At Gunn Law Group LLP, we are convinced that there is a better way to help people through their family law disputes than litigation. Half of our firm are trained to be collaborative lawyers. Our firm has a lot of court experience. However, we also recognize that recourse to the courts in the family law setting often does more harm than good. We strive to offer our clients a respectful, efficient way of resolving their differences through mediation and collaborative law. We offer all of our services in French or English.

Area(s) of Practice: I work in the areas of mediation, Collaborative Family Law and criminal defence.
License(s): I am admitted to the Alberta, Northwest territories and Yukon Bars.

Professional Activities

I have taught courses with the Legal Education Society of Alberta, the Alberta Criminal Trial Association, The Family Law Center and to the RCMP.

Undergraduate Education

St. Francis Xavier University, 1991

Postgraduate Education

University of Alberta, 1993 and 2001


I have been a seasoned litigator since 2002 with a focus in the past on criminal defence work (both as trial and appellate counsel). In 2017, however, I began shifting my practice towards mediation and collaboration. My love for Collaborative Family Law has taken even me by surprise and has become my favorite area of law. At Gunn Law Group LLP, we strive to offer a safe and respectful environment to all of our clients, especially those in the LGBTQ+ community. I am fully bilingual and offer all of my services in either of the official languages of French and English.
