Our legal services

Family Law

Family law can be an emotional topic to discuss.  Separating from a spouse can be one of the most difficult periods of a person's life.  Let us help you navigate through the process.  Our priority is to resolve your issues outside of court.  This can often be achieved through negotiation, mediation or Collaboration Practice. If court is necessary we will be the advocates in your corner.  We will represent your interests and ensure that you understand your rights and obligations at every step of the way.  Whether it is a conference, motion or trial, we have the knowledge and experience to be your legal counsel.

Wills and Powers of Attorney

People often overlook the importance of having valid and up-to-date wills and power of attorney documents.  We can meet with you to explore your wishes regarding your loved ones, your property and your backup decision makers.  We will listen and analyze your situation so that we can really understand what you want and what you need.  We will answer your questions, explain the process to you and give you our best advice. We can also work with your other professionals to create a cohesive estate plan for you and your family. 


Losing a loved one is never easy.  One thing that can make your task as an executor easier is working with an experienced estate lawyer.  Let us guide you through the process of estate administration. We can help you avoid common pitfalls you might encounter along the way.  We can advise you on issues such as taking an inventory of estate assets and the management of those assets.  We can explain your obligations and the importance of meticulous record keeping. We can assist you in preparing court documents and guide you through to the eventual distribution to beneficiaries.

We are ready to help you.

A little bit about us

Curtis Pineiro

Curtis is originally from Kingston, Ontario where he was raised and still has a number of friends and family members. After high school, Curtis studied Computer Science at Trent University where he was actively involved in student politics and various extracurricular activities. Upon graduation Curtis worked as Trent's Adaptive Technologist in the Student Accessibility Centre. During that time Curtis completed a graduate certificate from Cambrian College in Applied Learning Disability Studies. After five years at Trent, Curtis decided to chart a new path: he left Trent and Peterborough for law school. Curtis attended the accelerated law program at the University of Glasgow in Scotland, United Kingdom, where he graduated with merit. Upon his return to Canada, Curtis requalified with the National Committee on Accreditation and then successfully completed the bar exams. In 2013 Curtis was called to the bar of Ontario and he has provided high quality legal advice and service within the Peterborough community ever since.

Linda Brunton

Law Clerk
Linda is a graduate from the Legal Assistant program through Sir Sanford Fleming College in Peterborough. She graduated with Honours and was the recipient of the Peterborough Law Association Achievement Award and the Carswell Book Achievement Award. Shortly following her graduation, Linda was hired by the Ministry of Attorney General in the Lindsay Superior Court of Justice. Wishing to increase her legal knowledge, Linda then became a law clerk in a general law practice working mainly in the area of Family Law and Wills and Estates. She continued this work with a sole practitioner for over 16 years while advancing her knowledge through continuing education courses offered at the Institute of Law Clerks of Ontario. Linda transitioned back into Court Services with the Ministry of the Attorney General as a Courtroom Clerk working in both the Ontario Court of Justice and the Superior Court of Justice. During this time, she was promoted to a full-time, permanent Court and Client Representative and began working mainly in the Family Court office to take advantage of her considerable expertise in this area. She continued with the Ministry for several years before entering semi-retirement. At this time, Linda is thoroughly enjoying working alongside Curtis Pineiro in his law practice on a part-time basis and wishes to continue as his practice grows.

Alexis Rudat

Articling Student
Alexis is a graduate from the first cohort of the Trent/Swansea dual degree program at Trent University in Peterborough. During her time at Trent, she spearheaded various extracurricular activities on behalf of the program which include founding the Law & Arts/B.B.A Society in 2017. She then travelled overseas to Wales to attend the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law at Swansea University. While abroad, she actively participated in several law-related opportunities such as becoming the Alumni Relations Representative on behalf of the Canadian Law Society and volunteering on the Miscarriage of Justice Project. She graduated from Swansea with first-class honours and received the Oxford University Press Law Prize for achieving the highest average in her graduating class. Alexis has now obtained two Honours degrees: a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and a Bachelor of Laws. She continues to be a strong advocate for the Trent/Swansea program.
