Angela Svetlichny

Angela has been practicing family law for 15 years. She has 3 children and is always mindful of the impact of litigation on children and tailors her advice to clients to minimize the harm to the children. Angela is also mindful of the cost of litigation and how depleting family finances harms the parties and their children. Settling files is always a priority and mediation is always a preference for Angela unless circumstances make mediation unworkable.

Despite her enthusiasm for settling, Angela will rely on the independence, knowledge and intelligence of our judges to resolve disputes if it seems that the other party is not willing to settle or the facts are such that it is impossible, too complicated or too emotional for the parties to agree on the appropriate outcome. Angela is willing to provide “coaching services” or “limited retainer services” for litigants who find themselves appearing in court on their own behalf, including answering questions, providing advice, providing information about the caselaw, and reviewing or preparing documents or letters to or from the opposing party. You will find Angela very approachable and empathetic. Set up an initial consult today to ask Angela how she can be of assistance on your family law file.
