About Me

The Collaborative Family Law Group of London and Middlesex are independent lawyers and other professionals who share common beliefs.

  • I am so happy with the results that I received from utilizing Collaborative Law. Any marital breakdown is stressful, but my lawyer was a true professional and was always there to guide or answer any questions I had during the whole separation process. I am completely satisfied with my results and would recommend Collaborative Law to anyone seeking legal representation to support them through this difficult phase of marital breakdown.

    Jennifer L.

  • Going through a marital separation was certainly one of the most painful and confusing experiences of my life. My good fortune, though, was to have a collaborative lawyer. My lawyer helped me make sense of the way the legal system dealt with this situation, clarifying my legal rights. Her knowledge, problem solving ability, and compassion supported me in keeping a sense of perspective throughout the process.
