Shonagh K. Pickens LL.B. B.A.


I have over 13 years of litigation experience as an Assistant Crown Attorney, prosecuting everything from impaired driving to homicide. 

I was born and raised in London, Ontario, and have lived throughout the province. I graduated from Western University in 2004 and was called to the Bar of Ontario in 2005. In 2006, I started my litigation career in Lindsay, Ontario, on a short-term contract. At the end of that contract, I worked for 10 years in Peterborough and it began to feel like home.

I have sat on a number of Boards over the years, including the Kawartha Food Source in Lindsay and Balance for Blind Adults in Toronto. Balance assists blind and visually impaired adults with daily living, mobility and advocacy. I’m looking forward to finding volunteer opportunities in Peterborough.  

I'm thrilled to be opening my own law practice and very proud of the dynamic and experienced team that I've assembled to serve you and the community of Peterborough.
