Biographical Info

Tammy  graduated law school in 2003 from the University of Saskatchewan before moving to Edmonton and commencing her legal career in Alberta.  Since 2006 Tammy has practiced exclusively in the area of family law.  For over a decade Tammy has been an aggressive litigation lawyer handling matters within the Court system.  However many years of experience in practicing family law has demonstrated that family law disputes are not well suited to the adversarial nature of litigation.  Since 2014 Tammy has actively pursued Collaborative Law because she believes strongly that Collaborative Law is a better method for resolving all issues, matters and disputes between former partners and/or co-parents than litigation.

The Collaborative Law process allows the parties to retain full decision making powers because BOTH parties have equal say in the process, and in agreements reached.  No Judge dictates/orders what will happen with your children or your finances in the Collaborative Law Process.  You decide.  You work with your former partner and both lawyers (each person has their own lawyer to protect his/her interests and guide the process) to reach a resolution you are both satisfied with.

Tammy accepts both Collaborative Law files and Litigation files however she finds the Collaborative Law process produces better results for the client in a more timely and less adversarial manner.
