Boulby Weinberg LLP is an elite boutique family law firm providing customized dispute resolution strategies for an array of family disputes. Helmed by globally recognized leaders in family law, our firm’s driving quality is creating effective strategies tailored to each of our clients’ unique needs. We distinguish ourselves from other family law firms by being selective about when to advise litigation, rather than defaulting to this option in every case. While our team of lawyers is made up of excellent litigators, we pride ourselves on taking a more purposeful and goal-oriented approach to each case.
Our lawyers are widely recognized as leading practitioners in family law, both nationally and internationally. We advise and represent clients on a wide variety of family matters, from simple, amicable separations to highly contentious divorces involving complicated family trusts, international property and parenting disputes. Our firm has extensive experience handling complex, multi-jurisdictional family law disputes and routinely receives referrals from colleagues on matters requiring in-depth knowledge and access to foreign resources.
The family law lawyers at Boulby Weinberg LLP offer a detailed understanding of the most complex family law issues on a local, national and international scale while retaining an approachable and relaxed atmosphere for our clients.
Our founding partners, Sarah Boulby and Oren Weinberg, were both selected for recognition by their peers for inclusion in the Best Lawyers in Canada® 2021 and in prior years, in the field of family law. Sarah was recognized by Best Lawyers in Canada® as the 2019 Toronto Family Lawyer of the Year and is ranked as one of Toronto’s Leading Family Law Practitioners by Lexpert. Oren is designated by the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario (FDRIO) as a Certified Specialist in Family Mediation (FDRP Med.) and offers a full mediation and arbitration service to assist couples with resolving their matters.
Both of our founding partners are also highly regarded internationally as renowned family law practitioners. They are Fellows of the prestigious International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL), a “worldwide association of practising lawyers who are recognized by their peers as the most experienced and skilled family law specialists in their respective countries.” IAFL membership is by invitation only and the admissions process is rigorous, designed to ensure a high level of expertise within the IAFL is maintained. In addition to being IAFL Fellows, Sarah is also a past President of the IAFL Canadian Chapter Executive Committee and Oren is a Governor and Treasurer of the IAFL. Together, Sarah and Oren have trained and continue to lead our team of dynamic and high-calibre family lawyers in finding inventive and effective solutions for our clients.
At Boulby Weinberg LLP we take a holistic approach to family disputes, carefully considering the issues at stake and our client’s specific goals before developing a strategy. Every family is unique, and as a result, so is every family dispute. No two are alike, and all require careful, individual consideration and a custom-tailored approach. While many family firms take a one-size-fits-all approach, recommending the same course of action in every case, at Boulby Weinberg LLP, we prefer a more strategic approach, developing a course of action specifically for the unique circumstances of each client.
We approach every family dispute by listening first, and then identifying the most appropriate strategy to achieve the best possible solution. We will never recommend litigation if it isn’t necessary. While in some cases litigation is the best approach, in many others it only adds fuel to the fire and places unnecessary strain on clients, both financially and emotionally. We are just as likely to recommend alternative dispute resolution methods such as arbitration or mediation as we are to advise heading to court. Under the guidance of skilled counsel, many families, even those seemingly unable to communicate effectively, can often find a mutually agreeable resolution through the use of a more nuanced and considered approach. At Boulby Weinberg LLP, our focus is always on solving our clients’ problems efficiently and effectively and we approach each situation with that in mind.
At Boulby Weinberg LLP, we focus on the needs of our clients first. We provide high-end, sophisticated legal representation without the stuffy formalities often associated with prominent law firms. Clients feel instantly at ease with us, as we prefer to cultivate a warm and friendly relationship from the start. Our approach has earned us the right to boast of our excellent client relationships, some of which we have maintained for over two decades now.
We also understand that clients are often strained for time and may be concerned with the financial resources required to solve their matter. For this reason, we were one of the first family law firms in Canada to partner with Settify, a technology company specializing in custom AI solutions to enable lawyers to engage meaningfully with new clients. We have developed an onboarding questionnaire that clients can complete on their own time, whenever it is most convenient for them. Not only does the service provide key information to our lawyers before the initial consultation, but it also provides potential clients with custom information on the family law matters important to them in just a matter of seconds. This service also enables us to save time at the first meeting, skipping over the provision of details and jumping straight to the heart of the matter at hand.
Boulby Weinberg LLP offers custom solutions to family disputes, from simple divorce to the most complex international disputes. We have earned the respect of our peers in Toronto and beyond for our measured, knowledgeable and strategic approach to a variety of issues. We can assist with any family concern, either by traditional litigation or alternative methods of dispute resolution.
