He is certified to practice Collaborative Family Law and has proficiently represented clients through the Collaborative law process in the Greater Toronto Area.

He has represented clients across the GTA, including in Toronto, Newmarket, Milton, Brampton, Oshawa, Lindsay, Barrie, Peterborough, and Bracebridge.

His practice primarily focuses on family law, including domestic contracts, divorce, custody and access, child protection, support, property, and equalization issues. Leonardo is supported by a professional team and a network of professionals.
Leonardo is a family man who understands the difficulty and joys of raising children. He is also sensitive to each clients’ unique family needs and issues. He understands that each family requires a tailored approach. Interviewed in My Business Magazine, Leonardo said:
“We all need laughter and hope, especially in family law which is filled with turmoil and negative feelings. We should all strive to see and bring out the best in each other. I have seen client’s self-realization of their true worth and potential bring tears of happiness and smiles where confusion, sadness, and fear once resided.”
Leonardo is a member of the Law Society of Ontario, The Canadian Bar Association, and the Ontario Bar Association. He was interviewed for My Business Magazine, which can be read here.
