Sebastian received his J.D. from Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto. Before law school, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Music with Honours from the University of Ottawa, studying Voice and Composition. Sebastian earned a certificate from the Toronto Construction Association, where he trained to adjudicate construction disputes, and was a legal intern at the Society of Composers, Authors, and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN), where he assisted in litigation to defend artists’ rights to intellectual property.
Sebastian has been practicing primarily in family law since 2021, both in the court room and outside of court. He has appeared before the Ontario Court of Justice and the Superior Court of Justice for both family and civil matters. His experience in family litigation has involved numerous high-conflict, complex separations, where issues such as parenting, support, and property are at the forefront. His primary focus is always to ensure he is there for his clients and their families at every step of the way during what is arguably the most difficult moments of their lives.
Outside of the office, Sebastian’s passion for harmony and melody draws him to write new pieces of music and perform on a regular basis, and he continues to teach music to children and adults as well. Sebastian has directed numerous choirs and instrumental ensembles, frequently arranging music for these groups, and was a recipient of the top prize as music conductor for the festival Music Alive in York Region. Sebastian is also a frequent live performer and has toured across all North America.
