John Wolfe


I graduated from the University of Toronto in 1976. Thereafter I articled at a branch of the Ministry of the Attorney General in Toronto and was called to the Bar in April of 1978.  A practice for sale in the picturesque Town of Grimsby caught my eye.  The practice was purchased, shingle hung out and here I’ve been since 1978.  Until a few years ago I served for over twenty years on the board of directors of our local Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.  When not at the office or home you might find me at the Twenty Valley Golf Club, the Grimsby Curling Club or one of our local gym

After obtaining my Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Psychology from Brock University, I attended the University of Leicester in England where I received my Bachelor of Laws. I have been practicing estates law, business and real estate law in Niagara-on-the-Lake since my call to the Bar of Ontario in 2014. Having been born and raised in Lincoln, I am excited to be practicing in Grimsby and am looking forward to establishing myself in my own community.
