Congratulations on reaching another milestone in your journey to becoming a lawyer

We pride ourselves on offering an exceptional articling experience. The lawyers at Sullivan Festeryga practice in a wide range of areas and our students are encouraged to explore each area individually and to focus on areas of particular interest.

We specialize in the area of civil litigation, primarily insurance defence litigation. We also have lawyers practicing criminal, family, corporate/commercial, estates, real estate and other types of law. As a student, you will be given first-hand experience and encouraged to attend trials and other court proceedings, mediations and discoveries.

Students articling with us have an opportunity to attend court and tribunal proceedings, learn how to incorporate a business, follow real estate transactions and complete many other tasks. Students also participate directly in the legal process by having carriage of Small Claims files from the beginning to either settlement or running the trial – a proven path for students to be able to develop their individual legal skills and interests.

Open Door Policy

Sullivan Festeryga has an “open door policy”. We encourage our students to ask questions and to take advantage of the knowledge and experience of our lawyers. The size of our firm allows us to get to know our students well on both a personal and a professional level.

The City of Hamilton

Hamilton is an exciting city in which to practice law. Students can discover this via the working and learning components of articling as well as by inserting themselves in the community. Students articling with us become members of the Hamilton Law Association, the Medical-Legal Society and the Hamilton Lawyers Club. They are encouraged to participate in seminars and social occasions with these excellent organizations.

We are looking for diverse, well-rounded candidates with enthusiasm for learning about the law and developing a career in Hamilton.
