Tristan graduated from the University of Windsor with a Bachelor of Criminology (Hons) and Juris Doctor (law) where he was the recipient of several awards throughout his academic career. He was called to the bar in June of 2020 after completing his articling term with a prominent civil litigation firm. He became an associate with Cheryl Hodgkin and the Family Law Firm immediately thereafter.
Tristan’s keen interest in family law developed prior to law school in supervised access, where he facilitated structured visits for families engaged in legal disputes. During law school, most notably, he obtained summa cum laude honours, participated in Community Legal Aid, and led the Windsor Law hockey team to victory at the 2019 Queen’s Cup.
Tristan practices in all areas of family law, including issues surrounding custody and access, spousal and child support, and the division of family property. Tristan is committed to working with his clients in order to obtain the best possible resolution either through negotiated settlements or family court litigation.
When he is not practicing law, Tristan enjoys writing about local community issues and has had his work featured by the Windsor Star. He is also a musician and loves expressing his artistic talents through guitar and drums. Tristan’s greatest passion is spending time with his two young daughters.
