A little more about me

I’m a family lawyer in Toronto offering 35 years of legal experience, knowledge and commitment.

My philosophy is simple: Every family is different and each client deserves to receive tailored strategies and solutions that meet their specific needs and objectives. I believe that people should be able to make informed, educated decisions about their legal circumstances.

I graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1986. I was called to the Ontario Bar in 1988. I am a member of the Law Society of Ontario.

I focus exclusively in family law and mediation and bring many years of knowledge and skills to the table, including comprehensive experience in parenting issues, property division, spousal and child support, and child protection issues.

My clients appreciate my ability to listen, to consider their needs when designing solutions for them, and to strongly advocate for them.

Outside of my work, I’m a mother of two children. I enjoy gardening, reading historical novels, exploring Toronto neighbourhoods, and travelling with my family.
