Joe Hilton

Joe is a partner with the national accounting firm BDO Canada LLP. Joe provides valuation services across much of Central Ontario including Simcoe County. Joe is both a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and a Chartered Business Valuator (CBV).

Joe has worked with family law lawyers and separating spouses since 1999. Joe specializes in business valuations and income determinations for spousal and child support including those with a forensic component. Joe can also assist with the preparation of net family property statements, quantifying tax liabilities, and designing tax efficient settlement agreements.

Joe completed his Collaborative Practice training in 2013 and has experience with collaborative files. Joe believes strongly in helping separating couples settle their financial issues cost effectively through the more respectful collaborative process, instead of the more costly, risky and lengthy litigation process.

Joe provides free initial consultations and is able to meet with you at one of our Simcoe County offices, or a location of your choice.

Having been involved with family law matters for many years in the traditional court system, I have longed to be involved in a more sensible, settlement driven approach.  Collaborative Practice achieves this goal.  With lawyers focused on settlement, the use of neutral family coaches and financial specialists, and the focus on core issues, Collaborative Practice is definitely the better way to achieve the best outcome for both separating couples and their children, while preserving family wealth.
