“Leslie is upfront with clients about the process and genuinely looks to take care of them. She is great at taking what at first seem like disparate ideas and combining them to create valuable suggestions.”
Leslie is approachable, honest, and friendly. But most of all, she is fiercely dedicated to ensuring her clients understand and receive the best legal advice and service she can provide. Her commitment and integrity have helped Kirk Law Office earn its reputation as one of Ottawa’s most reliable firms.
Leslie’s specialty is helping buyers, sellers, and investors navigate the legal aspects of the real estate market, including rent-to- own/purchase-option transactions, multi-unit residential purchases and sales, new condominium purchases, and institutional and private (including RRSP-funded) mortgages on behalf of lenders and borrowers.
An Ottawa native, Leslie obtained her B.Sc. (Honours) in mathematics at Queen’s University before returning home to study law at the University of Ottawa. She was called to the Bar in Ontario in 2009 after completing her articles with the City of Ottawa’s legal department. She is a current member of the Canadian Bar Association, Ontario Bar Association, the Law Society of Upper Canada, and the County of Carleton Law Association (CCLA).
As a committed member of her community, Leslie volunteers with the Old Ottawa East Community Association and is a member of the Ellwood House II project development team.
