Biographical Info

Yoko Azumaya obtained her Law Degree from the University of Alberta in 2007 after achieving a Master’s Degree in Neuroscience and a second Master’s Degree in Psychiatry. A career path in law seemed to be the obvious choice as it is a profession that combines both analytical skills and a passion for customer service.


Yoko has focused her practice in Family Law, dealing with issues affecting both married and unmarried couples, including divorce, parenting, support, and division of property issues. Her goal is to help families transition through this difficult period. With this objective in mind, she is diligent in explaining not only the law but also the process to her clients to reduce the emotional and psychological stress of the breakup.


Yoko emphasizes the importance of negotiation and settlement to bring fitting results to clients. With the belief that the parties would reach the most satisfactory outcome through negotiation, she has had many hours of training through the ADR Institute of Alberta (ADRIA) to be an effective mediator. Her strong mediation skills as well as her solid legal knowledge would both be valuable assets for a successful Collaborative Law practice.
