Carolyn Warner has represented me on matters of family law, and my experience has been positive. In the process she has kept me up to-date in my personal matters. I have also referred several clients to her who needed her expertise. Carolyn is a dedicated and committed professional who will provide positive results.

For a few years, I have been following the articles and podcasts generated by Russell Alexander. While working for the Newfoundland Supreme Court, I often shared the information with colleagues. After my return to Ontario, I am still doing so, and I often refer clients to their website. I find the information provided clear, knowledgeable, straight forward and very useful. As an accredited family mediator, I obviously hope that people will avoid court if at all possible. However, insight and knowledge is power and Russell and his associates certainly provide it.

I have been providing legal services for Russell Alexander's firm for close to twenty years. Throughout this period I have always been struck by the dedication, professionalism and efficiency of his front line staff.People such as Dani have forever provided the supports and expertise that have made my services so much easier to perform, something I am sure the clients of the firm appreciate.It is a priviledge to rate the buisness so highly and I do not see that changing as long as people like Dani and Ashley and Darla and Kaitlyn are there to ensure its smooth operation.Bob Harbic (B-Served legal services)

The entire experience with the office of Russell Alexander from the very beginning exceeded my expectations. I was blown away by the amount of detail and information requested during the online intake form. This was a great thing because it made me think of things I may not have thought of to mention and also helped me prepare for the call. The phone meeting with Bill Rogers was also exceptional. He was very detail oriented, relatable and I left feeling confident in my decision and next steps. If I should need further family law services, he will be the first person I reach out to.

As a family law attorney for more than two decades in Ontario, Russell Alexander is highly skilled in his craft of navigating the complexities of divorce, separation and family mediation. Through his blog, essays and interviews in mass-market publications, and Amazon best-selling book with another book coming out later this year, he has worked to share that hard-won knowledge so that everyday Canadians can make informed decisions about their own lives. His emphasis on collaborative law and mediation has made him a thought-leader on how families can get through difficult times while avoiding damaging and emotionally draining courtroom fights. If you are looking for someone who can break things down and explain the consequences in plain English, Alexander should be the first person you talk with.

My lawyer at the Russell Alexander law firm was ethical and experienced. He outlined my options when it came to leaving my spouse. After much consideration, I chose collaborative divorce as an alternative to the traditional court process. It was a relief to be in the hands of someone who was competent in his abilities. My lawyer was able to mediate the situation so that both parties reached an acceptable agreement. Now I can move on with my life. I am very pleased with the advice and services I received.

Before I was referred to Russell Family Law, I hired some other firm which wasted time, never followed through or produced documents, and didn’t return my calls. I was devastated, but a good friend told me about Russell and at our very first meeting, I knew he was the right person to represent me. He did a spectacular job and I will always be grateful to him and the incredible staff he employs. Thanks, Russell and team for a job very well done.

I left my home and my husband told me I would get nothing and had given up my rights. I was so scared. I went to Russell and he was able to have the home sold and I got my half. He also got me an alimony order and the judge told my husband to pay for my lawyer’s bill. Thank you, Russell, for being there for me. I would have been homeless without you.

I hired Russel after firing my first divorce lawyer which was a total waste of my time. Russel is a very decent and caring person, as well as an aggressive litigator. Hire him if you want the best. I couldn’t be more happier with Russel, his demeanor, his knowledge, and how efficiently he communicated with me.
