A message to clients & the profession

Extended Mediation & Arbitration Services

In these challenging times, the courts have called on counsel and parties to negotiate in good faith and to use alternative dispute resolution mechanisms; it is a matter of professional responsibility and personal integrity for our bar.

We invite counsel and self-represented parties to call on our roster of exceptional lawyers and a retired judge for mediation and arbitration of their family law disputes, whether on a permanent basis or until the courts resume regular operations.

MHC seeks to move families forward toward healing, to provide a measure of security and stability in the midst of uncertainty and to always advance children’s best interests.

Outstanding Achievement.

Working at the intersection of family and law is our passion. As Justice Abella of the Supreme Court of Canada once said: “Family law is and should be a leader in the legal system because it matters so much to so many.” We practise in the multi-faceted area of family law exclusively. We write about it. We speak about it. We bring our wealth of knowledge and our diverse experience to your case.

Train with the Best.

2L Summer & Articling Student Programs

MHC is a progressive, friendly, and team-oriented boutique family law firm. We are looking to hire a second-year summer student to commence employment in May 2022.

Although experience in family law is not required, ideal candidates should have a demonstrated interest in the field, strong legal research and writing skills and a desire to work with a small team on interesting and challenging cases. MHC is committed to employment equity and encourages applications for equity seeking groups, including individuals of indigenous descent, racialized individuals, individuals with disabilities, and LGBTQ2+ persons.

We’re Looking Forward to Meeting You.
