Education
ADMITTED TO THE BAR:
  • University of Manitoba (LL.B., 1991).
  • McGill University Faculty of Law (1988-1989)

Charlotte advises individuals and businesses in her primary practice areas of Corporate and Commercial Law, Business Law, and Wills, Estates and Trusts. Her expertise and insight have garnered the respect of her clients and colleagues as she frequently supports associates on corporate and commercial matters, as well as in the area of Wills, Estates and Trusts.

With more than 25 years of experience, Charlotte has helped hundreds of clients organize their finances to help put them at peace knowing everything will be handled accurately and respectfully when the time comes to settle their estates. While she works with many high net worth clients with complex estate needs, she offers services to a wide range of clients regardless of estate complexity.

Charlotte also works with small to mid-size businesses, counselling organizations on effective business structure, long-term planning and growth strategies including business aquisitions. She has developed a close relationship with the Business Development Bank of Canada to help offer her clients solutions for every stage of growth.

Charlotte understands that clients don’t always want to travel across town for help, so she works with many clients flexibly in North Eastern Winnipeg by offering services at Taylor McCaffrey LLP’s satellite office on Nairn Avenue.
