I help clients who want to resolve their separation and divorce wisely, protect important relationships, and move forward with their lives. I bring a recognized capacity to negotiate creative settlements that satisfy my client’s interests and values, when the dynamics are challenging and the issues complex.
While my experience includes working with a broad range of family law clients, my practice focuses on serving professionals, business owners and their spouses with high net worth or complex financial issues. I provide skillful and compassionate conflict resolution that fosters a respectful process and helps my clients create their best possible results.
I work as a Collaborative Lawyer, mediator, writer and educator. I am a former Adjunct Professor of Collaborative Lawyering at Osgoode Hall Law School. I am an internationally recognized trainer in the process of Collaborative Practice, settlement advocacy, negotiation and communication skills. I am a member of Chestnut Collaborative Solutions, an interdisciplinary group of independent professionals. I am a member of the Board of Directors for Collaborative Practice Toronto. I am co-author of Collaborative Family Law, Another Way to Resolve Family Disputes, published by Carswell.
