Thomas Singleton LL.B., B.C.L., LL.M,
Thomas J. Singleton is a highly experienced family law practitioner who has argued some of the most contentious cases before the courts in Nova Scotia. Mr. Singleton regularly appears before the various family courts in Nova Scotia on a wide variety of family law issues, including child custody and access, child and spousal support, division of assets and debt issues and contested divorce proceedings. Some of the cases which Mr. Singleton has argued, dealing with matters such as attribution of income, are reported and are frequently relied on by the courts in rendering decisions regarding these issues. Mr. Singleton is a very practical lawyer who believes that an honest effort should be made to resolve family law issues through negotiation, but he is nevertheless always prepared to go the distance and argue the case in court should attempts at settlement not succeed.
Mr. Singleton is fluently bilingual and has conducted trials in both English and French.
