Mission Statement

“I believe the issues surrounding family law and divorce to be the most potentially devastating events a person can encounter in their lifetime. 

I believe you should not have insult added to injury by having your time, money and energy drained from you by ineffective representation. I vow to move your case forward as quickly and efficiently as possible.

I believe every client should have a voice and be an active participant in their own litigation.

I am here to solve problems, not create them.

I believe that children are not owned by their parents as something to fight over, but are owed love, protection, and care. I will not condone or participate in behaviour that is harmful to the well-being of children.

I believe that children should be protected from the chaos of adult problems and decisions as much as possible and I will not include them in the legal process.

I believe that families come in all shapes and sizes and we are active in the support of our brothers and sisters in the LGBT community.

I believe in remembering that I am a counsellor at law and I am committed to helping you get through to a safe and secure “new normal” through the use of financial planners, mental health professionals and more.”

“I want to thank you for your work in handling my separation.  Thank you for helping to create a separation arrangement inside of which our son is properly taken care of both emotionally and financially, and that his parents can get on creating the next part of their lives.   I want you to know you made a difference in how I get to live my Life.”
