Divorce and family disputes are life-changing events, but the damage they leave behind can be minimized. This represents the core approach of Chantal’s work as she assists people through these challenges in a positive and productive manner.
Chantal understands the visceral nature of family conflicts and manages to simplify these complex issues into sensible solutions while building relationships or keeping them intact. She is experienced in multi-generational estates planning to protect and preserve family wealth, knowing this requires long-term vision and communication. Her pleasant demeanor guides clients through cost-effective resolutions outside the courtroom, including collaborative law, mediation and negotiation.
Conversely, she is acutely aware that sometimes litigation is the only course to resolving a dispute when these avenues reach an impasse. Chantal’s results-driven approach allows her to help people feel they are represented and supported in the fullest extent, while minimizing costs whenever possible.
