Shirley Eve Levitan, Family and Fertility Law, Law and Mediation Services

My practice focusses exclusively on family law and fertility law. With over 25 years in practice, I can offer you the experience and knowledge you deserve to help you achieve your goals. Whether you are embarking on restructuring your family as a result of separation and divorce, or building a family through reproductive technology, I understand the challenges you are facing, and will work with you through these challenges, with a focus on your specific needs and priorities.


Over my many years of practice, I have litigated, negotiated and mediated all manner of family law issues.  My practice focus is on out of court settlement, including negotiation, mediation, and collaborative practice, to successfully represent you with your cohabitation, marriage, divorce and separation needs. I listen to your needs, and work with you to help you achieve your goals. My practice emphasis, and personal philosophy, is to minimize the toll separation can take on you and your children, and maximize the opportunity for creative resolution and settlement. I obtained my mediation certification under the auspices of the Law Society of Upper Canada, and I am an Associate Member of the Ontario Association for Family Mediation. I am also a certified Collaborative Practitioner.  Please click on ‘Family Law’ in the services section to take you to your area of interest.  I invite you to call our office to arrange a free initial consultation.

As an experienced surrogacy and fertility law lawyer, I am here to guide and support you through the complex and emotional process of creating your family using assisted reproductive technology. Whether you are an intended parent, a gestational carrier, an egg or sperm donor, or whether, as a fertility industry provider, you need legal assistance with consents, research, or legal opinions, I can provide you with the knowledge, service and assistance you deserve and need. Because I also practice family law, I understand how a variety of family law issues, such as parentage, custody and support, intersect with your fertility law issues. I have helped people from the world over to build their families, including: across Canada, England, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Israel, Australia and the United States.
