Brad Evans is the most senior lawyer at Grandmaitre Virgo Evans, having been called to the Bar in 1980. He and Gerry Dust (now retired) founded the Firm in the 1990s, as Dust Evans. Brad’s practice focuses primarily on wills and estates. He is certified by the Law Society of Ontario as a specialist in Estates and Trusts Law. This Specialist Certificate is granted to those lawyers in Ontario who have demonstrated to their peers a superior level of knowledge, expertise, and experience in the drafting of wills and powers of attorney, estate planning, and the administration of estates. He is one of only two lawyers in the Ottawa area who holds this distinction. As further recognition of his experience and expertise in wills and estates, Brad was awarded the 2018 International Advisory Experts award for Estate Planning in Canada. Over the years, Brad has contributed to the legal profession by presenting papers at continuing legal education events. Additionally, he has supported his community as past-chair of the Ottawa Mission and Heart of Orléans BIA and as a board member of Arts Ottawa East.
Brad still practices law with enthusiasm and enjoyment, which benefits those who are looking for a lawyer who will show a genuine interest in their legal matters and will get things done for them in a prompt, professional, and caring manner.
Outside of the office, Brad enjoys travelling, dining with friends, family and colleagues, music, tennis, and cross-country skiing.
