As a certified family law specialist, I am here to help you in any way.
What is a family law specialist? In Ontario, lawyers are regulated by the Law Society of Upper Canada (“LSUC”). The LSUC also runs the Certified Specialist program, which qualifies lawyers as specialists in their particular area of practice. The standards for acceptance are high. As such, the LSUC is confident in recommending specialists to handle complex matters.
I am certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a family law specialist. I am proud to be a member of this esteemed group. I made the effort to obtain specialist accreditation as I believe that it is a means of distinguishing myself from the many other lawyers either practising, or dabbling in, family law.
