Calvin William Beresh graduated with a BA from Oral Roberts University in 1975 before obtaining his LLB from the University of Western Ontario in 1978. During his final year at law school, he hosted the student law conference at Western during which the Christian Legal Fellowship was founded and was a member of the steering committee for incorporation of CLF. With a strong entrepreneurial spirit and an even stronger desire to take Christ into every man’s world, he began his own law practice in 1980. He joined with another CLF member, Ashley R. Gnys, and, together, they took over a practice established in 1894 to form the firm of Sharpe, Beresh & Gnys in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The firm now has three lawyers and fifteen support staff. Cal’s emphasis is on Wills, Estates and Wealth Management.
Cal, and his wife of 29 years, Janet, have three children, Melanie, 25, Ben, 23, and Stephen, 20. All three children followed their father’s footsteps in choosing Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma for their post-secondary education.
Cal has a passion to share his vision of Law as a ministry particularly to students. He has been meeting with students on campuses across the country and invites you to contact the CLF office to arrange for future meetings.
