Deciding to get a divorce is one of the hardest decisions a couple could make. And it can also be complicated and stressful at times. From child support to properties, there are a lot of things to consider before you separate.
That’s when a Divorce Lawyer comes in. Hiring a divorce lawyer can save you a lot of time and stress. Lorne N. MacLean, QC and Angela Daniels are Three Best Rated® award-winning lawyers. With over decades of experience, they both have helped a lot of couples get a problem-free divorce.
Lorne N. MacLean, QC:
Lorne N. MacLean, QC, has over four decades of experience in practising high net worth, international and complex family law and divorce cases. He was named Queen’s Counsel, a title reserved for only 6% of lawyers based on merit and contribution to the legal profession.
Lorne MacLean views being a family lawyer as an honour and wants people to understand that lawyers are one of the “helping professions” and that family law touches more Canadians than any other area of law. “It’s important that family lawyers and judges get things right so Canadian families and particularly children can move forward successfully after a relationship breakdown,” he says.
With over seven offices across BC and in Calgary, his law firm MacLean Law is one of Western Canada’s largest and most diverse family law firms. They have one of the largest Mandarin and Cantonese fluent family law teams in Canada. And the attorneys are committed to helping their clients resolve challenging family law and estate litigation issues successfully. Due to the shared passion for family law, Lorne’’s sons Spencer and Fraser MacLean, both joined his stellar team of top associates.
Family lawyers are focused on resolving matters efficiently both in terms of financial cost and emotional cost. The prime directive at MacLean Law is to obtain a fair settlement as promptly as possible. “95% of our family law cases are successively resolved without a court trial. Our track record of huge wins for our clients helps us settle more cases because of our reputation,” he explains.
He has a record-setting win for his client in a high net worth property and spousal and child support case where he obtained $116,000 per month in a combined award and 22 million of family property for his client.
Lorne MacLean and his team are thrilled to receive the Three Best Rated® award, “I am truly honoured to have been selected as one of the Three Best Divorce Lawyers in each of Vancouver, Richmond and Surrey. These prestigious awards spur all of us to maintain our passion for helping clients navigate through their family separation so that they can move forward as winners free from unhappiness and dissatisfaction,” he says.
With over twelve years of experience, Angela Daniels is one of the leading Divorce Lawyers in Ottawa. “I wanted to be a lawyer ever since I was a little girl, so being able to actually work in this field is priceless. It is a dream come true,” she says.
Angela got her University degree from Carleton University and her law degree from the University of Ottawa. She started her law practice part-time in 2008 and transitioned to full time in 2010. “I still vividly remember those early days, the passion and excitement I felt when I first embarked on this journey,” she said, remembering about her early days as an attorney.
Angela founded The Daniels Law Firm in 2010, and now they are awarded as one of the top-rated Divorce lawyers in Ottawa by Three Best Rated®. “I feel very honoured and very grateful to be listed in Three Best Rated. My team and I deeply appreciate it. Thank you very much for this award and recognition,” she says, expressing her gratitude.
She is proud of the person she has become from working in this field and the experience and wisdom she gained in the past twelve years. “Being able to use the law in order to give people the freedom they never had is something I treasure,” she says, “To see the joy in their faces and hear their gratitude is humbling. I understand the power we lawyers have over people’s lives, and I never take that lightly. Knowing that I can make a positive difference in a person’s life is what motivates me,” she explains.
Angela strives to give each client more than what they came for. “I’ve settled many cases out of court because I use my sense of justice during the negotiation process. The only time I would insist on litigation, is when it is very clear to me, that the other side is not willing to budge and meet my client near, or in the middle,” she says.
She is currently completing her mediation certificate, and she is excited to offer mediation services to potential clients who are looking to resolve their family disputes outside the courtroom. “Mediation lets the parties be in the driver’s seat and lets them design a solution that works best for them. It is a very creative process,” she explains, “I believe my insight in human psychology and strong family law background will enable me to mediate matters very effectively.”
Angela also clarifies that she has no plans of switching from litigation to mediation and will still continue to provide litigation services even after getting a mediation certificate. After all, becoming a lawyer was her dream.
