Get to know us!
Angle Law began, like most things, as just an idea – Lauren had a big idea of building a law firm that would be able to respond to the needs of individuals and families who find themselves, maybe for the first time, in need of a lawyer. With just a single office in a shared space, Angle Law opened its doors in 2016.
Since 2016, Lauren has been joined by two more lawyers, Alexandra and Shelby, and a number of dedicated support clerks. We pride ourselves on being a forward-thinking team who can support you with all your legal needs.
It is hard to believe the changes and growth that have occurred since Lauren had this big idea a mere four years ago – but it just proves what they say: life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
LET'S WORK TOGETHER.
MEET LAUREN M. ANGLE
Lauren is an approachable, down-to-earth, lawyer and the founder of Angle Law. Since starting to practice law in Ottawa in 2012, Lauren has focused on Family Law, Real Estate and Wills/Estate Law. Lauren was raised in Niagara Falls, attending high school at A.N. Myer, before spending some time in Waterloo where she attended the University of Waterloo, and then in Ottawa where she attended law school at the University of Ottawa. After beginning her practice in Ottawa, Lauren returned to Niagara in 2013 where she founded Angle Law, and the rest is history.
Outside the office (or sometimes in it!) you might find Lauren meditating, practicing yoga, running or hanging out with her son and dog, Lady.
MEET SHELBY SYMON
Shelby is a friendly, knowledgeable Family Law and Criminal Defence lawyer who joined Angle Law in 2021 after beginning her career in St. Catharines. She received her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from the University of Guelph in 2016 and her Juris Doctor from Western Law in 2019.
Since settling in Niagara, Shelby has enthusiastically embraced life in wine country. Outside of the office, Shelby can often be found on the basketball court, in an arena, or hiking with her canine companion.
MEET ALEXANDRA COHAN
Alexandra is incredibly personable and approachable, and brings these qualities to her role as your lawyer. Alexandra was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. After completing her Bachelor of Arts Honours at Queens University, Alexandra moved to Melbourne, Australia where she completed her legal education at Monash University in 2013. Alexandra practiced law in Australia prior to returning to Canada to pursue her passion for Family Law.
In her spare time, Alexandra enjoys outdoor running, baking and spending time with her family.
Christina is the lead Real Estate Clerk at Angle Law and one of the friendliest people you’ll meet. She has been a Law Clerk for over 14 years, working in the areas of Real Estate, Wills/Estates and Corporate Law, and has been an essential part of the Angle Law team since 2017. Christina takes great pride in going above and beyond to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
When she’s not in the office, you will find Christina spending time with her boyfriend, two amazing daughters and their spunky dogs (there’s 2!)
Bonnie is Lauren’s Family Law Clerk and prides herself on being a listening ear. Bonnie was born and raised in the Niagara Region and obtained her law clerk designation while living in Hamilton, Ontario. Bonnie joined Angle Law in 2020 and has been a wonderful fit. Bonnie works exclusively in Family Law, applying her knowledge and expertise and sharing her compassion and empathy with her clients.
Bonnie and her husband Mark share five amazing young adults in their blended family and in their free time enjoy kayaking, hiking and hanging out with family and friends.
Candice works with Lauren and Christina in the Real Estate department and is also the lead Admin person in the office. If there is something that needs to be done in the office, Candice is always there to lend a helping hand, whether to those in our office or our clients. Candice joined Angle Law in 2019 and has gained an extensive amount of knowledge about the practice of law.
When she’s not in the office, you will find Candice spending time with her family at the campground or baseball diamond!
