Family Roster Mediation Details
$350 - $375 / hour

Unless specifically agreed in advance, I do not charge for cancelled mediations.


I have been a lawyer, in private practice, since 1988. Over the years, my practice has moved from a general practice, with a focus on family law, to a specialized practice in family law.

I am a mediator and collaborative practitioner and strive to provide the best service I can to my clients.

I am a great believer in common sense and practical solutions. Kindness and a sense of humour are also valuable assets in the world of conflict resolution.

I have had the privilege of seeing family law move from the courtroom to the (mediation) boardroom and firmly believe that agreements that parties create themselves are, whenever possible, the best agreements for families.

Conflict is not something that anyone welcomes; however it is inevitable and it can be managed. We can't always control what happens to us; however, we can control how we respond.
