Michelle has practiced personal injury law her entire career, including throughout her articles. She also offers specialized expertise in securing compensation for victims of crime and survivors of sexual abuse in accordance with governing legislation, and principles of administrative law and natural justice. She is adept at providing written advocacy and has submitted numerous briefs and factums to the Criminal Injuries Review Board, the Court of Appeal of Alberta and the Queen’s Bench of Alberta.
The daughter of an electrician, Michelle worked in “the patch” over the course of many years, and is as comfortable in an industrial setting as an office tower. Profoundly committed to her community, she continues to devote countless hours to volunteer service work, from mentorship, training and directing education programs to more than half a decade of ongoing weekly shifts as a Crisis Line operator, counselling callers on issues related to sexual violence.
Clients know Michelle to be sincere, diligent and refreshingly non-judgmental, driven by a tireless work ethic and a deep-rooted need to set things right for people who have been harmed through the actions of others.
