Welcome to Laura E. Oliver, Barrister Professional Corporation

Family Law

Welcome. We hope you will find our site as unique as our approach to family law. We believe that there is more to a separating client than the legal issues that they face. Family Law is multifaceted and requires a catered approach and catered skills unique to every situation.

On this site, we will tell you who we are, what we do and the various options available to you to resolve your issues in an effective and efficient manner.

Through our experience over the past 20 years we have learned that clients’ biggest fears include financial instability, exorbitant legal costs and the feeling of not being heard.

That is why we are changing the way we approach family law. While litigation is sometimes necessary, it is not the only option. We pride ourselves on being advocates not merely litigators. Advocates recognize that the approach to be taken needs to be tailored to the individual client and his or her needs.

One of the key components to our approach is assisting in breaking the cycle of ineffective communication. Both Andrea and I are Certified Divorce Specialists and have undertaken intensive training in communication methods that are essential to the divorcing client moving forward. These methods become even more important when you are dealing with either mental health issues, personality disorders or addiction issues. By far, when these issues are layered over the divorce process, resolution becomes so much more difficult. We will assist you in transforming the way you engage with your former partner so that you can have peace and stability moving forward.

Who We Are - Our Core Values

Our desire over the last few years has been to try and help people work through this exceedingly difficult phase of their lives in a manner that is different; that is more holistic. We have been where you are, so we bring a deep, personal understanding to some of the situations you are facing. We know, what seems like an impossible path can be navigated successfully.

Our Core Values

We strive to hold a safe, open space for you to share your story, while upholding our core values, as detailed below.

We Lead By Example

We act in a way that exemplifies what we expect of each other and clients, including kindness and respect in our communication with one another. We are not afraid to share our own journey to help others; we hold space for each other and for our clients to express themselves.

We Are Transparent In Our Communication With Each Other And With Our Clients

We share information, insight and advice frequently and constructively; we manage tough situations with resilience, grace and confidence.

We Dare To Be Different

We question old and outdated models of practice and ways of thinking and communicating; we encourage creativity and education as a means of creating new avenues for change and personal growth in our own lives as well as the lives of those we serve.

We Are Passionate And Purposeful

We strongly believe we were put here for a reason, and that our unique gifts and talents were given to us to allow us to help people struggling with the emotional turmoil of separation and divorce. We believe there is a better, healthier way to do divorce and we are passionate about sharing that information with the world.

We Embrace Change

We believe it is so important to push yourself beyond your “comfort zone” every day to be just a little bit better than you were yesterday. We try new things, travel, and keep active physically, because we know physical and mental health are completely intertwined. We keep up with changing trends and we are continuously evolving and learning new skills to implement into our practice.

We practice these core values daily, not just in our professional roles, but in our personal lives as well.
