Sue Paterson

“Sue represents her clients with respect, humour and empathy. She really listens, and gives you honest, practical advice about achieving your separation goals. She will make sure you don’t sacrifice long term interests to ‘get it over with fast’, but knows your timing is important.

With her calm and sunny presence, Sue helps de-escalate difficult emotions and marvels at how often people can craft their own great solutions with the help of a supportive collaborative law process, which can include neutral family and financial professionals when helpful to the separating parties.

Sue has been practicing family law since 1997. She has successfully represented separating spouses at different levels of court, and kept many more out of court! She has represented children for the Office of the Children’s Lawyer since 2000, giving her a strong children’s perspective, and she has represented and trained government agencies. Sue is an accredited family mediator, with complementary training and experience with high conflict issues, domestic violence, addictions, working with difficult people and power dynamics. Sue is available to do Skype or Facetime consultations if requested.”
