Alison Pengelley

Alison Pengelley brings a wealth of work, academic, volunteer and life experience to the practice of family law. Having herself experienced a separation and divorce, Alison is poignantly aware that a lawyer’s skillful use of the law can provide the necessary power and protection for her/his client. Alison is also well aware that the needs/interests of clients dealing with the separation process are multi-dimensional and complex thus requiring from the outset a careful analysis in order to help clients choose the right dispute resolution tool. Alison is a passionate advocate who is committed to helping her clients through the difficult process of resolving family disputes.


Alison is a member in good standing of the Law Society of Upper Canada, Canadian and Ontario Bar Associations, Women’s Law Association of Ontario, Simcoe County Family Law Association, and Collaborative Practice Simcoe County.


For most separating couples Collaborative Practice is the best process for the resolution of issues related to their separation as it is interest-based while still taking place in the shadow of our family laws, thus producing typically an effective separation agreement which is long-lasting.
