Jeff is the principal lawyer at Rouse Law Office. His practice primarily consists of family law and general litigation. Jeff opened his office September 2007 after leaving a general law practice working as an associate.
Jeff’s practice has a special focus on family law. He started his training as a lawyer mostly working on family law files. Jeff’s articling experience was with a Toronto law firm. The challenges of family law quickly became evident at this time. However, Jeff also experienced the triumphs of working with clients through difficult times. Jeff’s belief in helping clients in times of need was starting to take shape. This time of need was usually during a relationship breakdown. It is this belief that would be become the backdrop for opening Rouse Law Office. It is Jeff’s sense of dedication to the client that puts Rouse Law Office at the forefront with its continued success.
Jeff is also on Legal Aid’s Family Law Duty Counsel Panels in Simcoe and Grey Counties. He has been a Panel Lawyer since the Fall of 2007.

This technology also allows Jeff to be accessible to his clients unmatched by other firms.
Jeff’s client base is primarily in the Georgian Triangle. However, this client base also extends to the reaches of Simcoe County and beyond. Again, Jeff’s embrace of technology allows for such opportunities. Jeff commonly attends courts in Collingwood, Barrie, Midland, Orillia, Owen Sound. He also attends courts in Orangeville, Newmarket, Cobourg, Toronto, Simcoe and even as far as Thunder Bay.
