Biography

“No matter what the issues, my goal in any family law matter is to minimize conflict and move towards resolution in a timely and cost-effective manner. My experience as a researcher in the areas of law, family-focused public health services, and the prevention of intimate partner violence aid me in my family law practice.”

Kayla has significant experience in negotiating and preparing domestic contracts, as well as representing clients in court. Prior to beginning her legal career, Kayla worked at Western and McMaster Universities as a Researcher in the areas of law, family-focused public health services, and the prevention of intimate partner violence. Kayla’s clients value the positivity, compassion, and thoroughness with which she approaches their family law matters.
