Russell Alexander Family Lawyers is thrilled to announce that our blog, FamilyLLB, was a finalist in the Fodden Award for Best Canadian Law Blog category of the 2014 Clawbies (Canadian Law Blog Awards). After winning in the Best Practitioner Blogs category last year, it was a tremendous honour to be in the running for the top award, and very rewarding to have our blogging recognized.
Congratulations to Leonid Sirota, whose blog Double Aspect took the top honours, and to fellow finalists Karim Renno for his blog À bon droit, and McCarthy Tétrault LLP for their blog Canadian Appeals Monitor. We certainly were in good company with these and all the other Clawbies finalists and winners.
Russell has been blogging at FamilyLLB for over five years, on topics of interest to Ontario families going through separation, divorce, custody issues and other matters related to family law. In December, his piece on the family law case Leung v Shanks was named as a Top 10 most read post on the Canadian legal commentary site CanLII Connects.
