Family Law

Ruth Kalnitsky Roth is the head of the Family Law Group. She has practiced exclusively in the field of family law since 2008. 

Ruth obtained her law degree from the Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco, California in 2006 and was called to the California bar immediately thereafter. She began her career balancing family law matters with Federal Civil Rights matters involving the wrongful removal of children from their families by child welfare agencies. In 2008, Ruth founded the Law Offices of Ruth Kalnitsky where she developed a vivacious practice assisting her clients in the litigation and negotiation of their separation, asset division, child custody and support issues. Ruth's practice also involved an adoption and assisted reproduction component in both contract formation and litigating matters involving agency or facilitator misconduct. 

After moving to Ontario and being called to the bar, Ruth acquainted herself with the legal system by working at a well-known family law boutique and a smaller general practice firm before joining BT Legal in 2021. 

Ruth's clients describe her as a tireless, level-headed, advocate that will never compromise her integrity. In every matter, Ruth is committed to moving things forward as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
