I have seen Tannis several times for legal advice for the last 2 years. Until early this year I finally decided to go through with my legal separation.

Tannis was so understanding and accommodating. During this emotional and stressful process she made it easy for me. I highly recommend Tannis and the team.

As parenting orders will be enforceable by the Court, we will make sure the orders are written so the Court can understand them and they are enforceable.
