Barbara Mac Lellan, grew up in Inverness, Cape Breton, completed her Bachelor of Arts Honours in Psychology Degree at St. Francis Xavier University, after which she travelled to Windsor, Ontario to law school. Barbara graduated with her LL.B from the University of Windsor Ontario in 1992. She then moved back to Nova Scotia in 1993 and opened Fall River Law Office in 1996. Barbara practices in the areas of real estate, family law, wills/estates and assists small business with their corporate work.
Barbara has been trained in the Collaborative Law model since 2006 which assists couples in resolving the potential disputes resulting from their separation in a respectful and compassionate way. This process involves getting to know each spouse’s most important needs and through co-mediation helping them reach agreements that meet each of their needs. The process of reaching these agreements provides an incredible learning experience for parents to communicate effectively about their children long after the lawyers are no longer involved. Barbara is very cognizant of the expense of separation and divorce; she believes that the collaborative family law process “is the best bang for your buck”.
