Waterbury Newton: Your Full Service Law Firm in Kentville & Berwick

Waterbury Newton is a well-established, full service law firm with a history of over 60 years in the Annapolis Valley. What started as a small practice consisting of David J.C. Waterbury, a Second World War veteran and his partner, Ralph Shaw, has evolved into a firm with two offices and over 25 lawyers and staff members.

At Waterbury Newton we aim to provide excellent, efficient and personable legal services to our clients. We create innovative solutions while upholding old-fashioned values. We strive to practise law with honesty, integrity, initiative, team work and without discrimination.

Quality Service
Our clients’ needs and expectations are of utmost importance. When providing legal services, the competence and care of our lawyers and support staff come first. We strive to be cost efficient and competitive, but not at the expense of quality of service.

Team Work
We have an experienced and skilled team of lawyers and support staff who work together with mutual respect, courtesy and dedication to our clients. Pooling together our skills and resources as a team enables us to be efficient and achieve the best possible outcomes.

Commitment to the Community
For many years, we have contributed to Bar Society activities, lectures at professional and community seminars, panels, papers and presentations. We freely contribute hundreds of hours annually to public service groups, bringing our talents and abilities to those in need.

Our lawyers and staff contribute regularly to charities and not-for-profit groups through donations and participation in annual fundraisers.
