I am a criminal defence lawyer at Strategic Criminal Defence. I am a passionate and versatile advocate, and I work closely alongside my clients to help them navigate the criminal justice system and secure the best possible outcome.
I received my law degree from the University of Calgary in 2020. During law school I was heavily involved with Student Legal Assistance (SLA), a pro-bono legal clinic that provides legal services to low-income residents of Calgary and the surrounding area. Through SLA I discovered my knack for criminal law and quickly began orienting myself towards a career in criminal defence.
While at SLA I served as Trial Division Coordinator and acted as a mentor to other law students handling higher-complexity cases. In my third year of law school, I was the recipient of the Borden Ladner Gervais Trial Advocacy Internship, which recognizes a student who has made significant contributions to SLA and has demonstrated a commitment to improving access to justice. In my final year I was also selected to represent the University of Calgary at the McIntyre Cup, a criminal law trial advocacy competition.
Before practicing at Strategic Criminal Defence, I articled with and practiced in an office alongside three senior Calgary criminal defence lawyers where I assisted on many serious cases including murder, manslaughter, sexual assault, and kidnapping.
Since my call to the bar, I have maintained an exclusive focus in criminal defence. I have handled a wide variety of criminal charges including assault, drug trafficking, firearms charges and impaired driving. I have successfully represented clients at each stage of the criminal justice process, including at bail hearings, trial, and sentencing.
I offer flexible payment structures.
