Family Law

Family Law

Family law encompasses a wide range of issues that couples, children and whole families can experience. While we would all prefer to keep family issues out of the courts, many times it is unavoidable and the only way to ensure a civil end to disputes over money, custody, divorce and other matters.  If you find yourself in need of a family lawyer, Toronto clients can find professional and experienced help from the legal experts at Devry Smith Frank LLP (DSF).
