We provide experienced counsel and representation focused exclusively on family law. We practice all aspects of Ontario family law, for clients based locally and internationally. We represent individuals in separation and divorce to solve their problems concerning property division, equalization, child and spousal support, custody and access. We negotiate separation agreements, cohabitation agreements and marriage contracts. We advocate for our clients at all levels of courts in Ontario and in mediations and private arbitrations.
Our goal is to help you find an amicable settlement of your case if that is possible. To that end, we will provide you with guidance about your rights and responsibilities. We will advocate for you in negotiations directly and through counsel. We draft separation agreements, parenting plans, marriage contracts and cohabitation agreements.
When needed, we will engage third party mediators to facilitate a negotiated settlement. Mediation may be with or without counsel. We have extensive experience advocating for clients in the mediation process. Any mediated settlement requires that the parties obtain independent legal advice which we provide.
We have extensive courtroom experience at all trial and appellate court levels in Ontario. We will devise a litigation strategy to best advocate your position and to guide you to achieving your objectives.
Where appropriate we engage private arbitrators to adjudicate disputes. Arbitration is much like public court proceedings but provides more flexibility and confidentiality. We are experienced advocates in the private arbitration setting.
