Russell was good lawyer to work with for our closing. Responds to email within a couple of hours. Offers additional legal counsel and advice when things are not typical. His fees are very affordable and not outlandish. I highly recommend him as a lawyer.

Golan and Christine,Golan was phenomenal to work with. As this was my first experience with the world of law, he was very understanding and was willing to take the time to make sure I felt confident in my comprehension of the everything along the way. I always felt Golan deeply cared about my well-being and quality of life; many times his advice ventured beyond the legal realm and into areas of my mental, physical, and emotional health. At a time where my divorce wasn’t the only major life circumstance on the table, I knew without a doubt that I could trust Golan to make sure this area of life was going to be taken care of. Golan could give just enough space for my emotions while being able to extract valuable information around ways to strategize; he even made mention to some of my own advice around dealing with my spouse being pertinent to the outcome landing in our favour. I felt included in the the process and in control of as much as I could be. His professionalism in court was impeccable (in fact, so professional that my former spouse fired his own lawyer and leveled up after witnessing Golan’s standards and behaviour in court.), and during every appearance he was always able to gain the court’s favour. He was always available to connect, and his commitment to me and consistent pressure towards the other side, resulted in a swift and satisfy outcome. There’s no question in my mind that Golan puts everything he has into caring for all aspects of his client’s experience, and I’m grateful for having had him represent and support me through what was the most challenging time in my life.Christine offers outstanding support as a law clerk. She’s always easy to connect with via phone or email, and as she’s often doing the majority of communication, it’s common to speak with her in less-than-optimal moments in the day. Christine was always considerate of my time, but also my overall life circumstances. She was sensitive and present every time I connected with her, even when she was calling for a simple question, I could always tell she was focused on caring for me in whatever way that looked like. Whether it was delivering news that’s challenging to hear, or confirming precise information, I always felt like a priority and that she was fully dedicated to all of my best interests. She heard all of the stories of my marriage and its fallout, and has an immense capacity for holding space and listening while also maintaining her professionalism and focus on her job. Even though she was asking personal questions in order to build a case, she’s so good at what she does that there were times I felt better just talking to her. Part of her job is to take your whole relationship and put it into point form notes, and not only does she do that accuracy and empathy, I was left with the bonus of feeling heard and validated. Christine is just all around a wonderful person, I’m so happy to have had her support throughout that time.

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.
16:45 01 Nov 21

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.
