About Us,

Since its' inception in 2014, the legal team in our boutique family law litigation firm has proudly brought many, even high conflict, cases to a resolution.

Our clients receive the benefit of a team of family litigation lawyers to provide them with individualized, accessible and responsive legal care. Though we are located in Hamilton, Ontario --just across the street from the Hamilton Unified Family Court, our office services the Hamilton area as well as the GTA, London, Sarnia, Chatham, and Windsor, Ontario.

Here, at Dwyer Law Office we believe in legal care. To our office this means that we will emphasize the approach that works for our clients, balancing the goal of achieving their best possible outcome with their financial means and, where possible, prioritizing the less-adversarial alternative dispute resolution mechanisms available to minimize conflict between partners (in the interest of their children, if any).

In situations where no out-of-court resolution is possible, we will continue to bring you the same quality of care by providing you with representation through each step of your litigation process. We are confident that, through our collaborative, committed and detail-oriented practice we can assist you in determining your best approach to help you achieve your goals.
