I have a general litigation practice, with an emphasis on matters involving insurance defence, personal injury, wrongful death, wills and estates, represented adults, and commercial and real estate transactions.

I have extensive experience as counsel before the courts of Alberta (at trial and on appeal) and in negotiations, mediations, and judicial dispute resolution of civil claims. I taught civil litigation at the Alberta Bar Admission Course and have made presentations and chaired a number of legal education seminars. Lawyers from other firms often refer cases to me.
