Family law matters are difficult, emotional, and stressful. The Family Law Group at Walker Head Lawyers recognizes this, and prides itself on protecting its clients’ legal interests, while remaining sensitive to individual needs throughout this challenging time.

Through our collaborative practice style and resolution-based approach, we strive to assist our clients and their families to find timely, sustainable, and practical solutions, wherever possible. We work with our clients to identify the issues in dispute, understand the unique family dynamic, and advocate for our clients’ personal objectives.

Some matters can be resolved through amicable negotiation, Collaborative Law or Alternative Dispute Resolution, such as mediation, while other matters may require Court intervention. We have the skillset, knowledge, and experience to identify which process is most appropriate for each client from the outset, saving time and legal fees.

We also provide mediation and arbitration services to non-clients. These services draw on our resolution-based approach and assist outside counsel and their clients to find practical and timely solutions to problems that may appear otherwise unresolvable.

Our Family Law Group frequently works on family law matters that intersect with other areas of law, including business, tax, criminal, and trusts and estates. We collaborate with other lawyers, valuators, and accountants, when necessary, to provide our clients with a fully integrated legal process.
