Mediating family law dispute

The parties and their lawyers were able to all sit down together and have a candid discussion about the legal positions taken by both parents.  Most important, there was a frank discussion of what was best for their children.  After receiving independent legal advice, the parents were able to come to an agreement that took into consideration the legal rights of both parties. They ultimately resolved all issues of custody, access, child support, spousal support and division of matrimonial property without incurring further legal costs.

Family law meets Immigration law

The primary issue in this case was the custody of the children, which was made very difficult by the fact that the children had been removed from Canada.  Nevertheless, I was able to obtain the necessary custody orders by working through the Canadian Court system.  I then arranged to have the children returned to Canada with the help of the respective Embassies in both countries.

Family law meets Criminal law

In this case, a parent was denied child access because of  criminal allegations.  I helped the parent regain access by guiding him through first the criminal court system and later the family court, where he obtained the necessary custody and access order required to be reunited with his children.

"I have too much respect for my clients to waste their money on legal guess work."
