Irene C. Petrakis
Irene graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan in 2013. Prior to attending law school, Irene graduated from the University of Toronto, St. Michael’s College, with an Honours’ Bachelor of Arts degree, having majored in European History and minored in Political Science and Philosophy.
During her final semester of law school, Irene completed an externship at a mid-sized Toronto firm in its Creditors’ Rights department, working with both secured and unsecured creditors. Upon completion of the examination process of the National Committee on Accreditation, Irene worked as a law student, as well as an articling student, for a sole practitioner in Toronto’s east end- practicing in the areas of family law, estates and real estate law. It is during this time when Irene developed a genuine interest in family law.
Upon her call to the Ontario Bar in 2017, Irene started her own practice and simultaneously contracted with a boutique firm in Mississauga practicing family law primarily, as well as in the area of wills and estates. After one year, Irene made the decision to close her practice and focus her attention on her work at this boutique firm, at which she worked for 2 years gaining ample experience in family law.
Irene unquestionably enjoys working in family law because she believes it is an area of practice where she is able to make a positive difference in her clients’ lives. She focuses on resolving matters in a quick and amicable manner in an effort to achieve a fair and reasonable result.
Irene enjoys spending her spare time with her family and friends, usually binge-watching the latest “it” Netflix series, or watching/attending a sporting event, pretending to follow along.
