About Me

Peter Hearty

Peter Hearty

I spent over twenty years in policing, including 16 years investigating complex money laundering cases. I learned that criminals will hide money through the use of corporations or hide money and assets in foreign locations. I was qualified to provide expert opinion evidence on money laundering issues in both provincial court and superior court. I spent this time building cases against high-level organized crime and have learned that whether money is being hidden from police, tax officials or ex-spouses, the methods are all the same.

I gained significant litigation experience in employment conduct matters with the federal government. After going through my own unnecessarily high-conflict divorce, I am taking the skills I learned over the past two decades and applying it to complex family law financial situations. Whether you believe your ex-spouse is hiding money and assets to avoid support payments, or if your ex-spouse has wrongly accused you of hiding money, Peter Hearty has the necessary skills to negotiate, litigate and resolve your disputes.

I am a licenced lawyer in Ontario and provide legal services in Kanata and will serve clients in the Ottawa area and through Eastern Ontario or elsewhere in Ontario. I provide all of my services to my clients virtually. If you have a complex family law financial issue or an employment law issue, contact Hearty Law today at ottawa@heartylaw.ca.
