“I wanted to send you a sincere thank you for all your guidance and support during the biggest transition of my life.

Since becoming a lawyer in 1972 Alf has been involved in a multitude of family law cases dealing with every issue imaginable. Although he has had a very successful career as a litigator, he came to the realization that most cases can be resolved without the formality, expense and delay of the court system. He now spends his professional time helping clients and their lawyers settle cases, usually, in a one day mediation session. In addition to its efficiency, the mediation process is more conducive to spouses being able to maintain an amicable relationship after separation and divorce, which is vitally important in cases involving children.

When the lawyers are unable to reach an agreement, Alf is often retained to be the arbitrator. In these instances he is called upon to be a “private judge” and make a binding final decision after an arbitration hearing. Alf offers his mediation and arbitration services in all cases when family members are in conflict, including common law couples, shareholders in a family business, estate matters or family trust issues.
