Leamy Family Law
Patrick earned his B.A. in Political Science from the University of Calgary and then his Law degree (LL.B.) from Queen's University at Kingston in 2000. He has practiced since 2001.
Patrick’s experience enables him to efficiently address complex matters for his clients involving court, negotiation, matrimonial contracts and strategic planning. A large part of his role involves educating clients about the relevant law and about the multitude of resolution options available to them, so that clients are fully informed and fully engaged in the decision-making process.
Mediation of family disputes is an option for those who value crafting their own resolutions amicably, fairly and openly. Mediation is an alternative process to Court which focuses participants on problem solving and preserving positive parental and co-parenting relationships. Patrick acts as an impartial mediator for both participants to assist with finding durable resolutions tailored to the parties' needs, values and goals.
