On March 31, 2000 Fernandes Law Offices opened in Suite 112 at 111 Riverside Drive East, Windsor, Ontario. In the beginning Maria did everything herself, from meeting with clients to producing and filing documents with the Courthouse, and finally appearing in Court and doing Trials. From the beginning Fernandes Law Offices has always kept the best interests of its clients as their guiding principle.
In 2001 a Family Law assistant was hired to help service the increasing number of family law clients. Fernandes Law Offices is a full service family law firm. We handle all aspects of family law, from Prenuptial Agreements to Divorces, and everything in between. That same year an Immigration assistant was added to the firm to handle the influx of clients coming from all over the world.
In November of 2004 the office was expanded into Suite 111 to double its size to better service the ever increasing number of clients.
