MEET THE LAWYERS AT NEUBAUER LAW OFFICE

Josef Neubauer, B.A., LL.B.

I was born in Germany and immigrated to Canada, settling in Oshawa in 1964. I have been married for 42 years and have three adult children. My son Colin has joined my practice as of July 2, 2015.

I have over 40 years of professional experience in the areas of family law, real estate and property law, wills and estates, and estate administration. I am bilingual and offer my services in both English and German.

I deal with my clients issues while keeping the following primary principles in mind:

  • It is my obligation to educate my client in order to enable him or her to make decisions designed to reduce stress and hostility and negotiate a fair and responsible settlement.
  • Although some disputes can only be resolved by litigation in order to secure a fair result for the client, I generally employ a mediation-oriented approach when dealing with my own clients and opposing counsel.
  • I firmly believe that one of the primary duties of a lawyer is to resolve disputes, especially in family law, with civility toward all participants in the process.
