Areesha joined Mills & Mills LLP in 2023 as an Associate in the Family Law group. Areesha has exclusively practiced in family law since 2013 and has appeared before most levels of court including the Ontario Court of Justice, Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Divisional Court and the Ontario Court of Appeal.

Areesha’s diverse family law experience includes working with high net-worth clients, matters involving public figures, as well as complex parenting issues. When urgency is paramount, Areesha navigates legal regulations and court procedures to swiftly address critical matters, such as asset depletion or restricted parenting time. In otherwise delicate matters, she helps resolve matters amicably. Areesha assists with cohabitation, marriage and separation agreements as well.

Areesha graduated from the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law in 2012, where she was the recipient of the Richard Weiler Mediation Prize as well as the Law Foundation of Ontario’s grant for pursuing social justice. She obtained her Honours in Criminology, Justice and Policy Studies from Ontario Tech University in 2009, where she met the Dean’s List each year.
