The Collaborative Advtange

Rose Pellar

Clients benefit from Rose Pellar's ability to empathize with them and to assist them to find practical resolutions as a result of having been divorced herself, coupled with her extensive years of practice in Family Law. 

Rose was married at a very young age and became a mother of two in her early twenties.  While being a working mother, she put herself through University and earned a Bachelor of Administrative Studies degree from York Univeristy in 1983.  After a failed marriage, and many disappointments, she realized that she wanted to help individuals through the process and decided to pursue a law degree.

In 1997 she was admitted to the Law Society of Upper Canada and immediately set up her own practice -  Rose Maslen, Barrister & Solicitor - at Yonge and Lawrence in Toronto.  Within months of having a general practice, she realized that her desire was to focus on Family Law.  She moved to Barrie in 2001 to begin a new life and joined the firm of Oatley, Purser in their Family Law practice area.  Later that year, she joined the Family Law firm of McGee & Fryer in Unionville until 2005 when Galbraith Family Law in Barrie wooed her to join their Family Law practice.

In 2006 after she re-married and moved to Wasaga Beach, Rose decided to open her own practice once more.  Rose focuses on practical resolutions for her clients and recommends the Collaborative Process as the preferred way.

At Pellar Family Law Professional Corporation, you and your family are important to us.

Divorce and separation is a very challenging process, made worse by inflammatory statements made in court proceedings.  The court process not only takes its toll financially, it generally raises the level of hostility and prevents proper communication between parents whose common priority ought to be the welfare of their children.  The court process does not guarantee a proper resolution and many litigants express their dissatisfaction at the court process

On the other hand, the collaborative process gives the parties responsibility for the outcome and when they work towards a resolution together, they are more likely to follow the agreed upon terms.  Despite the break-up, they are able to maintain respectful dialogue which will ultimately benefit the children of the relationship, and the parties are able to maintain their dignity.
