Hi, I’m Bill Rogers. Divorce and separation can be very distressing, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. I have the expertise to help you get there, while making sure your rights are protected. My experience in family law has taught me three things: 1. where possible, stay out of court; 2. be honest about everything, including money (judges always find out the truth anyway); and 3. if you have kids, be willing to support the development and maintenance of their relationship with your ex. (Judges want to see that. So do kids.)
My track record speaks for itself -- I have done several successful family law trials in Superior Court, and I won a major family law victory at the Ontario Court of Appeal in 2014 (McConnell v. Huxtable) preventing the imposition of a new (and unfair) two-year deadline on property claims by unmarried spouses. My undergraduate degree is from Trinity College, University of Toronto, in music and philosophy. My law degree is from Queen’s, where I won several academic prizes. I'm also a musician, amateur stand-up comedian, and award-winning journalist published in The Lawyers Weekly, National Post, and The Globe and Mail. Contact me if you want to talk about your situation. My info is below.

"Bill Rogers is the ultimate in a great family lawyer. He is intelligent, thoughtful, resourceful and has a wonderful sense of humour...something badly needed when you are going through a divorce. His rates are reasonable because you are paying for him, not for the rent and flashy offices of a stuffy Bay St firm."
