Neil became a partner at Lakefield in January, 2022. Neil is passionate in his pursuit of family and justice, and came to us from Dalhousie University’s Schulich School of Law. Family is at the heart of everything he does. His practice is devoted to helping separating parents and partners at the beginning – or ending – stages of relationships. He is particularly interested in helping parents achieve fair resolutions on child custody and access matters, and assessing appropriate levels of support. Helping a father move back into his home after being forced out by a former spouse, and obtaining an equal, shared parenting arrangement after a father had been deprived of parenting time with his son for over a year are two of his greatest accomplishments.
Neil is amazing! He is compassionate, easy to work with, dedicated, and very understanding! He has done so much and has been able to do things I was told would never be possible by other lawyers and won it! I am so thankful to have him as our lawyer and on our side!Katelynn Smith
He’s been published multiple times in The Advocate, as well as CBA Saskatchewan. If you’re wondering who gets the dog in a divorce, Neil can help you. An active volunteer with the Canadian Bar Association, Saskatchewan Trial Lawyers’ Association, Pro Bono Law Saskatchewan, CLASSIC, Boys and Girls Clubs of Saskatoon, and past president of his community association, Neil truly lives the family values he advocates so passionately for. His only downfall is his early bedtime.
