Welcome to the website for Toolsie Law.  Founded by Alex Toolsie, a lawyer based in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, this practice is focused on family and divorce law.

The practical problems that need to be addressed at the time of separation are sometimes made more difficult by emotions and financial issues. Most people find legal proceedings to be confusing and intimidating. That’s why we believe that one of the most valuable things a client can be given is the peace of mind that comes from understanding the law and having a plan of action.

Clients need to be heard, their objectives understood, and compelling life moments call for a compassionate response.  We work with clients to understand their unique needs and develop appropriate, tailor-made solutions to their problems.  As the issues clients face are identified, an explanation of the law, an opinion on the rights and options must follow.   Together with our clients, the best possible next steps can then be taken.

Our experience, expertise and professional integrity will provide you with the care and service you need to overcome challenging times and successfully move on with your life.
