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

Margie & Renata are the most empathic, diligent and professional lawyers you’ll find.

The staff has been phenomenal (namely Nicole) from the get go. They respect my time and deal with my matter with great expediency. Great job team!!
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. Most impressive was that my initial inquiry was responded to in a matter of minutes (on a business day) and a follow up email sent to Ms. Harrison over the weekend was responded to first thing on Monday morning!
I had a wonderful experience thanks to their committed staff..thank you Renata!!
Sarah Poeta is extremely professional and helpful. She really listens and provides great support.

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.

When you find yourself in need of a lawyer, something serious is going on in your life so you're presumably under a lot of stress. That's exactly where I found myself and so the idea of finding a lawyer to help me was intimidating. But, shortly into my search, I was fortunate someone recommended Ms. Carolyn Warner to me.Ms. Carolyn Warner and Sarah Poeta were professional and thorough when dealing with my issue. Aside from clearly being very knowledgeable, they were also compassionate enough to take the time to answer all of my questions, send me additional resources, and explain the processes to me.
