  • Episode 214 - High Conflict Divorce

    Although almost 50% of marriages end in divorce, experts tell us that only 5% of separated couples ever end up litigating against each other in a courtroom. For some divorced couples, the acrimony and hostility are so bitter that their court cases only come to an end when their children reach adulthood. In the family law world, these are called "high conflict cases", and they are unquestionably the most toxic and bitter disputes in the entire justice system.

  • Top judges giving up silence to embrace the people‚Äôs court

    [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="220" caption="Globe and Mail, Kirk Makin Dec. 9, 2010"][/caption]

    'The movement reached a high water mark last year when Mr. Justice Harvey Brownstone of the Ontario Court of Justice wrote a best-selling book on family law. This fall he went a step further, launching an Internet talk show, familymatterstv.com, that gets about 50,000 hits a day.

    The novelty of a charismatic judge speaking in colourful terms about the strengths and weaknesses of the justice system made Judge Brownstone an overnight media star.

    “I never, ever anticipated that the media would latch on to the book the way they did,” Judge Brownstone said. “I was on about 200 radio and TV talk shows in the first six months.

    “When I became a judge, the culture was very clear,” he added. “You did not speak to the media. Ever. Judges were also very reluctant to speak out in a public way lest people think they were speaking for the whole judiciary.”'

  • The Heart of the Matter

    [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="531" caption="In Toronto article by Paul Gallant"][/caption]

    Excellent article all about our host, Justice Harvey Brownstone's life, his book, and his new show.
    "As if being an openly gay judge is not enough of a distinction, Brownstone, 54, is also remarkable in his outspokenness about the things that makes family law so exasperating for everyone involved. The familial language of love, hate, bitterness, abuse, redemption and revenge does not fit neatly into the system’s language of motions and stays."
