Because you can count on a neighbour
Choosing an attorney for yourself or your family is a serious decision. You want someone who understands you and your community.
I’m Marc Bebee, and I’ve been a lawyer in Northumberland County — from Port Hope to Cobourg to Brighton and all places in between — since 2001.
My associate, Phillip Crannell, brings a variety of experience and is eager to serve Northumberland County.
Our team live and work where you do. Contact us to talk about what you need.
Buying or selling property is one of the largest financial transactions in your life. You want it done right and when things go wrong, you want to be sure your rights (and your financial interests) are protected.
First, we make sure you understand the process ahead and the costs and disbursements likely to be incurred so there are no surprises.
Second, we have extended hours and professional staff and lawyers who can answer your questions or concerns should they arise.
Third, when it comes time to sign documentation we’ll meet with you at a time that works with your schedule – including evenings and weekends.
Finally, our services to you don’t end when the deal closes. We send you an informative closing letter indicating the work we have done for your records and if issues do arise, you can turn to us to assist in making something gone wrong, right.
Its not the kind of topic that fills people with thoughts of joy and happiness: Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Estates.
But, it’s something that all of us have to deal with.
Having an up to date Will and Power of Attorney not only makes sure your wishes are known and respected when you can’t speak them for yourself, it gives comfort and certainty for your loved ones in what will be an already difficult time for them.
Any time your life circumstances change, be it a union or a dissolution, or the arrival of children or the fallout of a estrangement, you should consider how that event might alter your final wishes and who holds your Power of Attorney.
If you are the executor or executrix of an estate, and you need assistance, our Firm can help you navigate successfully the myriad of things that need to be taken care of to fulfill your duties to the estate.
Ideally, when relationships end, there should be amicable, reasonable, and civil discussions to dealing with the Family Law issues that arise. Our Firm can help in assisting you with that – and without exorbitant legal fees.
Unfortunately, the ideal is far too often not the reality for many when their relationships end, even if you want the ideal your former partner may not. The Family law matters that can arise can unfortunately be some of the most contentious, difficult, and sensitive issues to deal with. This is especially true when children are involved.
Our Firm is here to be at your side every step of the way. So, while we always advocate trying to work out differences to minimize legal expenses and stress, we won’t shy away from Court if that’s what is in your best interests and at your instructions. We work for you and are here to provide you with the best legal advice for your situation – and that includes which strategies would result in the minimum legal expenses.
In order to better serve our community, our firm accepts Legal Aid certificates.
We practice in all areas of family law, including:
- Marriage Contracts
- Cohabitation Agreements
- Separation Agreements

- Independant Legal Advice

People often think that criminal law is just like what they see on TV. The Police are there to help, they are there to investigate crime – they are to get to the “truth”. Unfortunately, the reality is that Police can get it wrong and very often their investigation goes no further than listening to the complainant’s allegations.
In the real world, the truth is effectively an afterthought of a Police system designed more with goals of efficiency and public policy objectives.
So whether the Police have or are about to arrest you or they “only want to ask you some questions” call us first. Never speak to the Police unless you’ve spoken to a lawyer first – a rule so golden, rights to counsel is a cornerstone of our Justice system.
The Bebee and Associates team have successfully dealt with criminal cases in Northumberland County for over 16 years from sexual assaults, impaired driving and Over 80s, to complicated fraud allegations and Controlled Drugs and Substances Act matters.
Our experience and skill ensures you receive not just the best representation and advice but that we also help to make the entire experience of dealing with the Criminal Justice system understandable for you. We take legal problems and find you solutions – to minimize the stress in what is already a difficult situation.
Its the difference between just getting legal services and professional legal services.
Should you find yourself in a dispute, whether at work, with a neighbor, or with the city, an experienced trial lawyer can assist you in resolving your issue and providing you with peace of mind. Civil disputes are known to be time consuming and expensive; however, with a focused and dedicated approach our firm can assist you in achieving cost effective and practical legal solutions.
As part of our commitment to serving our community, we provide a variety of services ranging from consultations to full representation and offer a variety of flat fee legal services.
Our practice areas include:
- Small Claims
- Landlord and Tenant Law
- Contract Enforcement and Review
- Assistance for Self-Represented Litigants
- Estate Litigation
- Real Estate
- Injunctions and other Superior Court Matters
When first contacting us – either by phone, email or the form on this page – please provide only your name and contact information, name of the opposing side, and only the general nature of the issue/dispute. Please do not include any details, as we may not be able to act for you in the case of a conflict.
