My commitment to practicing law is to provide top notch legal services to my clients. I offer legal advice and services based on over 20 years of experience. I bring a strong sense of professionalism to each case and run my practice with the utmost of integrity. I have extensive litigation experience with numerous appearances in both Supreme Court and Provincial Court. I also recognize that litigation is not the best method of resolving matters in many cases and am committed to try to address matters outside of the court process when possible. I am an accredited family law mediator and collaborative family lawyer, which enables me to offer various options to my clients.

I practice mainly in the area of family law, including issues around separation, divorce, support, property & debt (personal and business) and children (guardianship, parenting time, parenting responsibilities). I prepare cohabitation agreements and separation agreements. I interview children for the preparation of non-evaluative Hear the Child reports
