Annie has practiced exclusively in the area of family law for more than 15 years. In keeping with her belief that there is no “one size fits all” solution in family law, Annie is as comfortable amicably negotiating a resolution as she is aggressively advocating in court. Her versatility makes her skilled in all levels of advocacy including negotiation, mediation, litigation and collaborative practice.
In addition to her experience with legal cases, Annie is passionately involved in the family law community. She currently serves as Chair of the Canadian Bar Association, Family Law Section and she has previously served in various capacities (including as Chair) of the Ontario Bar Association, Family Law Section. Annie has chaired numerous continuing legal education programs including the OBA’s Family Law Institute.
In addition to chairing programs, Annie often lectures to lawyers, law clerks and students about various family law issues. Annie has been a contributing writer for Lexis Practice Advisor and is always eager to get involved in family law initiatives that will improve access to justice.
