane, Heather Kelly, Kristine Kerwin and Kim Milani. Melissa Valliquette supports Ken Smith in the Perth office. Finally, our litigation department is proud of the support and administrative guidance it gets from Joyce Gordon, Gail Baker-Gregory, Mary Neill, Samantha Senuik, Allie Splane-Rivest and Julie Strike.
All in all, we are very fortunate to have, in our staff, a group of talented and committed individuals who believe in the principles of the firm, including the desire to allow our clients to feel heard and supported, and who approach their jobs in a professional and competent manner – we are indeed very lucky.
