Durant Barristers

At Durant Barristers, our founder Erin Durant's goal is to practice law differently. Operating throughout Ontario but based in the Ottawa area, the firm is selective with potential clients. It is not a volume practice. The firm aims to provide efficient, practical and timely representation to a small roster of dedicated clients. By focusing on quality over quantity, the firm is always there when clients need urgent assistance.
