Having a will means knowing that your family will be looked after if something happens to you.
Along with a will, we also recommend preparing a Personal Directive and Power of Attorney. These documents set out your wishes in the event that you are incapacitated, and designate someone you trust to manage your affairs while you are unable to.
When you’ve lost someone, winding up their affairs can be an overwhelming task. We provide a range of services to make it easier, and can help every step of the way, from a probate application through to transferring property to the beneficiaries.
No two families are exactly alike. Relationships are complex, and so are the legal matters that arise when relationships break down. We can help you navigate through the process, whether it’s negotiation and settlement, or appearing in court. We can help with separation and divorce, matrimonial property, parenting and custody, child and spousal support, as well as child welfare matters.
Have you been sued, or do you have a dispute that needs legal help to resolve? Contract disputes, condominium or other issues, contact us to see how we can help.
We provide Notary Public and Commissioner of Oaths services.

Kathy received her law degree from the University of Alberta Law School in 2013, where, as part of the University of Alberta Laskin moot team, she and her three teammates won the top school prize at the 2013 Laskin Memorial Moot. This marked the first time that any western Canadian law school had ever won this prize in the history of the national, bilingual moot competition. Kathy mooted and wrote a portion of the factum in French.
After articling with the City of Edmonton, Kathy was admitted to the Law Society of Alberta in 2014.
Kathy’s practice focuses on administrative law, wills, estate planning and administration, civil litigation, and family law. Understanding people, their families and personal circumstances plays an integral role in the estate planning process, as well as in resolving family disputes. With a strong background in customer service and driven by a strong desire to help people, Kathy understands the importance of client engagement, open communication and accountability. She is committed to treating her clients respectfully, honestly and with the utmost integrity.
Born in Calgary and raised in Alberta, Kathy has been proud to call Edmonton home since 1998. Active in the community and passionate about music and the performing arts, she has been a member of numerous organizations, including Kokopelli Youth Choir and its alumni offshoot Òran, the University of Alberta Mixed Chorus, and, since 2009, Da Camera Singers. Her commitment to serving the people of our city and of our province is also reflected in her current and past involvement with such community organizations as Student Legal Services, Santas Anonymous, her community league and the Edmonton Community Legal Centre.
