In a recent published article by The Lindsay Advocate, family lawyer Paul Riley had the opportunity to discuss his childhood upbringing and how it has played a role in his current success. Growing up in both Jamaica and Canada, Riley has been able to properly pay homage to his mother and the doors she has opened for him through their immigration by now becoming a successful lawyer.
Riley’s early life started in Jamaica, where he spent time living with his grandmother as his mother set off to Canada in hopes of seeking a better life for herself and children. Upon turning nine, Riley then joined his mother in Canada where his new life began. As a child, he aspired to be both a television reporter and a lawyer. Through obtaining his undergraduate degree from Dalhousie University, and another degree in journalism from Humber College, the former student athlete was set and well equipped to achieve these aspirations. Paul has been able to take on both careers as a former anchor with CBC and the founding lawyer of The Riley Divorce and Family Law Firm.
The article highlights Paul Riley’s unique background, explaining how he used his circumstances as motivation to achieve some of his greatest accomplishments. He has done an excellent job in using his circumstances and family background to give back through his work and career path.
