Lawrence S. Pascoe

About Me

Welcome! I am Lawrence (Laurie) Pascoe and I have been practising law in Ottawa, Ontario since 1977. Providing competent and value-added legal services is extremely important to me, but in addition, I am committed to delivering products that are innovative and client-oriented.

My website also has a lot of information on how I operate, and what my fees are. It explains what information a lawyer needs from his clients to advise them – so it is not just to educate my client, but to allow them to save time (and therefore money) by gathering the information before our meeting.

Meet the new family law lawyer

Some years ago, LAWPro Magazine asked Lawrence and four other lawyers from across the province to discuss the state of Family Law in Ontario. Click on the image to read the full article.
