Annie Yektaeian


Annie certainly enjoys her career as a lawyer, but if you should also happen to mention literature or ‘true crime’ dramas, you will definitely have her undivided attention. There would be no shortage of things to talk about.

That said, however, you might just want to watch what you say around her. Annie is pretty finicky when it comes to grammar, as well as the correct usage of spoken terms. Sound harsh? Think again. After all, when it comes to protecting your legal rights, who else but your lawyer would you want to make sure that all the “t’s” are crossed and every “i” dotted?

Annie’s voracious appetite (some may say obsession…not us of course!) for books started when she was young, and continues unabated to this day. It no doubt fueled her interest in studying English Literature at the University of Toronto, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree. She obviously enjoyed the coursework there so much that she simply had to go back. This time to obtain her Master of Arts degree in…you guessed it. English Literature.

In time, Annie was ready for other scholastic pursuits besides literature, but one that would surely require just as much reading. Annie set her sights on the Faculty of Law at the University of Windsor, where she received her Juris Doctor degree in 2010, was called to the Ontario bar in January of 2012, and is now trained and certified to practice collaborative family law.

Using her easy-going approach, Annie is a resolutions-oriented lawyer with a terrific knack for problem solving. Her clients value her wisdom and appreciate how she gently guides them towards practical outcomes.
