Jessica is a devoted lawyer who strives to achieve practical and timely results for her clients. After graduating cum laude from law school at the University of Ottawa, Jessica was selected to clerk with the Court of Queen’s Bench in Calgary. Mentored by the Honourable Justice Kristine Eidsvik, and working closely with other members of the Bench, Jessica gained a unique perspective of the trial process. This invaluable knowledge allows Jessica to better serve her clients, both inside and outside of the courtroom. Since being called to the Bar, Jessica has gained trial experience both in the Provincial Court of Alberta and the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench.
Jessica’s practice focuses on personal injury claims (from both a defence and plaintiff perspective), acting for insurers and insureds on property loss and subrogated loss claims, construction litigation and commercial insurance claims.
Jessica also acts for clients involved in family law matters. She believes in resolving disputes without unnecessary conflict. She strives to find creative, practical and cost-effective solutions that meet the needs of her clients.
Jessica is an active member of the Advocates Society, and regularly attends seminars to further her knowledge, build her skills and sharpen her advocacy competencies.
Prior to law school, Jessica completed an undergraduate degree in French and Hispanic Studies and a Master of Arts in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, which allowed her to spend time studying and traveling in Quebec, France and Spain.
Outside of the office, Jessica enjoys spending time with her children, husband and dogs, exploring Calgary and the outdoors. She also regularly volunteers with the YMCA teaching various fitness classes.
