In my experience, Joelle demonstrated many skills and attributes which make her a superior lawyer and mediator. She exhibited a thorough and confident knowledge of family law. Her exceptional ability to communicate, both verbally and through written documents, plus her business background, enriched her stance in representing me. As well I would like to acknowledge my sincere appreciation for the compassion Joelle displayed toward me during my separation. The fact that I could rely on her to keep me focused on the issues and their resolution proved invaluable. I would definitely recommend Joelle to others.

Although separation and divorce is never an easy thing to go through, the collaborative law process allowed for a difficult and emotionally charged situation to be handled with dignity and compromise. Joelle ensured that my needs were part of every conversation and helped me take the emotion out of the negotiation process and do what was best for our children. My concerns were addressed in a very humanistic way and we worked together to come up with a separation and custody agreement that worked for everyone. I feel that this process with Joelle was far less confrontational and much faster than the traditional divorce process would have been. It was a relief to be focused on a more positive outcome during the entire process.

Going through a divorce is a very emotional process but Joelle was able to keep me focussed on what was important. She was very professional and knowledgeable about all the different dynamics that are involved in the collaborative process. I had a lot of confidence in the recommendations that Joelle provided regarding items that were being negotiated and the decisions that I needed to take. I did interview other lawyers, some that came highly recommended, but am very happy and satisfied with the decision I made in hiring Joelle.

Joelle Adelson was the administrator of my mother’s Estate. Joelle dealt with my siblings and brother-in-law in a professional way. She was definitely put to the test and showed a great deal of patience and integrity while dealing with everyone. As well, she demonstrated excellent communication skills while keeping everyone informed and excellent negotiating skills. I would not hesitate to recommend her to other potential clients.
