Shannon Goffin

Shannon was born and raised in Sudbury, and earned an Honours Bachelor of Science from Laurentian University in 2004. She obtained her LL.B. from the University of Windsor in 2007, and after articling with the firm was called to the Ontario Bar in 2008. In June 2013, she achieved her Master of Laws (LL.M.) in General Law from York University (Osgoode Hall).

Shannon practices in the areas of family law and civil litigation. She is experienced as an advocate in family law matters including issues of custody, access, support, and property, and appears regularly at the Ontario Court of Justice and the Superior Court of Justice, as well as acting as per diem Duty Counsel for Legal Aid Ontario. She also advocates for clients in the context of negotiation and alternative dispute resolution, including the preparation of domestic contracts. She completed her Level 1 Collaborative Team Practice training in June 2015 and is looking forward to incorporating the collaborative approach to her family law practice.
I am looking forward to serving my clients through Collaborative Family Law. I believe in offering clients solutions that are cost-effective, achieve good results, and minimize the stress of separation. Collaborative practice works for all of those reasons and more importantly promotes the independence of the parties in reaching a mutually agreeable resolution and reduces the impact on their families and children.
