About Racine Law

Melanie Racine is pleased to have opened Racine Law Professional Corporation in her home town of Port Hope, Ontario.

It is Racine Law's mission to help the residents of Northumberland County with real estate law,  powers of attorney and business and corporate law, wills, estate planning & administration, and educate them in the importance of preparation.

In March of 2016, Melanie incorporated Racine Law and subsequently moved to the Walton Street office in November. From there, the practice expanded to include Matthew and Colin. Elsa joined the summer of 2017. As of 2018, there are 3 lawyers, 1 paralegal, 3 clerks and a bookkeeper/administrator on staff. Racine Law will be growing again in 2019.

With continued growth on the horizon, Racine Law would like to continue to exceed the needs and expectations of our clients.
