In 1948, the late Norman F. McAuley QC, a returning RCAF veteran, moved to Dryden from his home in Orangeville, Ontario and opened the area’s first law office. At the time, he was the only lawyer between Kenora and Thunder Bay. Since that time, McAuley & Partners has provided continuous legal service to the Dryden area and surrounding communities of Sioux Lookout, Ignace, Vermilion Bay, Ear Falls, Red Lake and the Far North.
The firm is full service with emphasis on family, criminal law, corporate and commercial, real estate, and wills and estates. McAuley & Partners maintains a central office in Dryden with a branch office in Sioux Lookout.
