A Divorce or Separation Does Not Have to DESTROY YOU

I have been a Family Lawyer in Victoria, BC for the past 43 years and practise primarily Collaborative Family Law. This focus allows me to provide individuals and families unique legal solutions, resolving matters without being combative, while still achieving realistic and respectable outcomes. Together, we can restructure the family with emotional and financial confidence.

The Collaborative Process: Non-Adversarial, Solutions-Oriented

As of March 18, 2013, the new Family Law Act has specifically designated the Collaborative Process as an alternate Dispute Resolution Option and has created significant changes to all aspects of family law. The Collaborative Family Law process is NOT adversarial, AND IS cost-effective and solutions-oriented without using the courts.

The office of Robert J. Klassen serves its clients resolutely and with pleasure. Please contact us.
