About Donna

Collaboration + Technology + Over 30 Years as a Family Law Lawyer

I help people resolve separation agreements and divorce cases without going to court.  I negotiate and create cohabitation agreements and marriage contracts (sometimes referred to as prenups).

This brief video explains a little bit about why the collaborative, non-adversarial approach is important to me personally and beneficial for clients.   

I have many years of training and experience in collaborative negotiations and conflict resolution.   I completed a Dealing with Difficult Conversations course at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School and an Advanced Alternative Dispute Resolution workshop through the University of Windsor Law School.

I offer clients the use of current technology including the CollabR8 family law platform and Clio, which enables clients to have online access to their files (soon via a smartphone app).

My volunteer work includes contributing to the creation of Luke’s Place and to the creation and development of its Legal Advisory Group and Pro Bono Legal Clinic. I currently volunteer with the Luke’s Place Virtual Pro Bono Legal Clinic and on committes with Kawartha Collaborative Practice and Collaborative Practice Durham Region.
