Offering a road map to resolution
- Family Law is all we do: divorce, custody & access (parenting time), guardianship, alimony, child support, property division, adoption, prenuptial agreements, and surrogacy.
- We are trained and experienced with the all three divorce options: confidential mediation avoids a public court battle and lays a foundation for future harmony, collaborative law uses a team of professionals for an out-of-court settlement, or, when a firmer approach is needed, litigation provides structure and finality.

"Wow. Devlin handled a complex interprovincial relocation case for me with very favorable outcomes. I am extremely impressed with Devlin's professionalism and skill. He is thorough, knowledgeable, collaborative, accessible and easy to work with. What is most evident is that Devlin truly has a passion for his work and helping people, as well as the experience and abilities to excel at it. Whatever the outcome, I knew I was being represented in the most effective way possible. Devlin made the whole process as stress-free as it can be, and I highly recommend him!"

Considering Representing Yourself?
Devlin Farmer's book Representing Yourself In Court, released with US and Canadian editions in February, 2016, has been reviewed as a "a resource-rich tool that offers [self represented litigants] insight into complex court processes and the tricks of the trade used by lawyers" and "essential." One reviewer said, "I wish I had this book when I was a self-represented litigant."
As the book discusses, we recommend strategically seeking legal advice from a lawyer when representing yourself.
