Barbara Cohen

In 1984 I graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa with a Bachelor of Arts degree with Distinction. Since my call to the Bar in 1991, I have practiced exclusively in the area of Family Law.

During the first many years of my practice I focused on litigation where I witnessed the huge financial and emotional cost of this process. As a result, I began my training in alternative dispute resolution practices including mediation and Collaborative Family Law. Since early 2000, I have offered these processes and have seen first hand the huge benefits they offer. Though litigation is sometimes a necessary element of my practice, I generally view it as a last resort.
