Mary got her Juris Doctor from the University of Windsor in 2010. During Law School, Mary continued to be actively involved in the community as a Case Worker at the Community Legal Aid Office as well as a Researcher at Pro Bono Student’s Canada. She also successfully completed the Mediation Program.
After law school, Mary articled at a national law firm where she obtained experience in business, intellectual property and advocacy and was admitted to the Law Society of Upper Canada as well as Law Society of Alberta in 2011. Thereafter, she worked both as in-house counsel as well as in private practice but was drawn to family law and wills & estates because it gave her the best opportunity to do what she went to law school for – to help people every single day in a way that truly makes a difference.
Mary has litigated for clients in both the Court of Queen’s Bench and Provincial Court level in a broad range of family law issues including child support, spousal support, custody and access and division of property. Outside of the court forum, Mary also has experience as a mediator. As a member of the Conciliation and Arbitration Board (CAB), Mary is a trained mediator and works with parties who are unable to resolve issues related to family, matrimonial or small commercial disputes, to reach a mutually agreeable resolution in an equitable, efficient, confidential and cost-effective manner.
In addition to her family law practice, Mary also practices in Wills and Estates matters.
