Blake Family Law advocates a non-adversarial approach to family law when possible. Unlike other areas of law, family law most often results in significant emotional and financial losses for both parties. 

 

 The court process, adversarial by nature, will often only serve to exacerbate enmity between separating spouses, and therefore is to be avoided if possible. We recognize, however, that recourse to litigation is sometimes unavoidable.  We have the experience and expertise to help navigate you through the complex court system, if need be.

Blake deserves the highest ratings. We found him by reading reviews on-line, and we have been delightedly impressed. Blake has been our lawyer for over two years now and he has worked extremely hard for us to bring a very difficult, complicated and challenging case to settlement. Although our case is in Ottawa, we live a great distance away, and Blake has gone many extra steps to keep us in the loop and our travel requirements minimal. Blake is a warm and caring individual, polite, kind, understanding, helpful, and supportive. He is very knowledgeable and professional. He is always accessible and has always kept us up to date with calls and emails. His experience and knowledge of the family court system has been invaluable. His assistants are also competent and polite. Blake is a fantastic lawyer. There aren’t words to fully describe what a great job he has done for us and how much we appreciate him. You can’t do better than to retain Blake’s services.

Lucky to have him to resolve the separation settlement with my ex. He will look out for your interests and is prompt to provide expert guidance on the questions you have. He is very knowledgeable and knows his stuff with the family court system. Highly recommend him.

Possible through a difficult situation and kept me informed through every step. Mr. Lyngseth handled my case with an approach geared toward a result that would be the most beneficial instead of just racking up extra fees and hurting the opposing side (as can happen with some Family Law practices). It was invaluable to be represented by someone accessible, supportive, and with vast knowledge of the legalities of my situation. His legal assistants are efficient, capable, and courteous.

Blake and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and professional. Blake is also very compassionate and kind. He walked me through the legal process patiently and provided me with good sound legal advice. I am so grateful to him and his staff for making an incredibly difficult time in my life a bit easier.
