With over seventeen years of experience, Jean-Pierre Ung is a lawyer dedicated to providing exceptional services.
Jean-Pierre’s entire background has been centered around the law. In 1996, Jean-Pierre completed his Honours Bachelor of Arts, with Distinction, at the University of Toronto. His emphasis was on Criminology and Law, Ethics, and Society. In 1999, he went on to complete his Law Degree at the prestigious Osgoode Hall Law School. While doing so, he volunteered as a Probation Officer with the Ontario Probation and Parole Services. Jean-Pierre also worked at Parkdale Legal Community Services where he represented individuals with immigration and refugee issues.
In 2001, Jean-Pierre was successfully called to the Ontario Bar Association. He became a Partner of the former law firm Still McCalmont Daly Ung in 2003. He has appeared in many courts at various levels. However, his approach is settlement-oriented to save his clients unnecessary legal fees, animosity, risks, and delay.
In 2010, Jean-Pierre founded the Law Office of Jean-Pierre Ung. This was to provide more personalized legal services. By dealing with clients one-on-one instead of delegating to staff, Jean-Pierre does what other lawyers may not: deliver results and not just promises.

(2) custody and access;
(3) spousal and child support;
(4) equalization and division of family property;
