Karman Lock

Karman was called to the Bar of Ontario after having received her Honours B.Sc. in Neuroscience and Law Degree from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She articled with a prominent family law firm in York Region and has been practising family law and litigation since her call to the bar. 

Karman’s studies began in neuroscience where she researched extensively in behavioural neuroscience and was been published in an international research journal in the brain sciences. During law school, Karman received a student clerkship with the Hon. Chief Justice Kennedy of the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia. She also volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada and chaired the Public Relations committee for Habitat for Humanity Halifax-Dartmouth.

Karman is growing her practice in family law, wills and estates, and estate litigation.  She works closely with family law clients dealing with and resolving the legal issues that arise as the result of preparing for marriage, separation, divorce, or child custody and access.  As a trained Collaborative Family Lawyer she can also assist clients in resolving issues collaboratively by way of negotiation and without going to court.  She also assists her clients in estate planning through the preparation of their Wills and Powers of Attorney, estate administration when a loved one has passed away, and as counsel in estate litigation matters.

Aside from the law, Karman enjoys baking, going on long runs, and playing tennis.  
Even after separation or divorce, family relationships still continue.  The Collaborative Process supports the clients during this time by resolving their concerns and issues in a respectful and compassionate manner.  When the clients are in control of the process, they set the stage for positive communication now and in the future.
