- Sherman Law LLP



Kitchener-Waterloo family law lawyers

with empathy and passion for our work


A wholistic and integrative approach to resolving family law disputes.


Over 40 years of firm experience helping couples, parents, and their children

peacefully move forward from separation and divorce.



Separation & Divorce


Choosing to separate is undoubtedly a very difficult and painful decision for a family. Finding the right family law lawyer to represent you is one of the most important decisions you will need to make.


Our four decades of experience assisting clients with matrimonial matters has empowered our team to take a healing-centric approach to separation and divorce that focuses on finding solutions where maintaining a good relationship is still a possibility for your family and children.


Our highly skilled family law lawyers and accredited family mediators are peacemakers who guide our clients through the process of separation and divorce with compassion and empathy.


We take the cases of our clients to the court if truly necessary, but we always first explore the possibility of consensual dispute resolution, including family mediation and collaborative divorce.









Why should you trust your family to the team at Sherman Law LLP?





We are part of the comprehensive law movement that focuses on the human well-being of our clients and their families to reduce family conflict and work towards creative and sustainable solutions.


We advocate for a wholistic approach to the practise of law that finds healthier ways to resolve legal disputes than an adversarial approach to dispute resolution that can be damaging to families and children.

Our lawyers are child-focused and family-focused advocates who approach each case with individual and strategic care. As integrative legal practitioners, we seek values-based solutions for our clients that focus on strengthening relationships, reducing conflict, enhancing family communication, and resolving legal disputes.


We resolve family conflict and legal disputes using a team approach that partners with other skilled and caring professionals, including family, financial, and mental health specialists.



We welcome all modern families at our family law firm,

including single parents, blended families, same-sex couples,

and LGBTQ2S+.







In our many years of practising family law, we have come to rely upon

three facts that have stood the test of time...



Clipboard that says "fact #1"


Your breakup does not need to ruin your life, damage your children, or define your future.


Your separation can be healing, kind, loving, and respectful of yourself and all involved. You can decide to work together with your spouse to avoid the conflict and adversarial nature of the traditional court process through out-of-court dispute resolution, including mediation and collaborative divorce.



Clipboard that says "fact #2"


Lawyers can be peacemakers, problem solvers, and healers of conflict.


Transitioning to and promoting peacekeeping and healing within the legal professional through integrative law processes that focus on the needs of the whole family allows you to obtain the best advice and assistance from a variety of legal, financial, family and mental health professionals.



Clipboard that says "fact #3"


Regardless of the intensity of your situation, family law cases can be resolved out-of-court with healthier outcomes for your family.


You can resolve your dispute through interest-based and insightful conversations that seek values-based solutions that lead to lasting and durable parenting plans and separation agreements.
