Here are a few comments from clients, lawyers, Judges, co-workers and community leaders received upon my retirement from the practice of law.

Thank you for 35 years of sage advise and friendship.

You have been an integral part of our business and personal lives while in Kingston and through our long transition into retirement. When we started out naively in business you put us on the right track which has been the foundation to our success in our business life.


I am so grateful to you for helping me get through a recent, difficult, period in my life. You just couldn’t understand how soothing it was for me to hear your slow, steady, comforting words and sensible questions. But you must know. A person, lacking your compassion, gentleness, kindness, could neither provide nor demonstrate that sort of solace. MS

You have taught me many things over the years and for that I will be forever grateful. I think in addition to your legal mind and expertise, the characteristic I have enjoyed the most us your consistency in always being the gentleman.

It has truly been my honour to know you and to have worked with you. PB

We feel unbelievably fortunate to have known you. I can’t thank you enough for the guidance, counsel and legal assistance you gave us in good and not so great times – all delivered with wisdom, common sense and humour. SJ

I’ve always respected & admired you. It was always a privilege to work with you & for you. I wish you all the best & hope you enjoy your new adventure. PG

I have known Wally for over 40 years and I can truthfully say – he hasn’t changed at all. He has a great sense of humour, a quick wit and a desire to “do the right thing” whether for his clients, his staff, his peers or his community. I am sure Wally will continue to contribute to the greater good during his retirement. All the best Wally! SE

Your experience and vast contributions to the city of Kingston and its citizens cannot be overstated and will be difficult, if not impossible to replicate, let alone replace. FL
