Fiona is committed to protecting the rights and dignity of her clients. She regularly appears before the Ontario and Superior Courts of Justice and takes pride in diligently preparing for each stage of criminal proceedings —from pre-charge and bail to trial and discharge planning. She also appears before the Ontario Review Board, Ontario Parole Board and National Parole Board.

Fiona secures excellent results for her clients. She represents individuals charged with a wide range of criminal offences, from impaired driving/”over 80” and fraud to sexual and domestic assaults, and firearm and drug offences. She is dedicated to achieving the best possible results in each case. As part of her practice, Fiona connects individuals in crisis to community supports in order to assist in their defence and general well-being beyond the criminal justice system.

While her primary focus is criminal law, Fiona also takes on select civil and regulatory cases.

Fiona worked as a summer student and articled at Lockyer Campbell Posner. During that time, she assisted senior counsel on complex trials and appeals at the Ontario Court of Justice, Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Court of Appeal. She then joined a respected Toronto law firm, where she developed a keen interest in assisting individuals facing mental health issues. Fiona rejoined Lockyer Campbell Posner as an associate in 2019.

Fiona graduated from the University of Toronto, Trinity College, with an honours degree in Psychology and Ethics. In 2016, she completed her Juris Doctor at Western University, where she gained valuable experience in client advocacy as a caseworker at Western University’s Legal Aid Clinic, Community Legal Services. While at Western, Fiona clerked at the Ontario Court of Justice in Scarborough and completed an internship with Peacebuilders International (Canada). She was called to the Bar of Ontario in 2017.
