  • I have a Bachelor of Social Work from McGill University and a Bachelor of Laws from Osgoode Hall Law School. I was called to the Bar in 2003 and i have been practicing family law exclusively for the past 16 years.

    I have advocated for my family law clients in the Ontario Court of Justice, the Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Court of Appeal. I have also completed my Level 1 Collaborative Family Law Training and I am a member of the Durham Collaborative Family Law Group.

    Despite my extensive litigation experience, my family law practice has a strong focus on the use of alternative dispute mechanisms, such as mediation and arbitration, to assist my clients in reaching negotiated settlements, which is often the quickest and most cost-effective way to resolve a family law dispute.

    I was a children's lawyer for the Office of the Children's Lawyer for several years and dedicated a portion of my family law practice to representing children in both custody and access disputes, as well as in child protection matters. At all times, the needs and best interests of my client's children are my priority Having represented hundreds of children in family law disputes, I have witnessed first-hand the negative impact that prolonged family law disputes have upon children and the family unit as a whole.

    At Scott Furlong Ford, we understand that the costs of legal representation during a family law dispute can be financially crippling, which is why we are happy to provide creative financial solutions for our clients, such as limited-scope retainer arrangements.

    Please contact me if you would like to discuss your family law matter further. I offer a free, confidential 30 minute consultation, as well as a discounted hourly rate for client referrals from Employee Assistance Programs.
