When clients need an advocate who thinks outside the box and comes up with creative solutions for complicated problems, they turn to Sheldon. Sheldon is not a typical litigator. He joined Blaney McMurtry after an extensive and successful career in the film and television industry as a freelance screenwriter, director and assistant director. Sheldon co-produced and co-directed his final feature film as an independent project at the same time he was attending law school.

Sheldon handles claims for defamation, professional negligence, breach of contract, product liability, personal injury and copyright infringement. He also handles claims related to road liability, occupier’s liability and correctional facilities at the provincial level; claims made against regional councillors for defamation; and claims arising from personal injuries sustained on public sidewalks, in public parks and in subsidized housing.

The skills Sheldon developed on high stress movie sets, with their impossible deadlines and difficult personalities, serve him well in the practice of law. Sheldon knows how to read people and assemble evidence so it tells the right story. His patience and insight make him particularly adept at dealing with vexatious litigants and complicated fact situations.

Sheldon regularly appears before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. He has been successful at trial, on appeal to the Divisional Court, and on appeal to the Ontario Court of Appeal. He has also successfully opposed applications for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada.
