Fhara Pottinger


After graduating from the University of New Brunswick Law School in 2002, Fhara spent two years in Bosnia and Herzegovina, participating in the extensive reformation of the country’s systems of governance and law. While there she worked with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Fhara’s practice focuses primarily in the areas of wills and estates (including estate litigation), family law, corporate and commercial law and real estate law. She has also recently completed training in collaborative family law. She has taken over the helm of Weilers’ Saturday morning Wills Clinic, a project spearheaded by Deborah Humphreys. Fhara’s dog, Lulu, frequently joins her on Saturday mornings and has been unofficially dubbed the Wills Clinic mascot.
