Crys Masterson, BA, JD – Managing Partner
Barrister, Solicitor & Notary Public

Professional Profile

After receiving an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Rhetoric and Professional Writing from the University of Waterloo, Crys began her legal education at the University of Oklahoma, where she served as Editor-in-Chief of the American Indian Law Review. Upon receiving her Juris Doctor from the University of Oklahoma in 2011 and returning home to Ontario, she attended the University of Toronto Faculty of Law and received her Certificate of Qualification from the National Committee of Accreditation in 2012. Crys was admitted to the Ontario Bar in 2013. Crys’s primary areas of practice are real estate law and wills & estates.

Extracurriculars

Crys teaches spin, kickboxing, and weightlifting at GoodLife Fitness but ensures her calorie intake is high enough to prevent looking like a fitness instructor. She enjoys spending time with her spouse and three young children, watching HGTV and any variation of the Bachelor franchise, cheering for the Raptors (even when they’re losing), refusing to wear real pants, and collecting red wine (but struggles to make it last long enough to be a true collection).
