Speaks French & English
My name is Marty Klein. I’ve been a family law lawyer, having practiced throughout the GTA for over three decades. My real passion is in keeping people, parents and especially their children out of court, for I have come to understand the divisiveness (and needless-to-say costs) often associated with the law model. And truly, now is the time for people to be re-empowered, so that they, rather than strangers, may bring resolve in their lives.
I am a Certified Specialist in Family Mediation (FDRP Med) and in Family Arbitration (FDRP Arb) with FDRIO (Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario) and an Accredited Mediator (AccFM) with OAFM (Ontario Association of Family Mediation). I am also trained in the collaborative process and in parental coordination. I am a board member of FDRIO and Chair of Mediation-Arbitration Peel. I also hold memberships in: the Alternate Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario (ADRIO); the Ontario Association of Family Mediation (OAFM); the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP); the Peel-Halton Collaborative Practice Group and the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC).
I preside at least one day a week as a Deputy Judge in the Small Claims Court in Brampton, and also sit as a Dispute Resolution Officer (DRO) in the Superior Court of Justice at Brampton. Additionally, I am a Licensee to place children for private adoptions in Ontario.
I tend to keep myself involved in numerous committees and community agencies, being on the boards of PCHS (Punjabi Community Health Services); the Family Mediation Resource Centre (FMRC) and the Ontario Deputy Judges Association (ODJA). I also hold memberships in the Family Lawyers Association and Peel Law Association. For many years I was an instructor for the Law Society of Upper Canada’s Bar Admission Course.
Above all else, is my relentless commitment to “fairness” and pursuit of “no-court” resolution of conflict.
