Beth Purdon-McLellan

Associate


Beth practices exclusively family law and child protection. Prior to joining Niman Mamo LLP, Beth practiced at a child protection and family law firm where she gained significant experience working with complex child protection cases, including: litigation flowing from flawed Motherisk hair strand testing, emerging indigenous child welfare issues, and high conflict custody/access cases. Beth has worked with families dealing with all kinds of tough situations; she always meets clients with empathy while also advocating on their behalf. 

Beth articled at the Office of the Children's Lawyer. She now regularly represents children in family law and child protection matters. In addition to giving her a great excuse to hang out with kids, Beth's experience as a children's lawyer has assisted her in developing a truly child-focused approach to family law. 

At law school, Beth worked and volunteered at a community legal aid clinic where she represented clients in social benefit appeals, landlord and tenant matters, criminal injury compensation claims, and family law matters at the Ontario Court of Justice. 

These days, most of Beth's free time is spent watering her houseplants, as she has collected more of them than she cares to admit. She is also a board member of the Scarborough Women's Centre and values community advocacy. Beth was called to the Bar in 2017.
