Sherman Law LLP

Family Law


When your relationship ends, you may find yourself with many questions about your separation and uncertain how to move forward. Choosing a Kitchener family law lawyer to represent you may be one of the most important decisions you will ever make. When retaining a lawyer, you should expect to receive reliable, knowledgeable, and educated recommendations regarding how to proceed with your case, with the goal of reaching the most favourable outcome. Sherman Law LLP is comprised of a team of child-focused and family-focused advocates, who approach each case with individual and strategic care. We believe that being professional, transparent and honest with our clients is the key to ensuring that we favourably resolve each family law matter.

We are in this together, your family and ours.®TM 

Whether you have recently separated, or you are involved in a turbulent dispute over child custody and access or complex property division, our experienced Kitchener family law lawyers can be the effective legal support system that you require. At your time of need, you can turn to our dedicated family law lawyers for timely and effective legal advice and representation. Our ultimate goal is obtaining the best result for you, whether that is a fair negotiated settlement without going to court, or as litigators who will aggressively pursue your case before the court.  

Your separation does not have to be costly and emotionally draining.

We are going to let you in on an industry secret. Many family law lawyers are trained and skilled at creating further conflict in adversarial actions between spouses and couples, which are not only costly financially and emotionally to you, but can also be damaging to your children. There are many reasons for this approach, but usually it boils down to making money for the firm as a first priority with the clients’ best interests coming second. At our Kitchener law firm, our approach is different: we put clients first and we promote settlement – in and out of the court. It is most important to our firm that we assist you in resolving your dispute favourably and at the earliest opportunity. Furthermore, we have the knowledge and experience to often resolve your conflict without the need for a costly trial.

You can design your separation based on mutual respect and fairness.

We know that you can design your separation based on mutual respect and fairness; it is all in the approach and the plan you create. That is why at our law firm, we help you create the right plan at the earliest opportunity to settle your disputes. At Sherman Law LLP, we are committed to finding the best solutions for you and your family. The difference between ineffective family law lawyers and the family law lawyers at our firm is our ability to use a variety of creative legal strategies to resolve conflict. That is why we make use of negotiation and out of court settlement, in addition to arbitration, collaborative family law, mediation, and the traditional court process. Family law lawyers must be adaptable to process and strategy. If we find that our recommendations are not working, we will adapt our approach or bring in a third party or expert for assistance in continuing to move you through the process towards resolution.

Family law for the modern family.

We practise family law for every kind of modern family including blended families and same-sex couples. Everyone is welcome at our firm. We provide a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment for you to share your concerns and intimate parts of your life. We represent clients at trial, on appeal, and in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes, such as negotiations, mediations, arbitrations and collaborative family law. Because no two families are the same, we apply an individualized and creative approach to our clients’ separation and divorce.

Initial consultations should be informative.

We offer a no obligation one-hour comprehensive initial family law consultation for you to meet in person with an experienced family law lawyer from our firm, so that you can discuss your concerns, objectives, uncertainties and emotions. During your consultation, we will provide you with a clear understanding of your rights and obligations, so that you can move forward from your separation with confidence that you are making the best possible decisions for you and your family. Together, we will develop a strategy and decide the correct approach to move forward with your case. At the end of your consultation, you will know where you stand and feel confident that you have all of the information you require to make an informed decision that we are the right law firm for you. Most importantly, you will have the confidence that our team has the experience and the skill to achieve favourable results on your behalf.
