Gerry B. Burdett

Born and raised in Stratford, Gerry has been practicing law here for more than 40 years. In that time, Gerry has been involved in almost every avenue of the legal community: he has been a prosecutor and defence attorney in the criminal courts and for provincial offences, he has spoken about the law to groups of prison inmates, high school students, and members of government and the civil service. He has been an active member of the community in Stratford, as a founding member of Perth Country Crimestoppers and volunteering with a number of agencies including the Ministry of Corrections, Perth County, United Way, Heart & Stroke, and various other groups. He is also a past-President of the Perth County Law Association. Gerry now has a general practice with a focus on real estate, wills, powers of attorney and estate administration.
