The Mousseau, DeLuca, Dinham, Porter & Pollock Law Firm was originally founded in 1961 by Max N. Mousseau, Q.C. Mr. Mousseau was called to the bar in 1949, and was considered to be a leading municipal law expert and general counsel in the County of Essex. In 1966 Armando F. DeLuca partnered with Max Mousseau and the firm became known as Mousseau DeLuca. Max Mousseau and Armando DeLuca’s professional commitment and leadership in community affairs has been continued by the current partners Thomas R. Porter, Richard L. Pollock, Ilias Kiritsis, Jeffrey W. Nanson, and Jennifer Rooke.
The McPherson, Prince & Geddes Law Firm was founded in 1923 by Norman J. McLarty, Q.C. and Gordon L. Fraser, Q.C. In 1934 McLarty moved to Ottawa as the Secretary of State in the Cabinet of Mackenzie King. Leon Z. McPherson joined the firm in 1945 and, upon the death of McLarty, the firm name became Fraser & McPherson. In 1955, Walter H. Prince joined the firm as an associate, followed by Hugh B. Geddes in 1958. On April 1, 1965, a new partnership was formed under the name, McPherson, Prince & Geddes. As one of the longest established law practices in Windsor, the firm has provided capable and diversified legal services to many of the most prominent individuals and companies in the area.

During the articling term the articling student will be involved with various legal and administrative duties such as drafting letters to clients, conducting legal research, preparing legal memoranda, preparing witnesses or clients for trial, preparing for discoveries, attending mediations, motions and settlement conferences. The articling student will learn skills and responsibilities associated with administrative functions required for the carriage and maintenance of files from start to finish.

You may be in court on a daily basis representing the Director of Public Prosecutions in the Ontario Court of Justice, or representing the Town of Amherstburg and the Ministry of Natural Resources in the Provincial Offences Court. In addition, as the articling student has full carriage of small claims court files, you would conduct any trials that arise out of those matters.
