Robert Martin

About

Bob’s interest in law stems back to a beach in Bermuda where the decision was made to study law, after an Undergraduate Degree at the University of Western Ontario where he successfully blended scholastics with music as a member of a rock and roll, rhythm and blues band.

After a year of work in the business world (in the U.K.) and an excursion through Eastern and Western Europe in 1966, Bob commenced his legal studies at Queen’s University where he became the President of Queen’s Law School and recipient of the prestigious Alma Mater Society Award, the Queen’s Law Student Gavel Award and a number of book prizes.

After graduating, Bob articled in Toronto and was persuaded to commence a “small town” practice with a classmate and good friend – and so came to Burlington with none other than H. Bruce T. Hillyer in 1972. Their business association and their close friendship continues to this day. Bob has concentrated his practice in Estates, Real Estate, Corporate & Commercial Law and Family Law. He has represented children as a Children’s Lawyer Appointee for twenty plus years.

His community involvement is extensive with particular interest in health, having spent six years on the Halton District Health Council and fifteen years on the Board of Joseph Brant Hospital (including two years as Chairman). He has served on various Legal Aid Committees and lectured at schools and universities.

He has been an active Board Member and President of the Halton County Law Association. Bob expands his expertise by attending various conferences including those held by the Canadian Bar Association, and the American Family and Conciliation Courts. He is Chairman of the Burlington Downtown Business Association.

His integrity and sense of fairness are recognized wherever he has practiced and he never ceases to strive for the best interests of each and every client. He has taken mediation and advanced mediation programs and is available to do mediation to facilitate an alternative method of dispute resolution. He is also a participant in group initiatives to establish a collaborative law group in the Hamilton Halton Peel area.

He has a passion for baseball and hockey which he plays throughout the year with the Burlington Oldtimers and has decided that basketball is okay too.
