Biography

Greta has worked with clients on a variety of family law and other litigation matters for more than 18 years.  Greta is committed to delivering client service that is sensitive to the complex, contentious, and emotionally charged dynamics of family law situations.  She is focused on ensuring that her clients understand the legal process and are provided with realistic expectations of the results for their specific circumstance, taking into account that no two cases are alike.  Greta’s practice encompasses all matters affecting married and common law partners and families, including guardianship, parenting time, residency, child and spousal support, property division, trusts, divorce and adoption.

The commitment to act in her clients’ best interest has Greta working towards an early, cost effective resolution for her clients.  However, if early resolution is not realistically achievable, Greta thoroughly prepares a case for mediation, arbitration or trial.  Her attention to detail, knowledge of the law, and good client communication ensures that each client is provided with strong representation.

Greta is adept at negotiating and drafting cohabitation, marriage and separation agreements that are specifically tailored for her clients’ particular needs.

Her common sense and practical approach garners Greta significant referrals from family counsellors, members of law enforcement, former clients, and other lawyers.

Greta provides legal services through Greta I. Reiten Law Corporation.
