Welcome to Thomas Cooke Law Office
Tom was born in Geraldton, in Northern Ontario, and spent his formative years in the north. He went to High School in Timmins, Ontario, where he spent three summers working underground in the mines. He left the north to attend the University of Toronto, and, while he thought he might return to the north to practice law, he never did. Tom’s wife may have had something to do with this! Tom and his wife have raised three children in Georgina, all of them attending local Public and High schools. Tom has practiced law in Keswick since 1986 - 36 years and counting! His practice focuses on four main areas: Real Estate Law, focusing on residential purchases, sales and refinances; Wills and Powers of Attorney, where his interest in tax rules and investments serves his clients’ interests well; Criminal Defence work, where his experience includes 11 years as a Prosecutor for the Government of Canada; and Estate Administration.
