DURHAM REGION'S FIRST LAW FIRM
As one of the oldest law firms in Canada, Creighton Law LLP was established in 1885. We have served the community for over 130 years because of our ability to provide efficient and effective comprehensive legal advice and services to our clients as well as adhering to the highest professional standards in serving our clients throughout the Durham Region. We are proud of the history and success of our firm and the high quality of legal services we have provided to generations of families in Oshawa and surrounding communities.
As a full-service firm, we are able to provide assertive and effective advocacy and strategic advice to our clients for all of their legal needs. If, for example, you come to us with a family matter and find that you need to redraft your Will or sell your matrimonial home, your Family Lawyer can refer you to colleagues just across the hall.
