Sylvia brings a wealth of personal and life experience to her family law practice. She has experienced first-hand the challenges of family breakdown and is committed to supporting clients through this challenging period in their lives. Sylvia came to family law after a long career in Human Resources management and is committed to helping clients obtain agreements that will allow them to move their life forward as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. She works closely with clients to understand their concerns and goals, and uses negotiation, mediation and collaborative practices to resolve disputes without going to court. She is open to providing legal services on a flat-fee basis instead of charging by the hour and supports clients who are dealing with matters on their own by providing unbundled (limited scope retainer) legal services.
