Seabourne Geale-Barker

Although born and raised in Northern Alberta, Seabourne has a strong connection with Peterborough and the Kawartha Lakes. She was baptized in Peterborough and spent many a summer visiting her grandparents on Rogers Street, and the family cottage on Lake Catchacoma.

Her interest in the law began as a child listening to the family stories of her great grandfather Edward Armour Peck, a founding partner of the Peterborough law firm that became HOWELL FLEMING.

Seabourne studied law in Cardiff, Wales and at the University of Ottawa Law School. She was called to the Ontario Bar in 1997, realizing her dream of following in her great grandfather’s footsteps. She took a sabbatical from the daily practice of law to raise her 2 children, while continuing to hone her legal skills through research, and part time law placements.

Seabourne returned to Peterborough in 2005, and 7 years later joined Doug Walker on a full time basis, bringing her love and knowledge of estate planning and administration to a thriving real estate/commercial practice. She has embraced real estate law and developed a reputation as a lawyer who is willing to go the “extra mile” for her clients while providing hands on, personalized care. Estate Planning remains her passion. Seabourne has become the “go to lawyer” in the area for people with complex situations requiring her personalized attention to detail, and her calm, pleasant approach.

As the mother of two active children involved in a diverse array of activities Seabourne is involved with many facets of the local community and loves to get to know and help like-minded families plan for their future.

Seabourne feels blessed to be an integral part of a busy, happy law firm which boasts a support staff of highly experienced and caring individuals, as well as a well-seasoned lawyer, Douglas F. Walker, who has been a part of the local legal scene for more than 4 decades.
