I have been practicing family law and civil litigation since my call to the bar in 2012. Since 2014, my practice has been focused exclusively in family law, including parenting/custody/access, child support (table child support and Section 7 special or extraordinary expenses), spousal support, and property division.
I have significant litigation experience including managing files from the outset of the process in the Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Court of Justice up to and including trial. I also have appellate experience in the Divisional Court. Outside of Court, I routinely assist clients with mediation and arbitration, as well as the preparation of cohabitation agreements, marriage contracts, and separation agreements.
I am passionate about family law because my work affects real families, with real needs. Understanding that each client may have different goals, I guide them to find a process that will work for them. Regardless of the process chosen, I strongly advocate for my clients and treat them like individuals, each with a unique set of circumstances and concerns that matter to them.
I am the President of the Rotary Club of Toronto-Leaside, which is an international organization of like-minded individuals who are committed to doing good in the community and worldwide.
