Anita K. Kania, Esq.
Anita graduated from the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law (Cum Laude) in 1992. Prior to attending law school, Anita graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a Bachelor of Arts degree, specializing in philosophy.
Anita worked at a large Bay Street firm in her summer between 2nd and 3rd year law school. Anita also articled at a large Bay Street law firm after graduating from law school.
Anita always knew that she wanted to be a litigator, so after she was called to the Ontario Bar, she accepted a position with a Bay Street firm which allowed her to do that. Anita has appeared regularly in Court since 1994.
In 1996, Anita decided to pursue her Master’s Degree at York University (Osgoode Hall Law School). She graduated with her Masters of Law in 1998, specializing in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). ADR refers to the practice of mediation, negotiation and arbitration. Anita has used these skills to assist her clients.
Shortly after completing her Master’s Degree, Anita moved to New York City, where she wrote (and passed) the New York Bar. Anita worked in New York City from 1998-2002.
Anita returned to Canada in 2002, where she continued working in the family law field. Anita has practiced family law throughout her 30+ year career, and exclusively since 2002. She has appeared in all levels of Court in Ontario, including the Ontario Court of Appeal.
In 2007, Anita and her partner, Paul started Kania Buttigieg, with the mindset to treat clients as they would want to be treated themselves, if they were involved in a family law dispute.
Anita’s work ethic is to be fair and reasonable, so as to resolve matters quickly and amicably. When this is not possible, Anita will advocate firmly for her client’s position.
When Anita is not working, she can often be found traveling near and far. In the last 10 years, Anita has traveled to many parts of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Iceland and many parts of Canada and the United States.
Anita also spends time with her wire-haired fox terrier, Mumford, who has become the firm mascot and regularly sits at her side during client meetings.
