Family matters are incredibly personal; I make it my priority to be consistently available to my clients, to explain the law in plain English, and to navigate emotions, the courts, forms and legalese on their behalf so they can focus on life’s next chapter,” says Blaine. “I also understand that the cost of legal representation may cause a barrier to clients accessing a fair and equitable resolution, which is why I solve problems creatively and cost-effectively.”
