Kirstin Menzies
Lawyer

I have focused my practice on the out of court resolution of family law matters since 2013. I believe that these processes promote the healthiest outcomes possible for all those involved in separation and divorce; in particular, the children. I have extensive experience in negotiated and Collaborative settlements of family law cases involving parenting arrangements, division of family property and debts, and support issues. I am compassionate and effective, and welcome the opportunity to assist my clients in settling their family law matters as efficiently as possible, on their own terms, all while retaining control of the process; all hallmarks of Collaborative Law. If you are looking for a Collaborative divorce lawyer, I invite you to contact me to schedule a consultation. I can help you find the process that is best suited to resolving your unique separation.

GENERAL COMMENTS

I have practiced family law since my call to the bar of British Columbia in August 2007.  I graduated with distinction from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology prior to attending law school at the University of British Columbia.  After living and working in the Vancouver area for 10 years following law school, in 2017 I returned home to Vancouver Island and established Menzies Family Law in Victoria. 

I am experienced and skilled as an advocate, having appeared in both the Provincial and Supreme Courts of British Columbia in separation and divorce cases.  However, I observed that going to court, although sometimes necessary, often produced disappointing results for families.  The adversarial process can further fuel existing conflict.  So, I decided to pursue further training, and since 2013 have been qualified as a Family Law Mediator and Collaborative Law Professional.  I was admitted as a member of the BC Collaborative Roster Society in 2015, which requires committment to training and work annually, in Collaborative Practice. 

I live in the West Shore of Victoria, BC, and am able to serve clients throughout Greater Victoria, Vancouver Island, and Vancouver.  I’m a mother of two young children and my favourite things include their laughter, coffee, rare moments of solitude, and being outside near the water.
