Goldwater, Dubé

We have persuaded judges to award some of the highest child support awards ever granted, render precedent-setting decisions in matters as diverse as international kidnapping, animal welfare rights and the interpretation of religious marriage contracts, as well as help establish the legal recognition of common-law spouses and the right of same-sex couples to marry. The best advocacy shoots from the heart before it gets to the mind.

Mastering this link is the stuff great lawyers are made of. This is why we seek out and encourage lawyers who cultivate their passions, train mind to follow heart and put the whole to the service of those in need. Trust and empathy are the pillars of every solid attorney-client relationship. Regularly maintaining them ensures the best representation.

This is why we strive to build a full, frank and honest professional relationship with each client and represent them like we would a close friend. Passion and compassion are nothing without a firm intention to arrive at a desired outcome. At every stage, advocacy is an adversarial process, a clash of different interests. This is why we drill ourselves to be perpetually poised for war when it is necessary and yet primed for peace when it is possible.

  • Animal Law
  • Civil and Commercial
  • Criminal

Robinson Sheppard Shapiro , S.E.N.C.R.L

Whether you are married, about to be married, or a de facto spouse, it is important to fully understand your interests and those of your children before, during and at the end of the union. Our family law professionals understand that the concerns relating to life as a couple are multiple and complex. Often business people have assets that are difficult to value or realize. It also happens that spouses are partners in the same company.

Members of our Business Law group can help clarify and reorganize assets at stake. Working with our Estates, Wills & Trusts group ensures that your estate planning remains consistent with your intentions after your divorce. Mediation is recognized as an advantageous method of resolving disputes, usually cheaper and faster than recourse to traditional courts.

Experienced family law counselors can pave the way for a quick and harmonious resolution of marital disputes, whether or not the spouses choose to be accompanied by their lawyers. Legal action, whether plaintiff or defendant, is always demanding, because it requires time, financial resources, knowledge of legal issues and risk-taking. We know that, in a litigious situation, the concerns are not only related to business: they have an impact on the reputation, sometimes personal, the proper functioning of a company as well as on many human factors.
