In 1981, Anne-France Goldwater started her solo practice. In 1991, she partnered with Marie-Hélène Dubé and the firm Goldwater, Dubé was officially born.

Since that time, our firm has grown to develop an outstanding reputation in family law and has been at the centre of some of the most important decisions in recent Canadian history.

We have persuaded judges to award some of the highest child support awards ever granted, render precedent-setting decisions in matters as diverse as international kidnapping, animal welfare rights and the interpretation of religious marriage contracts, as well as help establish the legal recognition of common-law spouses and the right of same-sex couples to marry.


Passion. The best advocacy shoots from the heart before it gets to the mind. Mastering this link is the stuff great lawyers are made of. This is why we seek out and encourage lawyers who cultivate their passions, train mind to follow heart and put the whole to the service of those in need.

Compassion. Trust and empathy are the pillars of every solid attorney-client relationship. Regularly maintaining them ensures the best representation. This is why we strive to build a full, frank and honest professional relationship with each client and represent them like we would a close friend.

Tenacity. Passion and compassion are nothing without a firm intention to arrive at a desired outcome. At every stage, advocacy is an adversarial process, a clash of different interests. This is why we drill ourselves to be perpetually poised for war when it is necessary and yet primed for peace when it is possible.
