We have the experience and skill to guide you through the process, beginning to end. Our goal is to get to a fair resolution as amicably as possible so you can get on with your life. However, if we need to fight in court, we are not shy from firmly asserting your interests in any level of court in Alberta.

We understand the emotional and legal complexities involved in navigating the dissolution of a marriage, and we are dedicated to helping our clients achieve a fair and amicable resolution. With a deep understanding of Alberta family law, we provide personalized solutions tailored to each client’s unique circumstances. Whether it’s child custody, spousal support, child support, property division, or other divorce-related matters, we provide comprehensive legal support and work tirelessly to protect our clients’ rights and interests. Our goal is to minimize conflict, promote effective communication, and guide our clients towards a positive outcome, allowing them to move forward with their lives.

Choosing the right tactics for your case is also essential – be it mediation, judicial dispute resolution, or litigation. If your case requires other professional support, we have strong working relationships with psychologists, accountants, business and pension evaluators, and parenting
Breakups are difficult enough as is, and our aim to give the best value that we can while minimizing costs for the client during this difficult period. We try to utilize all mechanisms to save costs and expenses at the outset of the file. We feel out the opposing side to see where there is room for compromise, and whether alternative dispute resolution mechanisms make sense prior to taking drastic measures in court, and thereby avoiding unnecessary bills for the client. If the case requires lengthy litigation, we are upfront about the likely costs, and workout a payment schedule to accommodate the realities of modern life and ongoing living expenses that all of us have.
