Family & Civil Lawyer Markham

At Baker Doodnauth, our family and civil lawyers are proud to be supporting the Markham community. We are committed to assisting our clients in Markham for their needs on legal advice, representation, and litigation.

Family Law

Some of the most challenging conflicts we face are those coming from within our families and personal relationships.


The decision to divorce or separate from your spouse or common-law partner can be particularly difficult. Not only can it be an emotionally and mentally stressful time, but if you make even the smallest of mistakes during a separation or divorce, it could cost you and even affect the quality of life for your children.


That is why it is important to have a divorce or family lawyer by your side. At Baker Doodnauth, our family lawyers in Markham strive to offer an effective and positive result for clients, all with minimal stress. We advise and act in your best interests so you can move forward with your life after a divorce, separation, or custody battle.

Our family lawyers in Markham are here to advise and represent you on cases involving:

  • Custody & Access

  • Domestic Contracts

  • Separation Agreements

  • Property Division

  • Separation & Divorce

  • Spousal Support

  • Common Law Spouses

  • Child Protection

Practice Areas

Civil Litigation

Civil litigation is the process of taking someone else to court over an issue or incident. It is sometimes referred to as a lawsuit or suing someone. 


There are many reasons a person may wish to make a lawsuit against another party. These may include cases involving:

  • Breach of Contract

  • Commercial Litigation (debt collection, shareholder disputes etc.)

  • Custody and Access

  • Employment Law (wrongful dismissal, discrimination, harassment etc.)

  • Estate Litigation (having no will, undue influence etc.)

  • Human Rights Claims

  • Insurance Claims

Even if you wish to make a lawsuit, that does not mean your case will go straight to court. In fact, litigation often begins by consulting a civil lawyer and making an exchange of communication (usually letters) between both parties as they try to seek a resolution. If a resolution cannot be found, a series of steps will be taken that may eventually lead to a resolution in the court.


Whether you have received correspondence from a lawyer or wish to make a case against another party, our team of skilled civil litigation lawyers in Richmond Hill are here to assist you. We specialize in civil litigation and have the experience you need to get the best outcome possible.

Criminal Law

Have you or a loved one been charged with a criminal offence in Markham? If you have, we strongly recommend you seek legal counsel.


At Baker Doodnauth, our criminal lawyers in Markham offer a comprehensive, aggressive, and effective approach to your criminal case. With our many years of experience fighting for our clients in court, we are here to help secure you the best possible chances of freedom and a better future. 


Our criminal lawyers in Markham have successfully taken on cases involving:

  • Assault, including sexual assault

  • Driving Offences

  • Fraud & Theft

  • Bail Hearings

  • Drug charges

  • Young Offenders

  • Break & Enter

  • Mischief

  • Weapon Offences

 Personal Injury

If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you should know that you might be able to seek compensation. This compensation is designed to cover your damages, help you recover, and assist you in moving forward with your life.


Personal injury claims are often made for accidents or incidents involving:

  • Car accident injuries

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Slip and fall injuries

  • Dog attacks

  • Medical Malpractice

  • Product failures

  • Long-term disability benefits

While a successful personal injury claim can significantly help you to move forward after a traumatic incident, they can be difficult to obtain without the support of a personal injury lawyer. If you choose to take on your claim or appeal the decision alone, you should expect to gather evidence, battle insurance companies and lawyers, and even potentially fight for your claim in court. 


However, with our personal injury lawyers in Markham by your side, we will take that stress off your shoulders with our experienced help. During your claims process, our personal injury lawyers in Markham work hard to make sure you are fully informed and are properly represented so that you can get the compensation you deserve.
