Following the order of the Government of Ontario on March 23, 2020, our offices remain open to provide legal services in family law, including urgent child- related matters and temporary support adjustment.
We pride ourselves on shortening the length of time it takes to finalize the divorce. A quicker time frame for resolution means that both parties are free to move on, but most importantly it means less turmoil for the children.
We take the time to review your matter before you come in and pair you with the lawyer who would be the right fit. In our initial consultation we will have already reviewed your case and provide you with legal advise; not a sales pitch. Our goal is to gain your confidence by giving you the piece of mind to know where you stand and what outcomes we would seek to realize for you.
Our lawyers work together and share knowledge. We maintain confidentiality while openly sharing strategies and lessons. Our clients benefit from the experience of their peers and managing partners.
We endeavor, also as a matter of policy, to resolve your matter without lengthy and costly court proceedings, striving to keep your matter out of court if possible, or if it is already in court, resolving your matter wherever possible, avoiding protracted legal proceedings and the attendant cost. We have an extremely high success rate in bringing about resolutions, sometimes even where this seems impossible. The firm’s members work as a team, creating synergy and out-of-the-box thinking, seeking creative solutions to your situation. Should resolution be impossible, we stand with you before the courts with valour and unwavering resolve.
The family lawyers and law clerks of Stephen Durbin and Associates are dedicated to your cause. Rest assured that our hearts and souls are brought to bear on your individual case. Our firm maintains what has been referred to as a “culture of excellence.” Your matter will always be given full and proper attention. Prompt return of your messages is a matter of course for us, as are clear explanations of procedure and strategy.
