Senior Associate Lawyer
I am a Collaborative Family Lawyer and Mediator. I work with amicably separating couples as well as those considering marriage or cohabitation. At the heart of my work is my belief that my clients deserve compassionate, legal advice and a dignified, legal process. I always strive to offer customized, practical solutions for clients undergoing separation and divorce in order to arrive at an out-of-court settlement.
For clients negotiating the terms of a committed relationship, I provide expert advice on creating a durable Cohabitation Agreement or a Marriage Contract.
I also help all my clients get their affairs in order by drafting their Wills and Powers of Attorney as they transition to a new phase of life.
In my professional circles, I currently serve as the Vice-Chair of the Collaborative Divorce Toronto (CDT) Board of Directors and the Chair of CDT’s Equity Diversity and Inclusion Committee. I am also a member of the Ontario Association of Collaborative Professionals and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
Prior to law school, I earned a Master of Arts degree in art history then worked with art professionals, thereby accumulating considerable experience implementing creative solutions that result in highly effective outcomes for my clients. I speak French and Korean as well as read and understand Spanish and Italian. I believe that my experience with creative professionals and my proficiency in languages have given me a unique insight and competency in culture, communication and negotiation.
On weekends, I like to play tennis and golf in the summer; ski in the winter; and salsa dance all year-round. I grew up in Toronto and raised two great kids in the GTA. One is now an LGBTQ advocate / writer on Saturday Night Live in New York and the other an aspiring filmmaker / coder, based in Toronto (evidently neither in law!).
“I was very fortunate to have Jane Huh as my lawyer through my recent divorce. She was recommended to me and I can see why. She was always a pleasure to work with, always professional, always up front, always on top of things, but almost more importantly, I always felt assured that Jane was in my corner. She pushed when she needed to push, held firm when she needed to hold firm and always had my best interests and a collaborative resolution at heart. I can’t recommend her higher.”
