Ms. Crichlow came highly recommended and she did not disappoint. Having Ms Crichlow as my legal advisor was a true blessing. She is a sensational lawyer. She is very professional, extremely knowledgeable, hard working, understanding, and helpful. She gave sound advice and support. Would recommend her for anyone that needs a family lawyer and legal advice.

I have known Dawn personally for 15 years and I would not hesitate to recommend her and the firm she works for. Dawn is a very warm, kind-hearted and positive person. You will find her easy to talk to and a great listener. She has a genuine compassion for helping people and will go out of her way to do so. I admire her desire to be continually engaged in life-long learning in both her personal and professional life.

Susanna was very professional and careful to keep expectations in check! She did not over promise, and was very clear on what to expect at each stage of the process! Even when tensions were high, Susanna was able to keep a calm demeanour and steady course. Highly recommend Susanna for her professionalism and diligent work ethic.

Having Susanna Crichlow represent me was a blessing. I have never had a lawyer pay so much attention to my case. She was thoughtful and compassionate in my adversarial custody case. Susanna goes above and beyond for her clients. I was on legal aid during the time as her client and I was treated as I would be as a paying client. She went over above and beyond handling my case with care. She was also always asking how my daughter was doing and wanted to make sure she was receiving what she needed as well. She was not just my lawyer, she was more than that. She was always looking out for our best interests and did so with tenacity and grace. If you are looking for a family lawyer who will look after your families needs,Susanna is definitely who you want in your corner. I will forever be thankful for all she has done for us.Jessica

As a Family Neutral in the Collaborative Law Process and an Accredited Family Mediator, I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle Mulchin many times in the last five years. Michelle's proficiency in family law and her advanced knowledge of major trends in case law, combined with a refreshingly honest and open approach with her clients, has made her a very respected lawyer in the Collaborative community. While Michelle is open minded and respectful of her client's autonomy, she also holds a great sense of responsibility, ensuring her clients understand the law and how it could impact them as they move forward in their separation. She has the unique ability to be clear, creative, imaginative and perceptive, while at the same time is able to be firm and assertive when necessary. I would definitely recommend Michelle as a five star family lawyer.

Nafisa Nazarali is an exceptional lawyer, who approaches all cases with due care and professionalism. Her advice and guidance is insightful. It is critical for me as a lawyer that when I refer clients to another lawyer, my clients are treated with respect and courtesy and their cases are handled with the highest level of competency. For these reasons, we have been referring clients to Nafisa for years.Family Law is a highly contentious and acrimonious area of law, but with Nafisa, you can be sure that you will have someone who will be calm and measured in her approach, with an aim to resolving your matter without unnecessary delay. But if the matter calls for it, she can also be a pit-bull!

I was so happy to see Amanda had joined the team here are Russell’s firm. I dealt directly with Amanda many times when she worked as a clerk at the court house in the family department. Not only was she the most helpful of all the staff (I would literally let people go ahead of me to wait to get her) she was beyond compassionate and gave me so much needed confidence in a system that at times feels impossible to navigate. I can’t tell you how much comfort she turned a very stressful situation into on more then a few occasions. As someone that had extensive motions in the family court system for 8 long years I wouldn’t trust anyone else to give me the guidance and support then Amanda!

I am a lawyer and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst who worked with many Family Law Professionals and Family Lawyers up till my retirement in 2019. In that capacity I was part of a number of collaborative family law teams with Michelle Mulchan who acted as Family Counsel for one of the two spouses. Michelle is a highly organized and professional counsel who represents her clients tenaciously and with great skill - but always in a fair minded fashion. Michelle consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic, anticipates issues that might effect the family and communicates clearly and frequently. Michelle also advances the needs of the entire family in a balanced and holistic approach - recognizing that "families are forever'" and that the process should be one that builds the family's next operating model. Michelle is highly ethical and creative in her approaches - understanding that each family and client is unique. I would recommend Michelle without reservation to my friends and family.

After doing my research and reading reviews, I decided to go with this firm to represent me. The person who took my case was Rick Peticca. From the very first phone call Rick was knowledgeable and professional. He answered my questions in detail and timely Manner. My case was complex and Rick Peticca made sure he got the best possible result that was fair for everyone. When you acquire his services he as your best interest in mind at all times. What made this process bearable was the Amount of information Rick provided to my questions and his suggestions on how we should proceed. If anyone wins in this type of situation, I would say that Rick got a win on my case. I would strongly recommend this firm to anyone looking for the services that they provide. Thanks for all your hard work Rick Peticca.

Brittany is easy to talk to, hardworking and compassionate. She really cares about helping people and is mindful of costs. I wish I had someone like her to represent me during my separation. It would have saved me a lot of aggravation and headaches. The lawyer I chose during my separation pressured me to go to court, kept me in the dark, and treated me like their emoloyee.  Choosing the right lawyer during a marital issue is really important. If you are looking for a lawyer to represent your best interests I definitely recommend going with Brittany. She will take care of you.

I would not hesitate to recommend Margie-Primero Pimentel. Ms. Primero always approached my matter in a common sense way that, in the end, resolved my matter efficiently and left the most money in my pocket. I greatly appreciated her calm demeanor and ability to clearly explain the process to me.

My experience with Russell Alexander Law Office was extremely professional and thorough, while providing me a sense of calm and understanding during the entire process of my case. My lawyer, Adam Borer, took the time to explain the necessary details and ensure that every effort was made to make my requests a reality. Adam was empathetic to my case, yet maintained a strong focus on moving forward, finding the very best solutions to issues that arose within my case. I couldn’t be happier with my entire experience, from start to finish: including the professionalism of the office, the courteous manner in which I was greeted by the secretaries/law clerks at each visit and with every email/phone correspondence, the level of experience and honesty from Adam Borer and the overall level of care and expertise. I am so grateful that Adam was able to help me win my case. I am extremely confident in recommending this law office to anyone who is seeking representation in family law. Thank you!

I have had the pleasure of working with Nafisa Nazarali for over 2 years. The entire time she has been realistic, informative, helpful but most importantly she has ALWAYS been there when I have needed her. Her experience and wealth of knowledge have went above and beyond my expectations. Whether it is Kaitlyn or Nafisa, they are super prompt at getting back to me and have never had an issue dealing with my complicated matter. I will never be able to thank both Nafisa and Kaitlyn enough for everything they’ve done. I would, without hesitation, recommend them to anyone!

I had bad experiences with 2 lawyers so I had given up on my Divorce and Financial Property/Support claim. Adam Borer is one of the best lawyers I have spoken to. No one responds faster than this guy. If you want things done fast and on time this guy will do it. The communication is amazing with his clients. I knew he was the one in my first consultation with him. Very caring, supportive, helpful, informative and honest. And for me honesty is the best policy. Thank you once again Adam. Sahar

I had an initial consult with Lori Dubin concerning a family law (separation) matter. I ran the situation by Lori and asked her lots of 'what if' questions. She had a logical explanation to my all my concerns about what my spouse threats to do and strategy to counter to what I may be attacked with by my spouse. It was surely very much comforting to have spoken to her and definitely has put my mind at ease.Per her, she's a NO BS kinda lawyer and tries to keep the case out of the courts as much as possible but at the same time not afraid to go to court if required.

Bill Rogers is an amazing lawyer. He is understanding and caring. He has so much empathy and kindness that you know he is putting 150% in for you. He is very easy to talk to during this time of stress. You never feel rushed or like your just another client to him. He explains everything clearly so you actually understand what is going on. After speaking to him for the first time I knew that I could easily be comfortable working with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a family lawyer.

I had an excellent consultation with Carolyn Warner and am confident she is the best person to represent my case. Family law matters are extremely sensitve and require patience, understanding, and clear directive. After speaking with Carolyn, she put all of my worries at ease and I am confident I will come out of this case successful with my needs. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for legal support.

Susanna was very on top of specific details involving my case. So much so that she often made me feel like I was the only client she had. She represented me with honesty and integrity, was knowledgeable of how to approach different judges and their expectations, very well spoken inside the courtroom and detailed in her written correspondence. Deadlines/dates were never an issue. I had multiple trips to the courthouse and left on the winning side each and every time and in the end, I got an agreement signed that I am extremely happy with.Brandon T.

I recently worked with Nafisa Nazarali and the team at Russell Alexander when dealing with a custody situation. Nafisa was fantastic - walked me through the whole process, was upfront about fees and timelines, managed my expectations perfectly. I have had no surprise costs or unexpected delays. The entire team has been a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend this firm if you need assistance with any Family Law matters.

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.

Not having any quality legal counsel in my pocket, I went to google to see what I could find when faced with my divorce and the need to get a separation agreement drawn up. Russell Alexander had excellent reviews and was well located to me in Whitby.My first meeting with Adam Borer went very well and was quite productive. He and his team were very sensitive to the matter and while I wasn't in a particularly emotional position, I could tell that they would act professionally and with compassion if I had been. Every visit to the office or communication I had with the team was met with warm and welcoming voices and faces.Adam reviewed the legal documentation I had and counseled me that we needed updated legal documents to protect both me and my partner during the pending divorce, a very wise and worthwhile choice. I will note that I had a legal document, a cohabitation agreement, from another law firm in durham and it was clear to me that the other office hadn't done a good job. Adam wholeheartedly agreed with me and expressed his frustration that I hadn't been given very good legal counsel by another firm and promised that the agreement we would draft would be sound.I can't express how much I would recommend Russell Alexander for family law. My divorce proceedings (specifically a separation agreement) were straightforward and simple and Adam is an excellent lawyer who very clearly values your time. My ex-partner and his lawyer dragged their feet through the process, while Adam was on top of every last detail, quick to respond and very quick to act. Adam was everything I wanted in a lawyer and more, he provided sound advice and listened to my concerns and input as the agreement was being drafted.Should I ever have any need for family law, or have friends and family that do, I will absolutely recommend Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Law to them. Divorce is difficult, but Adam and his team made the process very smooth and easy to manage.
