LOUISE M. MIMNAGH
"When my clients are overwhelmed by a separation, divorce or custody issue, I give them an honest assessment of their situation, help determine their priorities, and develop a plan for confidently moving forward"
I work closely with my clients to ensure that they understand their rights, appreciate their options, and make well-informed decisions. While some clients will need to commence a court process, many families are well suited to alternatives such as mediation, arbitration, and direct negotiations.
I am also in the process of becoming an accredited family law mediator with the Ontario Association for Family Mediation (OAFM) and the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario (FDRIO).
I value sharing my legal expertise and tackling intricate legal issues. I am proud to have published numerous academic papers, and I have also been a guest lecturer at law schools, family law conferences, and public education seminars. I am also the Co-President of the Middlesex Family Lawyers Association (MFLA).
My spare time is spent staying active, indulging in my love of cooking, following politics, and volunteering with Growing Chefs! Ontario to promote children’s food education.
Please contact me for advice regarding your family law matter, including separation, divorce, child and spousal support, property issues, and custody and access.
