Partner, B.A., LL.B.
Christine has been practising family law since 2005, and has experience with litigation and with alternative dispute resolution, including mediation. She represents clients who have legal needs related to all aspects of family law, with a keen interest in child custody and access matters. She’s also a member of the Legal Panel for the Attorney General’s Office of the Children’s Lawyer (OCL), where she represents children involved in family law matters.
Christine is best known for helping clients make practical, reasonable decisions during a very vulnerable and emotional time in their lives. Her style and approach helps reduce the emotional and financial stress throughout the entire process, and achieve positive results in the most efficient way possible. While Christine prefers to negotiate cooperative and reasonable resolutions outside the courts, she has significant litigation experience and is a strong advocate for her clients no matter the venue. She is comfortable and confident before a Judge or a Mediator, and has successfully represented clients at various levels of court.
Christine works hard to make her clients feel heard and understood. Christine understands that as family counsel, she is often conveying advice and information that may be challenging to absorb and accept; she respects her client’s emotional involvement in their matter, while still encouraging logical, well-thought decisions. She believes that even the most contentious matter can be handled with grace and dignity.
Outside of work, Christine enjoys the outdoors with her husband and two active boys. She loves fiction novels, movies, music and theatre.
