Marc has been living in, and providing legal services to, Northumberland County since 2001. Although, he grew up in Ottawa and originally was heading towards the bright lights of Toronto, Marc's initial thought of a stop over in Northumberland quickly turned in a deep affection for the area and he's become "so local" that one client insisted they went to the same high school locally. Marc’s practice is focused on Criminal Law, Real Estate, Wills and Estates, and Civil Litigation. Marc graduated from Queen's University Law School in 1999 and received his undergraduate degree in Ottawa at Carleton University. He was the standing agent for the PPSC (aka the Federal Crown for drug prosecutions) for about 14 years as well as defence counsel for non-CDSA matters also throughout that time. That experience has proven invaluable and is an advantage passed along to his clients.
Originally from Vermont, Phillip moved to Cobourg with his partner and maintained a solo practice prior to joining Bebee & Associates. Phillip maintains a general practice including Family Law, Criminal Law, Civil Litigation, Wills and Estates, and Real Estate. Phillip holds law degrees from the University of Windsor and the University of Detroit Mercy, and a BAH from Queens University in Psychology and History.
James was born and raised in Belleville, Ontario. He was an Inaugural class graduate in 2016 of the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Eager to practice, James was called to bar in the fall of 2016 and did his placement with a poverty law clinic in Thunder Bay. James primarily practiced criminal law in Thunder Bay but also gained experience with the residential tenancies act, provincial offences, civil law, wills and estates and family law. Through his work with the Indigenous Peoples Court in Thunder Bay and fly-in circuit courts around the area, James earned significant experience and insight with his indigenous clients.
James moved back to Southern Ontario in 2018 and joined Bebee and Associates in 2019, where he has continued practicing criminal law. His mandate is to make the Canadian legal system accessible for every client and ensure they understand the process every step of the way and feel confident through their representation.
