Tanya has extensive experience in all facets of family law and with her firm has helped many clients resolve difficult family matters through mediation and negotiations. Her approach to dealing with these family matters is unique, and involves a well-developed strategy of amicable resolution, when possible, instead of appearing in court.

She sympathizes with every client’s psychological turmoil of separation and divorce and approaches each matter with a caring and open mind.
