    Russel was called to the Bar in 2014. He began his career in Criminal Law and now practices exclusively in the area of Family Law. While he is comfortable in the courtroom, he is particularly adept at finding solutions for his clients outside of the court process. To that end he has recently expanded his practice to include Collaborative Family Law and Mediation because he recognizes that very often the best solutions to family conflict are those generated by the people directly involved.

    Shannon K.C. Prithipaul

    I was a criminal defence litigator for 15 years before I started my collaborative practice in family law. While definitely not trial-shy, I am firmly convinced that court is not the best place to solve family law disputes.
