Family Lawyer

Özlem took on her first family law file as a sole practitioner starting a new family law practice. She learned a lot during those years, being involved with all aspects of her cases and developing strong professional relationships with her clients. Now Özlem is happy to provide her services alongside lawyers and support team at Sicotte Guilbault Professional Corporation.

Before embarking into the family law realm, Özlem explored a variety of other legal issues. She completed a commerce degree, engaged in two years of privacy law research and writing, provided legal advocacy for minority communities in Washington, D.C., and articled at a boutique insurance defense law firm in Ottawa. When Özlem ultimately took up practicing family law, she knew she had found the right fit. In a sense, family law rights and human rights, and Özlem always strive to ensure that, upon separation, former partners have a fair chance in the legal system, are able to sustain the necessaries of life, and meet the best interests of their children.
