Lawyer, Ronald R. Chisholm, has built a law practice that spans more than 25 years in Truro, Nova Scotia by building a relationship with each of his clients personally.

Clients turn to Ron time and again for help with everything from purchasing a first home and preparing a will, to incorporating a new business or legal counsel after a car accident. They do it, because Ron is the lawyer who invests time in understanding your circumstances so you get the right advice and the precise legal work you need each time.

In today’s world of corporate behemoths and faceless online crowds, having a single lawyer you can count on to see you through all of life’s many milestones may seem a bit old fashioned… But isn’t it refreshing?

Family Matters

A separation or divorce isn’t a decision you have taken lightly. You have a lot to think about and still more difficult decisions that need to be made. The right lawyer is also a trusted advisor and will help you navigate this rocky road.

Residential & Commercial Real Estate

Whether it is your first home or a commercial property, buying and selling real estate is a big milestone in life. Ronald R. Chisholm has extensive experience in every type of real estate transaction from residential properties to complex property development projects.

Business Law

Entering the world of small business is one of life’s monumental events. You need a lawyer who has been in your shoes to help you get started on the right foot and stay with you as your business grows.

Major Injuries

Life changing accidents and major injuries don’t always happen in your own neighbourhood. Regardless of where it occurs, when a significant injury happens to you or someone you love,  you need a lawyer you can call on.

Vehicle Accidents & Insurance Claims

As if being in a motor vehicle accident isn’t traumatic enough, dealing with the legal aftermath and insurance claims can be even worse. A good lawyer will take care of these details so you can focus on taking care of you.

How we can help you:

Words from our clients

If you want to deal with a firm that is professional, thorough, and where everybody knows your name, Ron Chisholm Law should be your choice.
     When we decided to purchase a new home, we recalled all the great things we had heard others share about their experience with Ron Chisholm Law so they were our first contact - even before we viewed the house. My friends were right! The process of buying a home is one of life’s most stressful experiences; and Ron, Joanne and John at Ron Chisholm Law did everything possible to make the closing as smooth as possible - especially given we wanted to close in two and a half weeks. Ron also gave us great counsel regarding having our property taxes re-assesed and we had our keys in hand by noon on the closing day. If you want to deal with a firm that is professional, thorough, and where everybody knows your name, Ron Chisholm Law should be your choice.
