About Us

An initiative of Elliot S. Birnboim, a senior family law lawyer and commercial litigator at Chitiz Pathak LLP in Toronto, is designed to inform spouses about what is the critical piece of the puzzle in a divorce – the matrimonial home.

In an Ontario divorce proceeding, all major issues will often flow from who has ownership and possession of the family home. This asset does not just affect your property settlement: it is directly tied to child custody, child support, spousal support and an overall asset division.

About Elliot S. Birnboim

Elliot was called to the Ontario Bar in 1992. He is consulted on family law matters across Canada. His success as family law counsel over the past 22 years is reflected not only in a very significant history of satisfied clients, but also in several precedent-setting cases in the field of family law.

Elliot’s impressive professional credentials as a business and family law lawyer make him particularly adept at handling the complex financial issues at stake in divorce, particularly where property division of family businesses are at stake.

Elliot is a noted legal authority in Ontario, as the co-author of several legal publications, including the Annotated Corporate Laws of Canada and Ontario and the Ontario Family Legislation. He has provided insight to publications such as the National Post, Ottawa Citizen, Lawyers Weekly, Law Times and for radio broadcasts. He has also been an instructor for the Law Society of Upper Canada’s Bar Admission Course.

Elliot’s unique approach to family and divorce means that he is able to provide cost-effective divorce consultations and advice not only to high net worth individuals but to spouses of more modest means as well.

Elliot is proud to work alongside talented staff members at Chitiz Pathak LLP who share his commitment to meeting the legal goals of clients. To learn more about Chitiz Pathak LLP, including Elliot’s complete biography, please click the links below.
