Introducing KDB Law

the culmination of a dream

Our Story

KDB Law brings together two passions: the law and people. 

Katie decided she wanted to become a lawyer at the age of 7, while growing up on a farm near Mitchell, Ontario. When she went to law school in Toronto, her small town roots followed her there, and she was equally excited to learn about contracts and our constitution as she was to explore more of the world and meet new people.

When she returned to Perth County and started her family, she found that practicing law in rural Ontario offered a unique opportunity. She was able to build an interesting and challenging legal practice, while at the same time continuing to connect with her community and clients in a very personal and connected way. These experiences are the bedrock for the vision of KDB Law.  

At KDB Law we provide a modern approach to the delivery of legal services, so that our clients feel compassionately supported in their needs.

We lead with empathy, recognizing that our clients often seek legal services during challenging periods in their lives—marked by high stress, overwhelming circumstances, and emotional intensity. Our commitment is to provide a supportive environment with a team of lawyers and legal staff who approach each interaction with compassion and understanding, ready to guide and support you.


We're people, just like you. We know that the law can seem intricate and convoluted. However, it doesn't have to be. We simplify the process, presenting your options in a clear, understandable language familiar to you. We also understand the demands of modern life – our clients juggle numerous responsibilities daily, just like us. In response, we're innovating our procedures to facilitate online appointment scheduling, virtual collaborative discussions and document signing. Our goal is to lighten the load for our clients, ensuring a secure, practical delivery of legal services.


Our work is our passion, and we spread this passion across many endeavours. We are engaged and focussed on our client’s outcomes. This commitment is steadfast, and we balance this with being offline for our kid’s soccer game & summer long weekend trips to the cottage while at the same time ensuring the job gets done effectively and on time. Achieving balance enhances our collective effectiveness.


KBD embraces innovation, rejecting the status quo of doing things simply because they've always been done that way. We recognize that each situation is distinct, requiring a tailored approach rather than a one-size-fits-all solution. With our expertise, creativity and dynamism, we craft outcome-based solutions, always prioritizing our clients' peace of mind.

connected by a shared purpose
