Jessica E. Vriend - Associate Lawyer


Jessica Vriend was called to the bar in Ontario in 2017. Her practice is focused on family law and civil litigation.

Jessica represents clients in both contentious and non-contentious matters involving custody and access, support issues, and property division/equalization. She has appeared before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in relation to family court applications and motions to change, and she has represented clients in interprovincial matters, such as interjurisdictional support order applications. Jessica also has experience negotiating and drafting cohabitation agreements, marriage contracts, and separation agreements.

Jessica also has a civil litigation practice. She is particularly interested in employment and estate litigation cases. Prior to joining Kinch Eddie Litigation, Jessica gained experience at a local law firm preparing wills and powers of attorney for property and personal care. Combined with her background in family law, this gives her a unique perspective on estate matters.
