Lawyer/Mediator/Collaborative Family Law Lawyer/Power Imbalance and Family Violence Screener
Marie-Hélène was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1998 and has practiced criminal law and family law as a sole practitioner in Cambridge, Kitchener, Orangeville, Milton, Brampton, Toronto, and Ottawa Ontario.
Her focus in offering mediation services commenced in January of 2004. She comes from two (2) reputable Orléans Firms, one she joined in January, 2011 where she practiced in the areas of family law and offered mediation services, exclusively for 10 years and the other where she championed in these areas for fourteen (14) months.
Marie-Hélène is the co-founder of BiG Law Boutique, a personalized mediation and legal services practice. She continues to develop a boutique approach that will be client-focused and geared towards the “care” factor when navigating a new relationship journey, reconstructed family dynamic, high conflict family violence and other challenges, separation and divorce.
Although she is an experienced litigator, the focus of Marie-Hélène’s practice is on achieving a fair, sound and reasoned settlement for her clients without having to live the court experience. This focus mirrors the goal of mediation services, of the Collaborative Family Law process and of the family dispute resolution realm. In certain situations, court is inevitable. Marie-Hélène will guide you and support you through the litigation process. She will leave no stone unturned. Marie-Hélène recognizes the need to see you through difficult emotional times and delicate, challenging tasks, such as restructuring your family in a respectful, dignified, and co-operative manner.
Marie-Hélène is bilingual and offers legal and mediation services in both official languages. Vous pouvez communiquer avec Marie-Hélène en français. My areas of practice include: High conflict disputes; Divorce / Separation
