Shuber joins Gelman & Associates
By AdvocateDaily.com Staff
Shuber, a senior associate, made the move earlier this month and tells AdvocateDaily.com she was drawn to the firm's people and their dedication to family law. Shuber also notes the firm's owner and founder Lisa Gelman is very supportive of her mediation practice.
"They're very interested in building up a mediation group, which is exciting," Shuber says.
Gelman says Shuber is an "amazing addition" to the firm.
"Jennifer is an excellent fit with our team and clients. The depth and breadth of her family law and mediation experience are an asset to the firm," Gelman notes.
Since her call to the bar in 1997, Shuber has been practising exclusively in family law, advising clients on all matters relating to marriage and marriage breakdown, and assists her clients with domestic contracts, property, support, and child-related issues, particularly in high-conflict, complex custody and access and high-net-worth matters.
A Certified Specialist in Family Law by the Law Society of Ontario, Shuber has experience at all levels of court in Ontario. Highly skilled in mediation and arbitration, she is recognized as an Accredited Family Mediator by the Ontario Association for Family Mediation and a Certified Specialist in Family Mediation by the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario. Shuber has also been appointed a Dispute Resolution Officer for the Superior Court of Justice in Toronto.
She graduated with a bachelor of arts from the University of Western Ontario in 1991, before earning her combined bachelor of laws and master of social work from the University of Toronto in 1995.
Leveraging her litigation and mediation skills, Shuber's clients benefit from her ability to both negotiate a resolution out of court and litigate successfully on their behalf, Gelman says. In her mediation practice, Shuber further adds value by bringing her social work experience and credentials alongside her knowledge of the law to help her clients creatively resolve their family law disputes, she adds.
