“Careful, considerate advice to fit your unique circumstances.”

- Renée Konotopsky

Renée Konotopsky

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.

Moe Hannah LLP

Client safety is important to Moe Hannah and so is client service. The health of our staff and clients is our top priority.  If clients and counsel prefer to work remotely during this difficult time, options exist for us to provide this service. Moe Hannah is able to do “virtual” non face-to-face meeting through internet conferencing.  We can do virtual consultations, mediation, or mediation/arbitration.
 
We can make it easy!
 
We will email a link for the conference to each person. The only requirement is internet access and a device suitable for the conference, ideally a camera and microphone.  Some people just use their cell phones. 
 
If you have any questions, please call or email us to talk about how we can make this work. 
 
We can still meet at Moe Hannah LLP for those people that would prefer to personally attend.  Everyone entering our office will be screened in accordance with the latest Alberta Health Guidelines. 
 
Our lawyers and assistants are set up to work remotely and we will continue mediation, mediation/arbitration and client meetings using Teams Video Conferencing, as well as our regular telephone conferencing.
 
Consider Alternative Dispute Resolution
 
The Courts have announced that they are limiting access to urgent family law mattes. In light of this, parties may want to consider the mediation/arbitration process.  Please get in touch with your lawyer and/or assistant if you have any questions regarding your matter.
 
We look forward to working with you and helping you move forward during this difficult time.
