“When my clients are overwhelmed by a separation, divorce or custody issue, I give them an honest assessment of their situation, help determine their priorities, and develop a plan for confidently moving forward.”
I value sharing my legal expertise and tackling intricate legal issues. I am a past-president of the Middlesex Family Lawyers Association (MFLA), a former part-time Professor at Fanshawe College for family law, am proud to have published numerous academic papers, and am a regular guest lecturer at family law conferences and education seminars.
I am an Accredited Family Mediator (AccFM) with the Ontario Association for Family Mediation (OAFM), and also an accredited Collaborative Family Lawyer — two important process options for resolving family law matters amicably and outside of court.
I work closely with my clients to ensure that they understand their rights, appreciate their options, and make well-informed decisions. While some clients will need to commence a court process, many families are well suited to alternatives such as mediation, collaborative law, arbitration, and direct negotiations.
My spare time is spent staying active, indulging in my love of cooking, and volunteering with Growing Chefs! Ontario to promote youth food education.
Please contact me for advice regarding your family law matter, including separation, divorce, child and spousal support, property issues, and custody and access.
