Renée has practiced family law exclusively since 2001. She is passionate about helping her clients find resolutions to their parenting or financial issues based on mutual respect and understanding. She appreciates, especially where children are involved, that parties benefit from an approach that allows them to retain a working relationship going forward.
Renée has taken extensive training in mediation and collaborative law to become as effective as possible in non-adversarial negotiations. However, when a collaborative approach is not successful or possible she is able to guide her clients through the court system due to her litigation experience.
Renée is a private Mediator and acts as a Dispute Resolution Officer (mediator) in the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta. Renée also volunteers her time with law students who are completing their bar admission through the Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education and with members of the community through Calgary Legal Guidance.
Renée has a keen interest in drafting agreements including those for cohabitation, pre-nuptial, marriage and settlement.
Renée studied at Memorial University of Newfoundland and received her law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2000. Renée is married and is the proud parent of three young and very busy children.
If you and your partner or spouse would like to attend mediation with Renée or schedule an initial case assessment and consultation, please feel free to contact her.
