Solutions Focused and Settlement Oriented Family Lawyer, Accredited Family Mediator, Certified Specialist in Family Mediation, Legal Coach, Commissioner of Oaths, and Notary Public.
I am a lawyer who is trained in a variety of legal approaches, and who enjoys using a diverse set of skills to find the right solutions for my clients' family law needs. Whether you are looking for a lawyer to assist from A to Z in your separation, or for unbundled services, and flat fees, you can trust that we will work together to find the right solution for you.
I have completed a Canadian LL.B. law degree from the University of Windsor, and an American J.D. law degree from the University of Detroit Mercy in Michigan. My passion for dispute resolution in the family law arena led me to complete a Masters of Law in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) from Osgoode Hall, and I have completed my training with the Ontario Association for Family Mediation as an Accredited Family Mediator, and am a Certified Specialist in Family Mediation with the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario.
Immediately following a rich family law focused articling term, I realized a passion in family law and mediation. For six years, I have exclusively practiced in these areas. I have had the pleasure of helping many clients find the right legal solution for their unique family law situation. I have witnessed the enormous time, financial, and emotional cost of separating parties within the court system. I have also witnessed the many benefits a "solution oriented" approach can have for my clients so I apply my training and skills through this approach as often as possible. This helps my clients navigate through one of the most difficult periods of their lives as efficiently, and cost effectively as possible.
