Nathan Spaling

Nathan Spaling

Nathan completed his college diploma in Social Service Work at Mohawk College (Hamilton) before he completed his undergraduate degree at UOIT (Oshawa) and finally his law degree at the University of Windsor.

The leadership skills gained during his varsity hockey career, along with the community-focus which is entrenched in his small town roots, has translated into Nathan becoming a forward thinker in the way that business is conducted to ensure that both clients receive an exemplary/personable service experience and his professional obligations/standards are being satisfied.

Along with his practice areas in real estate, estates and private business corporate law, over the past two and a half years he has embraced the role of an innovator as he has led a multidisciplinary team of experts, specialists and/or opinion leaders who have digitized certain legal processes (along with community partners such as the University of Waterloo) which initially improves the substitute-decision-making processes and other services provided for clients. In-turn, this understanding puts Nathan in a great position to not only protect his clients who may have ranging degrees of cognitive vulnerabilities or conditions but also to tap into this network in order to provide his clients with the best outcome and to advocate for other lawyers within the profession to prepare for the same awareness/sensitivity.

Among other things, Nathan is currently a member of the Ontario Bar Association, the Waterloo Law Association, the Waterloo-Wellington Estate Planning Committee, Grand River Hospital – Grand Ride Committee Member – and currently lives with his family in Milton where the cycling/hockey is especially great.

Should you or someone you know have a legal question, a referral opportunity, similar interests or questions for Nathan, he welcomes the opportunity to reach out and speak to him.
