Over 40 years experience in Family Law - divorce, custody of children, access, child and spousal support, division of property, restraining orders, health and medical benefits, insurance and court costs.

All I practice is family law. I don't divide my time between real estate, corporate and other types of law. I work only on family cases.

We'll start by seeing if we can get you out of your problem in the quickest and cheapest way possible. We'll explore private settlements, mediation, four-way meetings - anything so you can avoid lawyers and litigation! I'll give you Web references so you can have a look at how family law deals with issues and what Separation Agreements look like. You may be able to do significant leg work on your own, without paying me.

I'll listen quietly and then set out for you the good and bad aspects of your case. Using my experience, we'll strategise how to put your best case forward. I'll give you immediate advice on how to avoid the most common pitfalls and how to prepare and conduct your case to get the best result.

If the case has to go to court, we'll move aggressively and fast. Not only do I always return phone calls the same day, usually within an hour or two, but I will produce whatever court Application or Motion is required - right away. For 40 years I have appeared in family court twice a week, on average. This benefits you greatly as I can predict how a Judge may well react to your fact situation. You can often settle and avoid court by implementing my recommendations - a result the Judge will likely impose anyway. Experienced lawyers who practice family law only and appear in court frequently are very good at forecasting what kind of Order a Judge will make. You can use this to your advantage and save money.

I'll account to you regularly so you know exactly where you stand financially; I'll make sure you immediately receive any letter or document received from the other side, and I'll give to you official Research Memorandums with case precedents dealing with the area of conflict in your case, so you can see how Judges have dealt with similar fact situations in the past. You'll always be in the loop.

So call or e-mail for a free first interview. Free parking, easy access to my office in the Glebe area of Ottawa. Separation and Divorce aren't fun, and I'll get you out as quickly as possible.
