Zahra H. Jimale
Lawyer, Mediator & Educator
I am a family law lawyer, collaborative divorce lawyer, mediator and an educator. I assist individuals and couples engaged in family law disputes reach sensible & sustainable outcomes. I am passionate about what I do and strongly believe in avoiding adversarial models of dispute resolution. I have extensive experience negotiating and drafting complex cohabitation, marriage, and separation agreements and have appeared before all levels of courts in British Columbia. My extensive family law litigation background informs my work and my strongly held belief that family law issues should not be litigated and if litigation must be pursued it should be done in a thoughtful and sensible manner.
I am dedicated to the improvement of access to justice for all, promoting social justice, equality and effecting positive social change. I enjoy community service and sharing knowledge through education. I provide family law seminars to the public at no cost and teach Family and Justice: Interdisciplinary Perspectives at Royal Roads University.
