About Our Firm

About Our Firm

With 20 years of experience and results, we aim to solve your legal problems. We focus on your results.

CHIN & ORR began with founders Peter Chin and the late Susan Orr serving the Midland and Simcoe County area in Family, Civil Law, Wills & Estates and Real Estate. A few short years later Carolyn Tonin joined the firm and helped grow the Estate and Real Estate division.

After servicing the community for so long, Susan was diagnosed with cancer and passed away in 2003. As a way to honour her memory after working so hard, the firm continues to embody the spirit and passion Susan had for the law by bearing her name as a testament to her legacy.
