The Collaborative Advtange

Joseph Hamon

Together with his Collaborative Family Law certification, Joseph P. Hamon is also a certified comprehensive mediator (Family Mediation Canada) trained to deal with both personal family dynamics and legal/financial issues in family breakdown.

He has a heart for the whole family. His professional moto is: “If separation occurs .... fair resolution”. A senior experienced professional who can help cut to the heart of the matter. Yet one who is deferential and sensitive to the wishes of the separating couple.

Joseph, after receiving his law degree (LL.B.) from the University of Ottawa in 1984, received his bachelor’s degree (B.A.) in 1988 from the University of St. Michael’s College (University of Toronto) ultimately through pursuing theological and philosophical studies at the University of St. Paul in Ottawa. In 1991, he married Kristan Hamon, and opened his own law practice under the name of “Hamon Law Office”. He practices in both Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley through his Combermere office. 

Joseph is a board member at the St. Francis Memorial Hospital in Barry’s Bay. He has been a registered lobbyist to Parliament on various issues and has been an advisor to several organizations including Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Academy, Precious Blood and Life, Magnificat Ministries, Christian Legal Intervention Academy (Founding Member), Christian Legal Fellowship (Ottawa), Thomas More Lawyers’s Guild (Ottawa-Director), Home School Legal Defence Association (Canada), Action Life (Ottawa) and Campaign Life. 

With Kristan, he is father to nine children. He enjoys sports particularly golf.

Separation and divorce are costly, both emotionally and financially.  Years of financial entwinement are difficult to unravel.  Collaborative law is a supportive process that brings all necessary parties to the table and allows for a streamlined and fair solution to a difficult situation.
