Thank you for taking the time to find out more about me and how I can help you.
I have 15 years of experience practising family law in the Ottawa area, with expertise in all areas, including negotiating and litigating custody and access issues, financial matters, and child and spousal support issues. I have extensive experience in dealing with family law matters by way of alternative dispute resolution, including cooperative negotiation, mediation, and collaborative practice. I have recently restricted my practice to these areas as, in my view, spouses and parents are increasingly using these methods to resolve their family law disputes, as they are generally faster, less expensive, and result in more creative solutions for the family than litigation. I am a certified collaborative lawyer and accredited family mediator (OAFM). These services are described in more detail on this website.
