Family and Matrimonial Law and Litigation
Divorce, child custody, property division and support cases can pose difficult legal issues for those already struggling with emotional turmoil at the end of a relationship. These unique circumstances require the knowledge and skill of family law lawyers with deep experience in this area.
LK Law’s Family Law Group focuses on protecting your rights while achieving positive results. At Lindsay Kenney LLP, our Family Law Group in Vancouver is headed by partner Angela Thiele who has practiced family law for more than 25 years.
