Carl retired from the firm in January 2012. Carl was called to the Bar in 1962 and celebrated his designation as a Life Member of the Law Society of Upper Canada in April 2012. In the first few years of his practice, Carl practised in the heart of Toronto, building the base of his successful practice for many years to follow. In 1972 Carl relocated his practice to Etobicoke, where he remained until his retirement in 2012.
Carl’s practice encompassed many different areas of law, including family, matrimonial law, litigation and small claims court, corporate and commercial law, and wills and powers of attorney. However, Carl’s primary focus was on real estate law. In 1968 Carl sat as a Deputy Judge in small claims court on several occasions. Being able to assist clients with all of these areas brought Carl into contact with many people at some of the most significant times in their lives – from preparing to start a family to starting or selling a business to buying a home and, finally, to ensuring their affairs were in order.
For approximately 10 years Carl taught the Real Estate and Landlord and Tenant sections of the Ontario Bar Admission Course. His active involvement in the legal community led to his Q.C. designation – Queen’s Counsel – in 1978.
Our firm is pleased to continue to service the clients of Carl F. Winer. The respect and warm wishes they continue to express for him speaks volumes about the kind of lawyer he was and the role that his valued advice and kind nature played in their lives.
Carl still visits us regularly and can be contacted through our office.
