GET TO KNOW Manny Witzman
Emmanuel (Manny) Witzman graduated from Queen’s University Law School in 2009 and was called to the British Columbia Bar in 2010. He has been practicing exclusively in family and divorce law since then. He has extensive litigation experience at the Provincial Court and the Supreme Court of BC, and has also appeared at the BC Court of Appeal.
Manny’s experience is focused on complex matters of child custody and guardianship, including cases of alleged child abuse, parental alienation, and child protection matters involving the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Manny’s experience also extends to cases about child and spousal support, as well as property division cases involving business interests, trusts, and/or foreign assets.
Taking a client-focused approach, Manny has assisted clients with all types of family law matters, from drafting separation agreements to conducting trials, and everything in between. As litigation can be time consuming, costly, and stressful for all involved, Manny always tries to reach an amicable settlement, leaving Court as a last resort. In those cases where Court action is necessary, Manny’s experience with family law litigation will give you the best chance of success.
In his free time, Manny can often be found caring for his dog Zero and cat Hobbes, hiking, skiing, or playing music.
