Farrah Hudani is a senior associate with Wilson Christen LLP having joined the team in May, 2011. She previously hailed from the United States (born and raised in Texas) where she obtained a law degree from Washington State. Her early years of practice found her back in Texas. Life circumstances prompted the move to Ontario where she completed her Accreditation for the Ontario Bar.
Her practice now encompasses all areas of family law including property and support claims, jurisdiction issues, mobility issues, as well as custody and access disputes. Farrah also remains a member of the American bar. She now also has an LL.M. in Family Law from Osgoode Hall Law School.
Farrah quickly established herself as a strong and leading advocate at all levels of Court in Ontario. Her first reported decision was in the area of inter-jurisdiction disputes – specifically litigation between a payor parent in Ontario and a recipient parent in a foreign jurisdiction. She was entirely successful and that decision is now one of the leading cases in the area. See Long v. Seelman (2012) O.J. No. 892 (S.C.J.).
She is a strong advocate for her clients. She has taken a specific interest in inter-jurisdictional family law issues particularly obtaining Orders which supersede those rendered outside of Ontario, Hague Convention cases, and dealing with support cases when one party resides outside of Canada. She has written on the topic, presented on the issue at the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, as well as successfully argued leading reported cases on this issue.
Farrah is fair, reasonable and knowledgeable. She imparts this to the client, opposing counsel, and the court with clarity and precision.
Farrah is a member of various professional organizations including the Advocates Society, the Ontario Bar Association, the Law Society of Upper Canada and the South Asian Bar Association.
