I have practiced family law since 2007. After living and working in the Vancouver area for 10 years following law school, in 2017 I returned home to Vancouver Island and established Menzies Family Law in Victoria.
I practice primarily as a Collaborative Law Professional and a certified Family Law Mediator, and exclusively in out of court processes. I believe these promote the healthiest outcomes possible for all those involved; in particular, the children. I have extensive experience in negotiated settlements of family law cases involving parenting arrangements, division of family assets and debts, and support issues. I am compassionate and effective, and assist my clients in finding solutions to their separation and divorce issues, as efficiently as possible and on their own terms. I also assist my clients with estate and personal planning, including the preparation of Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Representation Agreements.
I was admitted as a member of the BC Collaborative Roster Society in 2015, which requires both training and experience, and a commitment to continuing education and work annually, in Collaborative Practice.
If you are looking for a mediator or divorce lawyer, I invite you to contact me to schedule a consultation. I can help you find the process that is best suited to resolving your unique separation.
I live in the West Shore of Victoria, BC, and am able to serve clients throughout Greater Victoria, Vancouver Island, and Vancouver. I’m a mother of two young children and my favourite things include their laughter, coffee, rare moments of solitude, and being outside near the water.
