The Collaborative Advtange

James Studer

James grew up in British Columbia and obtained Bachelor of Arts with a major in Economics and adouble minor in Political Science and Philosophy. He moved to Ontario to studylaw at Queen’s University and has resided in Ontario ever since.

After law school, James articled at a boutique litigation firm in Waterloo before moving to Toronto to practice family law focusing primarily on family law cases that required litigation. James’ also represented various clients in civil, criminal, and immigration matters that arose from the breakdown of their marriage or common-law relationship.

James’ litigation experience allows him to effectively advocate for his clients while understanding the costs, both financially and emotionally, that clients will incur during litigation. James will only recommend litigation where it is necessary to protect his client’s interests and will help clients explore alternatives to litigation where it is appropriate.

Since joining Galbraith Family Law, James has included collaborative family law in his practice and recommends this process for people that want to control their futures and work together to build solutions that make sense.

In his spare time, James enjoys spending time with his friends and family while keeping busy playing soccer and other sporting activities like squash, tennis, golf and dodgeball.

With divorce rates hovering around 50%, collaborative practice is the modern answer to divorce. A divorce is a difficult and trying process for everyone involved but there is a future after the dust has settled. The collaborative process allows people to shape and control their own future instead of letting their lives be dictated by the adversarial system that is inherent in our courts.
