About Emma


Emma’s experience as a general practitioner affords her an ability to work with her clients on a wide range of legal issues.

Emma likes to take a ‘cradle to grave’ approach with her files. She prides herself on being able to represent her clients from the beginning to the end of a file, wherever that may lead. In many cases tensions can be lessened (and money can be saved) with judicious negotiations. It is Emma’s goal to see if there are cost effective ways to address outstanding issues between parties before initiating litigation. Although Emma excels in negotiating on behalf of her clients, she also has the necessary experience to take her clients’ matters to trial. Emma has successfully represented clients in both the Provincial Court of Alberta and the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta. She has also represented clients in oral evidence trials both in the Provincial Court of Alberta and the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta.

Emma has run her practice with a focus on Family Law files which has given her experience with high conflict family matters and has familiarized her with Child and Family Services.

Emma was born and raised in Alberta and enjoys exploring her home Province when time allows. When out of the office Emma enjoys travel, hiking and staying connected with friends and family.

Emma's experience in family law gave her the opportunity to expand her advocacy training to include acting as Counsel for Children and she is eager to offer these services to the Airdrie community.
