Beaches Family Law
47 Main St.
I am a family law practitioner of 27+ years, as well as an experienced Collaborative lawyer and Accredited Family Mediator. I have learned over the years that clients want the best for their children and their finances. But they also want a good negotiation process. I help them achieve that through respectful communication, and by tapping into the unique problem-solving potential of the collaborative team. The "team approach" fosters creative and durable solutions.
I work with clients who want to minimize conflict and work cooperatively. I bring on board a practical approach, coupled with a high level of personal service and compassion. I ensure that my clients are well-informed legally and that they understand the implications of their decisions. My clients feel well-supported as they undergo the life-transforming process of separation.
I am a member of the Law Society of Ontario, Canadian Bar Association, Collaborative Divorce Toronto, the Ontario Association of Collaborative Professionals, the Ontario Association for Family Mediation, the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario, and the Toronto Lawyers' Association. In my spare time, I enjoy activities that sustain both body and brain, such as music, yoga, swimming, and bettering my understanding of the science of stress as it relates to conflict and resolution.
