Jasmine recognizes that separation and divorce is a stressful and difficult time. Her goal is to assist clients with reaching satisfactory resolution of their family law matter in a respectful and amicable way.
Jasmine was born and raised in Edmonton and completed her post-secondary education at the University of Alberta. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts in 2007 (Distinction), majoring in psychology, and her Juris Doctor in 2010. During law school, Jasmine was employed at Legal Aid Alberta and volunteered with Student Legal Services. She received the Merv Leitch, Q.C., Scholarship, having been selected by the late Hon. E. Peter Lougheed, Q.C., on the basis of superior academic achievement and volunteer commitments. Jasmine has practiced exclusively in family law since being called to the Alberta Bar in 2011. She is currently a lawyer at TC Family Law Group.
Jasmine’s volunteer experience includes working with children with disabilities at an orphanage overseas, organizing the annual collection of hundreds of care packages for children in developing countries, and working at a brain injury rehabilitation clinic. Most recently, she was a board member of a condominium board and a board member of the Association of Collaborative Family Professionals Edmonton. Currently, Jasmine is a volunteer lawyer at the Edmonton Community Legal Centre.
Jasmine enjoys spending time with her family, fitness, cooking, and travelling.
In early June 2019, I had the pleasure of participating in a podcast interview with Catherine Potter to discuss the concepts of Collaborative Practice.
The word finance evokes so many emotions in people that it can stop you in your tracks. Add in the word divorce and it becomes debilitating to a lot of people. The basic fear of not knowing what the end result will be can create more havoc, conflict, time loss, and ultimately, higher costs to reach a resolution.
The legal system is not designed for you, the individual. It’s designed for society as a whole.
