Legal And Other Services
At Walk-In Notary we do one thing very well. Notarize documents. That’s all we do. However, people often like our service so much that they ask us if we also do other things, like prepare wills or translate documents. The bad news is that we don’t. In particular, we do not provide legal advice at Walk-In Notary. The good news it that we know people that do. Please review some of these service providers below.

Joanne believes in fairness and access to justice. Her goal is to provide local, relevant and supportive legal services in labour and employment, disability and discrimination and veterinary law. A graduate from Osgoode Hall Law School and called to the bar in January 2020, Joanne spent 15 years working in the academic field prior to returning to law school. She worked alongside veterinarians in a variety of roles and gained a deep respect and understanding for the needs of the profession. She was involved with her union as a Steward and Executive member, as well as being active on the Job Evaluation, Grievance and Bargaining committees. In her personal life, she has spent the last 10 years helping her partner raise their children, three of whom have indigenous heritage and have special needs.
