Family matters & domestic relations

Family Law Winnipeg

Our approach to family law matters is collaborative, whenever possible.

We believe our clients want the most efficient, least expensive and conflict-free resolution attainable.

We offer mediation and advise our clients to collaborate and negotiate.

We offer a complete collaborative law process for our clients who wish to avoid litigation.

The issues involved in settling child custody and family property can be very difficult and expensive and we know our clients feel a pressing need for as smooth a path to resolution as possible.

We also understand that not all family disputes can be resolved through negotiation.

When that is true, we litigate in a respectful and compassionate manner.

Many situations require only minimal judicial intervention, while some require more intensive preparation, assessment and argument.

We litigate with compassion and with the future of your children, your co-parenting relationship and your finances in mind.
