Whether you are looking for help sorting out the complex details of your separation, figuring out how to implement a cohabitation agreement without unraveling your relationship, or transforming your divorce practice into your ideal business, you need to feel truly comfortable with the professional moving you through these deeply important and personal processes.

I'm Christina Vinters, a nationally designated Chartered Mediator, "ex" Divorce Lawyer (Non-Practicing Member of the Bar), Author of Pathways to Amicable Divorce, and Peacemaking Business Consultant.



The routine details for your due diligence:

B.A., University of Toronto.

J.D. (law degree), University of Victoria.

Family Law Mediator, Law Society of British Columbia.

Chartered Mediator, ADR Institute of Canada.

I worked as a divorce lawyer for years at a large firm working on cases involving the division of tens of millions of dollars to cases involving clients for whom the sole focus was coordinating the healthy co-parenting of their children.

I've completed hundreds of hours of continuing legal education on conflict resolution, family mediation, family dynamics, negotiation, neurochemistry of conflict, mediating with personality disorders, and more.  

I've published a book on separating well. You are welcome to download a complimentary copy of Pathways to Amicable Divorce: Directions for the Beginning of Separation. I hope you find it useful.

Alright, now that you can check off those basic competency requirements, let's talk about who I am as a person.

I've been told that I have an amazingly calm presence even in the worst of emotional storms.

I listen well for both what is said and what is meant.

I get a huge sense of satisfaction out of helping people solve the problems they had thought were intractable before we got started.

I believe that clear and prompt communication is one of the keys to getting anything done.

I'm uber-organized and of the opinion that spreadsheets are useful for everything, including planning a trip to Vegas. Yes, really...

I'm a total bookworm with a penchant for all things business, productivity and personal development related.

I'm married to my husband, Juris, of 20+ years. We have two teenage boys, two cats and a wiener dog, and we dream of building a cabana in Mexico.
