Collaborative Family Law & Mediation Services
Serving in Burlington, Waterdown, and Dundas

Control and create a positive outcome for your family.

We believe that the collaborative family law process and mediation truly achieve the best outcome for families. Not only are they efficient and practical, usually resulting in an agreement, but they also acknowledges the difficult emotional issues that are often associated with complex family situations. It is a constructive and respectful approach for those who want to create the best possible future for themselves and their families.

The advantages of the process include resolution within a short time-frame and at a lower cost, compared with a court process. As the client, you control the outcome, rather than judges and lawyers, and you can customize your own solution. This enables you to be more creative with the results compared with what a court can do. As a result, you will likely be more satisfied with the outcome, and you can create a solution that will provide the greatest benefit for your children.

What our clients say…
We first met Karen about four years ago when we were faced with my teenage daughter’s desire to change her living arrangement and come live with me. Karen was very compassionate and took the time required to listen and suggest alternatives to going to court to resolve any potential change in custody. We made attempts at that time to change the situation but the time was not right for my daughter to move in with us. We took Karen’s advice to heart in trying to keep our situation out of court in the best interest of my daughter.
Recently, my daughter made the decision, on her own (while still a minor), to come and live with us. I immediately contacted Karen for advice on what to do in the situation and Karen remembered my situation from when we had spoke years before. Again, Karen skillfully navigated the negotiations to resolve the change in residence for my daughter from her mother’s home to ours. Karen’s skill, tact and compassion resulted in a new signed custody agreement without having to go thru the court process.
I was kept informed throughout the process of any updates and changes either by Karen or the administrative staff, namely Rose and Heather. The entire team was very accommodating for communicating information via e-mail or through telephone appointments as my work schedule is unconventional and I live out of town. I never once felt that I was a burden or that my questions or concerns were not important. At times when I had communication with a different team member, namely Andrew at the end of the process, they were always well aware of the progress that had been made in the situation and the meetings were seamless.
The entire Brown Lawyers team treats each situation with the utmost integrity and respect.
