About this Event

"Planning for Probate: Producing a Tax Efficient Estate"

BARBARA HULME, BARBARA J. HULME PROFESSIONAL CORPORATION - As a graduate of University of Western Ontario School of Law, Barbara was called to the bar of the Law Society of Upper Canada (now the Law Society of Ontario) in 1994. She was working with E. Susan Elliott, at Good Elliott Hawkins, when she was made a judge of the Federal Court of Canada. (Barbara was, in fact, the only lawyer working with Susan Elliott when she was called up to the big leagues, despite claims by others).

Barbara has been a sole practice since 2016, with her office located at 275 Ontario Street. The focus of her practice is wills and estates where she practices from a seniors’ perspective.

Barbara sits on the board of directors of the Seniors Association Kingston region and the board of the Oasis program. She previously sat on the board of the council on aging. Barbara writes a monthly column for the vista magazine on legal issues and runs a pro bono legal clinic twice a month at the Seniors Centre.

Barbara grew up in the military, with her dad in the Airforce. Although Kingston is not Barbara’s hometown, it is her home. She lives here with her wife, Jess, who is also one of her law clerks.
