From 1999 to 2005, she was a panel lawyer for the Office of the Children’s Lawyer. She is a Dispute Resolution Officer with the Superior Court of Justice in Brampton, and a Roster Mediator with Peel Family Mediation Services. She is a regular presenter at on and off-site Family Law Information Sessions. Marie teaches Alternate Dispute Resolution and trains professionals in the Collaborative Law Process.
Marie believes that It is important that separating and divorcing couples understand all process options available to them to resolve their legal issues resulting from marriage or cohabitation and separation and divorce. And also that they fully understand their legal positions, together with their obligations and entitlements, when entering into a Separation Agreement, which is a legally binding document.
All resolution process options, including a Court process, Mediation, Arbitration and Collaborative Law, are legal processes that Marie can help you with.
