North Vancouver Lawyer, Collaborative Divorce Lawyer & Mediator

Finding a family lawyer that you can trust is imperative to achieving a timely and beneficial resolution.

My Approach to Family Law

I focus on interests and preserving relationships instead of the traditional win-lose approach. My clients have access to alternative dispute resolution processes such as Collaborative Divorce, mediation and negotiation. As a result, I frequently achieve settlements without resorting to costly litigation.

I am compassionate, practical and solution-focused. My goal is to resolve disputes efficiently, cost-effectively and with minimal conflict. I empower my clients to regain control of their lives and their futures.

I advise my clients on the full range of family law issues including marriage and cohabitation agreements (also known as “pre-nuptial” agreements); separation agreements; property and debt division; child support; spousal support; parenting issues (guardianship, parenting time and custody); and divorce.

  • Ahhhh, how did my separation agreement go? Well is anyone's separation fun? Probably not... but as far as the legal stuff went, Amalia was a joy to work with. It's always daunting retaining a lawyer because we all know they seemingly bill by the millisecond... but Amalia has time efficiency and friendliness as well as expertise and professionalism at the forefront of her service offering. I really appreciated Amalia getting my separation agreement done... very thoroughly and as seamlessly as possible.
