Elizabeth Mourao


A recipient of The Ontario People’s Choice Award which named her Lawyer of the Year recently, Elizabeth – who speaks and writes fluent Portuguese – has been interviewed on OMNI television newscasts and in ethnic print media discussing topical family law matters. She also received awards of excellence for her contributions as a columnist at the Portuguese Sun newspaper when she was writing regularly for the paper.

But probably of greater interest to her clients is Elizabeth’s ability to balance the importance of handling family law matters in a sensitive, understanding manner while remaining attuned to representing clients in court when doing so becomes appropriate and necessary.

Elizabeth has appeared at all levels of court in Ontario, including the Court of Appeal. She has also successfully represented clients in mediation and arbitration proceedings.

She is a member of the Family Law Executive for the province of Ontario and an editor of the sections official newsletter, Matrimonial Affairs. In August of 2013, Elizabeth was appointed to a two year term as Chair of the Ontario Bar Association's JUST., publication. Elizabeth has authored and co-authored a number of leading articles in the field of family law.
The collaborative process works towards a negotiated settlement and strives to facilitate respectful communication and avoid the acrimony which can result with court proceedings. It is a cost effective dispute resolution mechanism that results in a win-win outcome for families.
