Principal Lawyer

I’m Lisa Feldstein.

I am a health lawyer and the principal lawyer of Lisa Feldstein Law Office Professional Corporation. I help clients create and protect their families. I provide health law advocacy and advice to help you resolve what I know is a stressful, challenging and often scary situation.

When I am not busy lawyering, I am teaching health law as an Adjunct Professor at York University, mentoring law students and raising two young kids. For more about my credentials, please see My Biography below.

Biography & Background

My career has always been focused on health law. It is the perfect marriage of my interest in law and bioethics.

I studied psychology at the University of Guelph. When I graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2010 I worked at a Toronto health law firm providing advice to hospitals and other health care institutions. Along the way I also worked at two teaching hospitals in the areas of research ethics and mental health law.

My legal career has taken me to various courts and tribunals. I have advocated for clients before the Consent and Capacity Board, the Health Services Appeal and Review Board, the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board, and the Superior Court of Justice. I believe strongly in the power of mediation and have served as a mediator at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Small Claims Division.

In addition to practicing law, I love to teach. I taught negotiation at Osgoode Hall Law School for six years.  I am an Adjunct Professor at York University, where I teach Health Care Law.

When time permits, I also volunteer. In the past few years I served as a director of a Toronto charity that assists people with vision impairments; and I sat on the Ontario Bar Association health law executive.

I regularly speak to the media about the latest health law developments. You can click on Media and Speaking & Writing to learn more about my media appearances, presentations and publications.

In 2015 I won a Precedent Setter Award, which recognizes lawyers who have shown excellence and leadership in their early years of practice. I was also humbled to win a 2014 Clawbie (Canadian Law Blog Awards)
for best practitioner blog. I strive to be worthy of these awards every day.

How I Work

If you are contacting my firm, you have enough to worry about already. My goal is to at least take away the worrying with respect to the law. I will explain it to you in plain English and translate legalese where it is used.

I also rely on my mediation and negotiation training to avoid damaging relationships, or provoking retaliation, while striving to achieve your goals. I understand the expense and time commitment of being an advocate or family caregiver, or trying to have a baby with the assistance of a fertility clinic. I therefore offer flexible office hours and methods of communication. If you would like to correspond by Skype or text message, just ask!
