Helping you get on with your life

Welcome

Collaborative dispute resolution processes allow you to reach outcomes that you agree to, that are workable, and that are private.  Some people think that divorce is an expensive, ugly, drawn-out battle where nobody wins.  I help people reach a satisfying conclusion using Mediation.

In Mediation you are treated with respect.  You control how soon you resolve your dispute and get on with your life.  I facilitate and work with you to maintain important relationships.  I have over 33 years of dispute resolution experience.

Deb has offices in Vancouver and on the North Shore.

Testimonials

"When my husband and I separated, I did some research around our options for negotiating a separation agreement. Since we are pretty amicable, and with cost a consideration, we agreed to try the collaborative law process. I am very glad that we did it this way.

Deb Zutter is fair, organized, honest, and the epitome of what a collaborative lawyer should be. She kept her eye on our goals and the dignity of the process, and remained focused, while making sure that everything important was addressed. She acknowledged and dealt with my many emotions, while remaining sensible and pragmatic. She was kind to me and to my spouse, and kept the needs of our children and the financial realities in mind. There were some complications in the process, which Deb handled with intelligence, grace and skill. She kept in contact, and was approachable and open.

I would not hesitate to recommend Deb Zutter for anyone interested in collaborative family law."
