Family law has been a central focus of my practice since 2002. I was an early adopter of the collaborative manner of resolving family disputes having been a founding member of the Lanark County collaborative network in 2003 when I practiced in Perth, Ontario.
Collaborative Practice allows clients to make their own decisions knowing spouses and parents are interdependent and share common interests, even during a break-up.
The Collaborative Practice is but one method of resolving disputes and in the right case, it pays dividends to all concerned – Parents and grandparents, children and extended families, and the professionals in their lives. It is often my preferred manner of solving problems because compared with the more adversarial and conflictual manners of dispute resolution, “problem finding” is prevalent with less focus on the solving part.
SullivanLaw is located in the south end of Ottawa with clients in family cases, civil actions and estate matters across Ontario, from Windsor and Milton to Toronto, Belleville and Ottawa, from Cornwall and L’Orignal to North Bay and Timmins. I am pleased to have Emily Murray as our associate lawyer in the office, together with a wonderful support staff.
