Jenn McMillan

Partner

Jennifer McMillan has been arguing cases since she was very young. She says that as a child, she enjoyed the challenge of bringing someone to her way of thinking. When she realized there was a job where she could do that "all day, every day," she thought that practicing law was a perfect fit.

Jenn believes in educating her clients. Particularly during what can be a very challenging time, this brings confidence and restores an element of control for them. As a family lawyer, Jenn empowers and enables her clients to determine their future.

Whether she is acting for a father to obtain custody of his young son, arguing for supervised access, acting for a wife to secure support after a long-term relationship, or a parent seeking to restrict or terminate the other parent’s access, each day is a new opportunity to successfully advocate on behalf of her clients to achieve their goals.

Jenn also acts for grandparents, family members or foster parents who are seeking custody of children in their care; these cases often result in adoptions, which are bright spots in what can often be a challenging process.

Jenn’s caseload also includes the successful resolution of significant property cases dealing with large farming operations and other businesses, as well as income determination cases where expert evidence is employed to prove income.

In her community, Jenn is the President of the Huron Law Association and governor of the Federation of Law Associations of Ontario plenary, the Co-President of the South West Region Women’s Law Association. She is the immediate Past President of the Board of Directors of Victim Services of Huron County. She is also a Past President of the Huron Perth Community Legal Clinic.
