Susan is knowledgeable, experienced and graced with uncommon sense. She can help you navigate your way through the harrowing family law jungle, whether you are separating from your spouse, you are named in a family law suit or you are embarking on a new relationship and need a pre-nup.


This is what Susan has to say about practicing family law:


“I try to be as efficient with my time as I can. I don't waste my clients' money. If there is any possibility of settling the issues, I will recommend an agreement rather than the much more expensive option of going to court. Having said that, sometimes there is just no other option. If court is the only path to take, we will go into battle together. I enjoy a good fair fight.”


Give Susan a call. She and her friendly, efficient assistant Darlene can help you with all your family law issues.

Susan has a Bachelor of Arts from York University and graduated from the University of Ottawa law school in 1985


She was called to the Ontario Bar in 1987 and to the BC bar in 1991. Susan lives and works in the Ottawa (Nepean) area. She is a sole practitioner. Her firm is located in the Bells Mews Plaza, at 2039 Robertson Road, Suite 209. There is free parking available in the plaza lot.
