Lisa Feldstein, Health Lawyer at Lisa Feldstein Law Office PC and Adjunct Professor
I studied psychology at the University of Guelph. When I graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2010 I worked at a Toronto health law firm providing advice to hospitals and other health care institutions. Along the way I also worked at two teaching hospitals in the areas of research ethics and mental health. My legal career has taken me to various courts and tribunals. I have advocated for clients before the Consent and Capacity Board, the Health Services Appeal and Review Board, the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board, the Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Court of Justice. Since 2013 I have focused my career on advocating for family caregivers, who so often are left in the dark and excluded from their loved one's care.
Lisa Feldstein Law Office PC is a health law firm in Ontario, Canada that help family caregivers protect their families. We serve clients 1:1 and, frankly, it's not enough. It's difficult to have the level of impact we want. It's hard to help people who cannot afford a lawyer (being a caregiver can be expensive!). And sometimes people need legal information in 15 minute time-slots, or at three in the morning. We wanted to do better. Cue Kinkeeper™: an online platform we've created where family caregivers can come and learn practical information about health law on their own schedule, for a fraction of the price of meeting a lawyer one-on-one. We also have live webinars and courses for those who want guidance from a lawyer and to connect with others in the same situation.
