Our Legal Team

Vanessa Fiorillo

Articling Student

I was driven to pursue the profession of law because I am fascinated by human stories and our capacity for resilience. I view the opportunity to help someone with their legal issue as a great privilege. 

I was born and raised in Edmonton and completed both my Bachelor of Arts and Juris Doctor at the University of Alberta. After graduating, I completed a clerkship with the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, before joining the Weir Bowen team. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn a great deal about oral and written advocacy, which I intend to apply to my practice. 
 
During law school, I volunteered with Student Legal Services, Edmonton Community Legal Centre, and the Edmonton Humane Society. Outside the office I enjoy travelling, painting, checking out local restaurants, spending time with friends and family, and spoiling my absurdly sassy dog.
