While I have never set foot in the office of Russell Alexander (Collaborative) Family Lawyers, I learn a great deal from them, first though the blogs that come into my email, and then through the Webinars. I find that they have humour, knowledge and a wide scope that they delve into, something that I appreciate. I thank you for providing this service for the rest of us, and hope you continue to do so, and continue to prosper.
Excellent webinars presented by Russell Alexander and his team. I've attended several, and always learn something. I've also suggested to several clients that they attend. Thanks for making these so widely available! Debbie Shawn MSW, RSW, Divorce Matters - Preparing for an Organized Divorce

I have come to depend very much on Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Lawyers' biweekly family law virtual events. I have been attending regularly for one year - and that is as long as I have been practicing family law. I find it engaging and informative every time, even in aspects of the subject I have reasonable familiarity with. I strongly recommend it to every lawyer new or so new to family law practice, and I have no plans to stop attending any time soon.
Ms. Harrison was clear in her instructions throughout the intake process to make it as simple as possible. The response time was surprisingly fast and any questions I had were answered clearly and concisely.

Pedro Pablo grew up in Miramar, La Habana. His love for the law runs in his maternal family. His grandmother Olga de Varona was a law clerk at the Supreme Court all her life, where she worked for her father Pedro’s great grandfather Francisco de Varona Duquestrada. Pedro’s great grandfather was not only vice-president of Cuba’s Supreme Court , he was also Vice President of the Asociación InterAmericana de Juristas , he represented Cuba as a judge in the international court of Justice ( The Hague). De Varona participated as Advisor in the trial against mercenarism held in Angola and also in the trial against Ieng Sary and Pol-Pot, in Kampuchea. All to say , Pedro’s passion for the law runs deep. He would do anything to honor the memory of his ancestors.

I had dinner at a taco place which had 5 stars on TripAdvisor, and I ended up waiting over an hour until I was served. I wonder what happened there - tacos are so easy to make! The point is you should do your research and due diligence for your specific case, because I think, unlike tacos, these matters might be a little too important in your life to rely on Google reviews. That said, will definitely consider these guys for all my future divorces... :)

I participated in the November 10th webinar presented by this firm on Caselines, the new system for electronically filing and referring to documents in hearings and trials in Ontario courts. As an older lawyer, learning about electronic innovations doesn't come naturally to me, but the webinar was a good introduction to this topic and gave me confidence that when I begin using Caselines I will have a basic understanding of how to use it. Thank you to Russ, Michelle and Kaitlyn, for the great job they did with the program presentation and for post-presentation follow up with me on a question I had. And a special thank you to the firm for providing this complementary webinar to the profession.
I've had the pleasure of knowing Lori Dubin personally and professionally for years. On a personal level she is one of the kindest, considerate and generous people I know.

The outcome of your case is directly tied to the lawyer you choose. I chose the wrong lawyer the first time around and the outcome was very one-sided. When I was faced with returning to court during the height of Covid I didn't know where to turn. I did a lot of research and asked friends that had been in the same situation. I discovered the Russell Alexander firm. Lawyer Brittany Whalen reached out and made me feel immediately at ease. She took me on a smarter path through the situation. She worked hard to make sure my interests were taken care of. My situation was complicated as most are but Brittany worked to get agreement from the other side. It's done now and I couldn't be happier. Thanks again Brittany
I was disgruntled when I first had my divorce papers handed to me. I would ask friends that have been through it.Thereafter, I was recommended by a close friend to seek out Ms. Whalen at Russell Alexander.I was so pleased with the steadfast results that she continues to do on my behalf.I'd recommend consulting with her and her firm if you are in a case of divorce and wish to have closure.Thank youJASON

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.
On several occasions I have had the privilege of working with Michelle Mulchan in the Collaborative setting. Michelle is very attentive to her clients needs and interests and explains family law in a way that is easy to understand. It is a pleasure to work with someone that is responsive, caring and flexible.
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 know Amanda Zenga on a personal level. She is amazing! She's the real deal! You're very lucky to have her!
I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Amanda Zenga. She was kind, professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. I can’t recommend her enough!

I haven't personally used this firm, but Kaitlyn is one of the most reliable people I know. She's always on top of things and even when faced with issues, she always acts professionally to resolve anything that arises.

I've had the opportunity to work with Amanda Zenga and her knowledge and professionalism is always impressive. She is polite and always willing to help and she made me feel confident in her abilities to assist me.
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 called and spoke with Amanda Zenga at RIA and she was always extremely helpful.I always felt she went above and beyond to assist my needs.

Her clients benefit from her extensive knowledge of family law and are supported by her compassionate heart. I highly recommend Ms. Mulchan as a Family Law lawyer.
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.
As a financial professional specializing in matrimonial matters, I have worked with Michelle on many cases. She is a pleasure to deal with, very organized and responsive, and always keeps her clients' interests paramount. She does a great job of balancing the requirements of her profession with the cost constraints that all clients are faced with. I would highly recommend her to potential clients.
Amanda Zenga was extremely helpful and informative. Her compassion for others and willingness to listen made this experience much easier

I had the pleasure of working with associate lawyer Susanna and court clerk Courtney. Both ladies were amazing to work with, they were prompt with responses and quick to get things done.

Her parents started as neighbour's and ended up friends. We spent a lot of time together, even after we moved to Lindsay, we would meet up at arenas, meet for BBQ’s, and always had fun. She has always been a smart, kind, and beautiful young lady. I know she must be an asset to your business.
I know elizabeth MacDonald on a personal level. She is always very professional, kind and willing to go above and beyond for everyone. Elizabeth is always willing to try new things and loves a challenge, you will be in good hands if you have the opportunity to chat with her.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to me and my case I appreciate it more then you know.Jerome Bosnjak
My friend was unable to write a review as she did not have a google account. She wanted me to write a review for, “Nafisa Nazarali”. She mentioned that, Nafisa is a very compassionate individual that has a lot of attention to detail and patience to listen to everything she had to say regarding her situation. She was very pleased with her service and knowledge. Nafisa definitely is an asset to your team!!!
Nafisa Nazarali was a beacon of hope at a time when I needed a lawyer the most. I am eternally grateful for her service, and I hereby recommend Nafisa without reservation. She was totally responsive, amazing to work, and extremely professional, all of which led to a quick successful outcome on a difficult matter. She worked tirelessly to ensure that my situation was handled with the utmost care. I will continue to retain Nafisa for all legal matters that may arise as I know I am in the best of hands.
I am very grateful for the help I received from the Nafisa Nazarali. Her services far exceeded my expectations. She is an incredible lawyer that displayed a high level of professionalism combined with empathy. Nafisa truly cares about her clients and is great to work with.

I would definitely do so again, and she is in fact one of the most competent professionals that I have ever worked with. I am truly impressed! 5 stars all the way!!!
Nafisa is very professional, communicates effectively and is approachable with any questions. I would highly recommend her and her services!

Michelle Mulchan was exceptional. Very professional and extremely hard working. Hard to find at the moment.
Michelle Mulchan is an exceptional lawyer. She is smart, quick to respond and provides me with the information I need for my file. I highly recommend her services.
Hiring Michelle Mulchan was an incredible decision! She was very experienced and whip-smart. Sure helped things turn out well for me!
Can’t speak highly enough of how respectful, hard working and thoughtful Stephanie is. An excellent professional who will always go the extra mile.
Rick Peticca was a pleasure to work with. Prompt and detailed responses to any questions and extremely knowledgeable with family law matters.
Very professional and just really good.To be honest I think I should of paid more.That's all I need to say
This firm was incredibly easy to deal with. Very organized and paid attention to the details throughout the entire process. Michelle Mulchan's tenacious nature was impressive to say the least. Will definitely use their services again if needed!
Christine at Russell Alexander Family Law is very attentive and hard working. Always going the extra distance for the client. I would not hesitate in recommending her.
Michelle Mulchan is one of the hardest working professionals in this industry. Professional throughout, responsive to client needs whilst having a personal touch really does separate her from her peers.
When I had my meeting with Susanna she was a great help and continuing to help me with all my questions and situations I am in. Very professional like no other explained every thing in every detail so that way I understood it all
Through the years of knowing Kaitlyn, she's always been passionate, dedicated, exceeds expectations and strives to do the right thing. Kaitlyn has always conducted herself professionally while being supportive and empathetic to those around her. I would recommend her to anyone that requires this type of help.
I would highly recommend Kaitlyn Swindells and this law firm to anyone looking for family lawyers. Kaitlyn is a hard working law clerk who is very knowledgeable and compassionate. She is always professional in what she does while being efficient and detail oriented.
Had a very good experience with Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Lawyers! Especially Kaitlyn Swindells. Her attention to detail was awesome and she made sure we were taken care of properly! Would definitely recommend to a friend or family member if they ever needed a family lawyer!
Kaitlyn Swindells is very professional and hard working. I have known Kaitlyn to be passionate about family law. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone seeking legal advice and if you are fortunate enough to have Kaitlyn as your law clerk, you will not be disappointed!!
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.
Sonia Camilli was a pleasure to work with, she has vast knowledge of the law and a deep understanding on how to treat clients. She is extremely professional and I highly recommend her work ethic.

I can't say enough of Pamela's qualities: dedicated, emphatic and mature beyond her years. Although English is Pamela's second language, her wide reading of literary works speaks to a fine intelligence; she is a person of depth and delight.
Everyone told me divirce was a hard process, but Pamela Favotto with Her knowledge and caring was able to calm me while filing formularies. Her Care meant more than words could express.

I've had the pleasure of working with Dani Campbell. She is diligent, dedicated, and very professional. Highly recommend.
Very useful guide and perspective on current matrimonial proceedings. Thank you for the insights and we hope the judiciary will consider all the benefits and advancement that can be achieved from adopting the new norm of virtual hearings.
The services of Susanna Crichlow as the lawyer caring for me during my divorce and of Courtney Derick who kept everything organized were excellent.Thank you both for making this difficult process as painless as possible.
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 had the pleasure of dealing with Erin on the intake team and found her to be patient, knowledgeable and super organized.
Dani Campbell goes above and beyond to support her clients. Dani is organized , professional and communicates affectively. Her contagious smile and willingness to help others does not go unrecognized.
Good experience, thanks.
Alexander Russells team just did a webinar on how criminal charges can affect your case...I wish Lori had been my attorney back when i needed a real criminal and family law attorneyMy advice would be to part take in webinars and get this firm to represent you... Money well spentThe law doesn't protect your rights like you might think....
I have known Carolyn for several years, she is a dedicated lawyer and shows pride in her work. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a family lawyer.

Ashley is a pleasure to speak with and always returns our calls quickly.
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)
Amazing office ! Amazing staff! Russel was great to work with! Very professional and knowledgeable. He helped me out when I was in a bind. I highly recommend this office.

Dani has always gone above and beyond for us as a client. Couldn’t recommend her more!
James Alexander was very knowledgeable, professional, and caring, which made what I’m going through much easier.
I know Christine to be a very hard worker and passionate about what she does. She is also very knowledgeable.

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.
Russell Alexander and his legal team were amazing to work with. Russell volunteered his services and took the time to meet with us and provided great legal advice and support. He helped us to make important decisions in proceeding with our case. Russell demonstrated his commitment to community service and his willingness to aid others. Thank you so much for your assistance on our case!

Mr Bill Rogers was very professional and explained all my options and answered all the questions that I had. He was very upfront and transparent. Defiantly would recommend !
Adam Borer was my lawyer during my separation and he was a instrumental in guiding me through what is inevitably a painful process.Adam demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the process and provided empathy and updates during the process.Although I hope to never go through this process again, don’t hesitate to meet with Adam and judge for your self his ability to help you through the process
Ms Michelle Mulchan and team are amazing. Michelle is professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you Michelle

I feel like I have a future to look forward to, thank you to everyone, your hard work is truly appreciated!
I recently retained Russel Alexander's team for a consultation and will definitely be happy working with these folks to look after my Collaborative separation and divorce.
I just wanted to share my appreciation to Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Law and the amazing date night at the Home Again Concert at the Lindsay Drive In Theatre. It was to my surprise that I had won a set of VIP tickets to the show from Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Law! It was such a fun evening with my partner to celebrate his birthday early.
We’re very informative and kind as I am going through a very hard time. Thanks for caring
I was very impressed by quick response and sympathetic ear.. Thank you
FINALLY a lawyer and law firm that fights for YOUR rights and not wanting to sing kumbaya to the other party! Both my wife and I knew within 10 minutes of our initial consultation with Susanna that we MUST retain her to represent my wife who is being challenged by her dead beat ex husband for child support.
The best decision I made after deciding to separate and then divorce my husband, was choosing Russell Alexander Family Law Lawyers. My lawyer, Ms. Dubin not only had the legal expertise but empathy for me and the stressful situation that I was in. Her personal contacts, immediate response to emails and telephone calls during and after office hours, greatly reduced my stressI now look forward to my future with anticipation. M. C.
I've known Sonia Camilli for years and I want to give her a 5 star review because I think she is so happy, patient, kind and always willing to help.
I met Pamela when I asked her for an informational interview as I plan on becoming a legal professional. Pamela was very helpful and insightful during my conversation with her. You can tell she’s passionate about law and has a great heart. We’ve kept in contact since, and she provides me with additional tips as I apply to law school this summer. I never would have imagined that I would walk out of an informational interview with a mentor. I really have nothing but the best to say about Pamela.
Daphne is an excellent employee and even better person! I'm looking forward to continuing our work together.
Daphne was a delight to work with and couldn't have asked for a better experience, thank you for everything!
If I had to choose one word to characterize Pamela, "tenacious" comes to mind. Specifically, Pamela is a people-person who is efficient, detail-oriented, and capable. She excels in dynamic settings that necessitate problem-solving abilities, as I experienced firsthand in her management of her Toronto co-owned business. Pamela's passion and enthusiasm for her profession are clear in the energy and empathy she delivers to clients, in my opinion. Finally, as a young adult, I put myself in Pamela's position when she was my age and consider the difficult decision, she took to come to Canada alone. Pamela's tenacity allowed her to not only achieve but also exceed her goals, which is something I admire about her.
Thank you so much, for helping me with my divorce. You gave me professional help, with a quick response!Great work and Thank you so much !

"We’re here to make the bad and the ugly a little less bad and ugly" is right on their website. But they could have gone further than that writing about Brittany Whalen. Brittany will also make your journey through all of this less stressful, and more understandable, because Brittany is not only a great lawyer, but also a great communicator. She listens when it's time to listen, and talks when it's time to talk. She has a rare combination of empathy and toughness. I witnessed her in a room with another "tough" lawyer. The other lawyer was trying to rattle Brittany with an angry and aggressive style but to absolutely no effect! During the barrage of that other lawyer Brittany kept a calm composure and just did what she does best; practice excellent law. In that room on that day I knew who the real boss was. Despite all the mayhem coming from the other side of the table on that day I felt at ease knowing that I was sitting next to Brittany.
I know Sarah Poeta personally . She has always been passionate about her job. She's always been a very hard worker with anything she does and always thriving to do new and better things within her industry
