Andrew Feldstein, founder and managing partner with Feldstein Family Law Group in Markham, focuses exclusively on family law.

Mr. Feldstein graduated with a Doctor of Laws from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1992 and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1994.

As a certified collaborative family law lawyer, mediator, and Dispute Resolution Officer with the Newmarket Court, Mr. Feldstein handles family law issues using alternatives to traditional court methods, including the collaborative family law process.

He was appointed to the Dispute Resolution Officer Panel for Newmarket in 2010. The panel is comprised of lawyers who support the family law court process by aiding couples in attempts to resolve their issues before their case proceeds before a judge.

Mr. Feldstein volunteers as a mentor for the Osgoode Hall Law School Mentor Program and is the chair of the Articling Committee at Feldstein Family Law Group.

He is a member of the Ontario and Canadian Bar Associations, the York Collaborative Practice, the York Region Law Association, the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, and the Markham Board of Trade.

Mr. Feldstein is creator and host of the 'Ask Andrew' show, a one-hour, phone-in, question-and-answer program which streams live on YouTube and Facebook.
