Avagene Skervin


Avagene has been an Associate at Flak Professional Corporation (formerly, Edwin A. Flak) since her admission to the Ontario Bar in 2005. 

Avagene has practiced exclusively in family law since 2005. Her areas of practice include issues arising from cohabitation and marriage such as divorce, child and spousal support, custody, access, property and equalization payment issues. Avagene encourages and promotes settlement of issues with a view to an early resolution of cases.

Avagene is a member of the Ontario Bar Association, Law Society of Upper Canada, and the Peel Law Association.

Avagene graduated from the University of the West Indies in 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in French (Hons) and was awarded the Bachelor of Laws Degree (Hons) from the University of the West Indies in 1999. She obtained her Legal Education Certificate from Norman Manley Law School in 2001.

 Besides being an avid soccer player who enjoys all types of music, Avagene’s greatest success and joy to date is her son, Mason.

"Collaborative Practice is one of the best alternatives to litigation and what I consider the sterile and adversarial environment of the court system. It offers an interest-based approach to the resolution of issues. Its focus on clients, their perspectives and complete participation in the collaborative process, makes it a practical and realistic avenue towards achieving timely and satisfactory resolution of issues"
