Brian’s practice includes all aspects of family law. His clients appreciate his ability to consistently achieve excellent results while effectively managing the difficult human issues that entangle every family law matter.
Much of Brian’s current practice involves clients who seek his legal expertise based on a recommendation from family or close friends. Often the referring party is one of Brian’s previous clients who benefited from his experience and steady focus on results.
Anger too often drives parties prematurely to court. Whenever possible, Brian recommends alternate dispute resolution. It is an effective means of resolving differences while taking into account the intense feelings that invade every matrimonial dispute. However, when necessary, Brian is an accomplished advocate and has relentlessly pursued his clients’ family law rights before every level of court in Ontario.
Brian’s clients are especially pleased with his success in both local and international adoptions. His experience and expertise has smoothed the way for many families.
