Alex supports families of all kinds along the full spectrum of family law issues, advising clients who are dealing with everything from complex property holdings in multiple jurisdictions to parental alienation. Depending on the circumstances, he will help his clients resolve their family law issues through collaborative law, negotiation, mediation, or litigation – or a combination of these approaches when appropriate.
Alex is a lawyer with a genuine love for the practice of family law, which shows both in how he works and how he relates to his clients. He approaches everything he does with a unique blend of intelligence, integrity and compassion, taking his role as legal advocate to heart. Having seen firsthand how family law disputes can drain a client’s energy and resources, Alex believes one of his primary responsibilities is to minimize the stress and strain that can accompany separation and divorce. Because of his warm, approachable nature, and his thoughtful, client-centered perspective, he is well-suited to guide his clients through the sometimes difficult process of ending their relationship.
After graduating from law school and before starting work as a lawyer, Alex served as a law clerk at the British Columbia Supreme Court. His work there, assisting six judges craft their rulings, helped him develop superior legal research and writing skills and gave him invaluable insight into the court process.
He is currently a contributor to Lexis-Nexis's British Columbia Family Practice Advisor and the contributing editor to Carswell's Evidence in Family Law publication.
