Cox & Palmer announced that Michelle Axworthy has joined the firm’s Halifax partnership.

According to the firm’s press release, Axworthy, a family lawer, will work closely with her clients to assist in the negotiation and preparation of separation agreements, cohabitation and marriage contracts, adoptions and assisted reproduction agreements.

Axworthy has experience in all family law issues related to parenting, support, division of assets and debts, interjurisdictional disputes and considerations related to business ownership. She appears regularly between the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia Family Division and Court of Appeal. She also prepares wills, powers of attorney, personal directives and trusts, particularly in the case of blended families, or in conjunction with cohabitation or marriage contracts.

Before being admitted to the Nova Scotia bar, Axworthy completed her law degree at Queen’s University and earned a BA (honours) in French and Spanish from the University of King’s College.
