J. Steven McCutcheon, B.A., LL.B.

Steven McCutcheon is a graduate of Queen’s University (1979) and obtained his Bachelor of Laws from the University of Windsor (1985). He was called to the Ontario Bar in 1987.

Steven has travelled North America first with Holiday on Ice and then two years with the Ice Capades. He has practiced law in Toronto, Milton, Oakville and Burlington over the years as well as spending time with the Peel Regional Police Service and running his own sports car business. He was a founding Member of the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal, adjudicating thousands of landlord-and-tenant cases over six years.

Steven returned to private practice in 2004. Since 2006 his practice has been restricted to family law. While Steven is a passionate advocate and excels in the courtroom, it is more important than ever to resolve family disputes in a sensible, efficient and cost-effective manner.

Negotiating a resolution of children’s issues, child or spousal support and equalization of family property are all important issues that can often be resolved with a comprehensive separation agreement.

With over 30 years of legal experience, from both sides of the bench, Steven is a strong advocate who has earned the respect of his clients, colleagues and the local judiciary.

Hear It from Our Clients

My experiences with Steven McCutcheon were stupendous through and through. He know his craft and walk the extra mile for you. I consulted with Steven on two different occasions and each one of them was handled with utmost care and professionalism. I also appreciated working with people that care for you on a personal level instead of just handling you as a “case“. Highly recommend.”


Thank you for your patience and willingness Steve to see it through to the end. You managed to get me a settlement that for a long time I didn’t think would be possible-much appreciated.


Steven McCutcheon had been our attorney for the last few years for a child custody case as well as advisement on a number of related issues. Throughout all of that time, Steve was always a consummate professional, always kept in regular contact, and did fantastic work for us in and out of the courtroom. I highly recommend McCutcheon family Law to anyone who is looking for a lawyer or legal advice; you will get your money’s worth and more. Thank you for everything Steve.
