Over a 20 year career in Family Law, I have come to understand that every family is unique and complicated and it takes strong and compassionate legal leadership when things go wrong. It’s why I am directly involved in all files and why I have been able help all parties navigate towards the right outcome for their children.
It’s also why I have developed a simple approach to Family Law.
Step 1: Make Minimum Impact.
Identify options that are cost effective that minimize the negative effect on you and your children.
Step 2: Listen. Learn. Do.
Educate parents on the issues themselves (such as custody, access, child support, spousal support and equalization), and the available settlement options (including negotiation, mediation, arbitration or court involvement).
Step 3: Take Comfort in Knowledge.
Ensure that my clients are always up to date and aware of what’s happening on their files. The legal process can be challenging and slow. Knowing how to respond and what is happening is critical for any parent involved in the process.
