Walter McGregor (1916-2007)

Founder

Lieutenant-Colonel Walter L. McGregor, Jr. (1916-2007) was the founder of our firm.

Walter L. McGregor, Jr. attended secondary school at the Walkerville Collegiate Institute. Coming from a military family, he joined the Essex Scottish Regiment as a private in 1934 as soon as he turned eighteen. Just two years later he obtained his commission as a lieutenant.


He enrolled in law school at the University of Toronto and was commissioned to a lieutenancy with the 1st Battalion, Essex Scottish Regiment at the end of his first semester. He was quickly promoted to Captain and took part in the raid on Dieppe on August 19, 1942. 


Cpt. McGregor became one of the 1,946 prisoners of war following the raid, but was allowed to continue his study of law in the prison camp at Eichstätt in southern Germany. When he wrote to his mother telling her about the camp's education programs, she contacted the Law Society of Upper Canada, which arranged to send McGregor casebooks and study materials through the Red Cross. During the two and a half years he spent in captivity, McGregor was able to finish his second and third semesters of law school before he was liberated after the war.


McGregor returned to Windsor on June 23, 1945. That fall, he resumed his studies at Osgoode Hall and was called to the Bar.


In 1951, he began a law practice with Stewart and McWilliams in Windsor. In 1968, he opened a second office at 58 Main St E in Kingsville. Throughout his legal career, he provided general commercial advice to clients in Windsor and Kingsville and lived at the King Estate here in Kingsville.
