Tradition

Our commitment and core values have endured since our founding in 1953.

Established more than 65 years ago, Sullivan Mahoney LLP is one of the oldest law firms in Niagara.

A proud history.

When Philip H. Sullivan and C. Hugh Mahoney sealed their partnership with a handshake in 1953, they set the cornerstone for a law firm that is now synonymous with the practice of law across Niagara and throughout Southern Ontario. At Sullivan Mahoney LLP, we are proud of our roots — where we’ve been, as well as where we’re heading.

From humble beginnings in a three-man office, the path to the present has seen Sullivan Mahoney LLP emerge as Niagara’s pre-eminent law firm, providing a full range of legal services via a team of more than 30 lawyers. Sixty-five years later, we are excited about the prospect of continued growth shaped by the same values established by our founding partners.

An enduring vision.

Tradition is sometimes described as a way of thinking or a way of doing things over time. At Sullivan Mahoney LLP it is about the way we practice law, and it is why we are a truly client committed firm.

The original partners set out to establish a law firm based upon hard work, integrity and an uncompromising commitment to clients. While the names on the doors of the Sullivan Mahoney Law Offices have changed with time, our adherence to this vision and these core values endures.

Our values and our commitment.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality legal service in a cost-effective manner with an uncompromising commitment to our clients.
