About the Author

Richard A. Feldman, B.A., LL.B, B. ED., LL.M., has a background in geography and education. He is an Ontario Certified Teacher who has taught at the secondary and post-secondary levels. He taught law on a part-time basis for many years with Seneca College and has also taught for Osgoode Professional Development. He has been a guest lecturer for organizations such as the Medico-legal Society of Toronto, Canadian Defence Lawyers, Federated Press, Osgoode Professional Development and the Law Society of Upper Canada.

His legal career spans over 25 years. He earned his Bachelor of Laws degree from Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1990. He has also earned his Master of Laws degree, specializing in civil litigation and dispute resolution.

Although Mr. Feldman began private practice as a litigation lawyer in the Toronto area, most of his legal career has been spent as an adjudicator on various provincial tribunals. He was a founding Member of what is now known as the Landlord and Tenant Board. He served two terms there, adjudicating disputes involving residential tenancies. He quickly gained a reputation for his expertise in this field. During his time as a Member of the Rental Housing Tribunal, Mr. Feldman issued over 9,000 written decisions.

Mr. Feldman then joined the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) where, for over twelve years, he presided over disputes arising under the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule of the Insurance Act. He acted first as an Arbitrator (adjudicator), then as the managing Senior Arbitrator and, finally, as the Delegate of the Director of Arbitrations, hearing appeals from first-level decisions of Arbitrators.

In January 2017, Mr. Feldman left FSCO to accept a full-time teaching position with Humber College as a Professor of Law in its Paralegal Program.  Mr. Feldman teaches courses on, amongst other subjects, Tribunal Practice and Procedure, Advocacy and, of course, Residential Landlord and Tenant Law. His textbook, Residential Tenancies, is currently required reading for students in Humber’s Paralegal Program.
