Sina Hariri is a lawyer who enjoys wearing many hats (litigator, mediator, instructor) but all of these hats are anchored in a passion for problem solving in family law. Immediately following a rich family law focused articling term, Sina realized a passion in family law and founded his own practice in the area. His passion for dispute resolution in the family law arena led him to get his Masters of Law in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) from Osgoode Hall, and more recently, his Accredited Family Mediator status with the Ontario Association for Family Mediation and Certified Specialist in Family Dispute Resolution from the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario. Actively involved in all things Family Law and ADR, Sina is an Executive member of the Ontario Bar Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution, and Young Lawyers Section. Previously, he was also on the Executive of the OBA Family Law Section. He sits as a Board Member with the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario where he is actively involved with public education and outreach, and is part of the group of FDRIO Family Law experts collaborating with the Ryerson Legal Innovation Zone to develop their Family Assist Portal. He is also a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada, Canadian Bar Association, Peel Law Association, Family Lawyer’s Association, and Self-Rep Navigators, a group of lawyers who provide limited scope retainers and unbundled services to self-represented litigants in Ontario. Sina is passionate about access to justice initiatives and increasing awareness of alternatives to court by ensuring the accessibility of information available to the public.
