WHY FAMILY HEALTH LAW™

-We believe there’s nothing more important than health and family...

My career started in a downtown firm advising health care organizations.  I noticed that patients’ families were often left in the dark. They didn’t know where to turn or what their rights were. They felt powerless and confused. Yet, I didn’t see any lawyers helping these struggling families. I realized there was a gap and that I was well-suited to fill that gap.

WHAT MAKES ME UNIQUE

Specialized

I’m the only lawyer in Canada focused on advising and representing family caregivers. And the only health lawyer practicing reproductive law.

Simple

I don’t use legalese to show you how smart I am. Instead, I believe that clients should understand the advice they are paying for and the documents they are signing.

Practical

Most clients are looking for answers, not academic analyses. I focus on results, not memos.

Accessible

I provide a unique service and want to help as many people as possible.  We leverage technology to make it easy to work with us.

Experienced

I worked in and for the health sector before starting my firm, and I leverage that knowledge for you.

“I can’t express what I am feeling right now…just wish to say ‘thank you from bottom of our hearts’. You came through as an angel to our family. Without your help organizing and presenting the info, I am not sure where we would have ended.”

I expect in the near future to contact you again with related matters, particularly regarding capacity and power of attorney.”

“Lisa helped demystify the process of completing a gestational carrier agreement.  I felt at a loss when my husband and I contacted her, and she really took the time to explain all the steps and answer all our questions.  We live in a small town where we don’t have access to this type of lawyer, and Lisa was able to do all this long distance for us which we truly appreciate.”
