I had been searching for a Family Law Firm that would be even willing to answer a few questions regarding my child support payments that I have been paying for 25 years. I was fortunate enough to be listening to Q107 one morning on my way to work and could not believe that a Family Law Firm was actually advertising on a FM radio station. I took a chance contacted Russell Alexander through the web page and immediately was in contact with a chat representative who put me in touch with a customer service rep (Drisshti), very thorough. She then had Margie an extremely knowledgeable associate whom I look forward to working with in the future.Brad

Her attention to detail did not go unappreciated. Her behaviour in the courtroom was everything I could have hoped for. I am grateful to have this entire team on MY side for the duration of my case.

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 journey began being self-represented in the Family Branch. As my issues became more complex and with two weeks to obtain Counsel during Judges Trials (busy season), the Firm was able to set me up for consultation and help me retain an Associate Lawyer. They were there to represent me at a crucial stage of a mobility matter when I needed support. An associate Lawyer and the Collective Firm worked in a timely manner to meet my needs and demonstrated extensive knowledge of Case Law in their preparation of my delicate and emotional matter.When I had the opportunity and pleasure to meet Russell given the short deadline, he recalled his review of my material personally and demonstrated a true commitment to his Collective Firm. Mr. Alexander heirs on the side of confidence while striving to achieve excellence richly tied to the community. If you seek quality and Representation by a name backed by a team of passionate individuals, place your trust in Russell.With Sincere Gratitude, M.H.
