Philip Osterhout – 613-236-0111 ext 3187

Phil joined Soloway Wright as a summer student in 2015 and returned to the firm for his articles in 2016/17 after completing his Juris Doctor at Queen’s University.

While at Queen’s, he volunteered at the Legal Aid Clinic and worked on various projects with Pro Bono Students Canada.  As an Ottawa native, he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Carleton University, where he graduated with highest honours.

Phil was drawn to a career in law because of its broad application to everyday life.  He enjoys puzzles and is motivated by the unique and diverse issues that arise in the law.  

Phil is a third-degree black belt in taekwon-do and has competed internationally.  He is also a dedicated Sens fan who, unfortunately, is a very poor skater.


Desneiges Teddy – 613-236-0111 ext. 3188

Des joined Soloway Wright in the summer of 2015 as a second year law student and has returned to the firm for articling in 2016/17. Recently graduated from the Juris Doctor program at the University of Windsor, Faculty of Law, Des participated in Community Legal Aid and Pro Bono Students Canada. Des was also the co-chair of Ask Law during her second year, a committee dedicated to strengthening Windsor Law’s orientation program and first year student’s transition into law school.

Prior to law school, Des completed a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Communications with a Minor in Linguistics at Carleton University, where she graduated on the Dean’s Honour List.

Des’ interests in collaborative problem solving and research inspired her to pursue a career in the law and she looks forward to the many new experiences and challenges that await her.

Away from the office, Des enjoys painting and everything outdoors.
