General Counsel at Fairway Divorce Solutions in Calgary
Brittany has practiced almost exclusively in the area of Family Law since being called to the bar. After guiding clients through the court system and litigation, Brittany realized she wished to help people work their way through separation and divorce in a way that wouldn’t destroy the family unit. At Fairway, Brittany works closely with our Resolution Experts to ensure that all of our offices have the best and most current understanding of matrimonial and family law across Canada, as well as providing legal information about family law to clients. Additionally, she provides consultative advice to our Resolution Experts on matters affecting individual case files to ensure that our clients receive the best service possible.
Brittany holds an honours double major in English and History from York University, and a JD from the University of Alberta. She previously articled and practiced in Medicine Hat, before returning home to Calgary. When not at work, Brittany spends her time as a board member and volunteer for the pre-professional youth ballet company Jeunesse Classique Ballet Society, taking pictures as an amateur photographer, and baking.
I have seen, first-hand, how destructive the court process can be during the separation process. The antagonistic nature of court makes it too easy for the relationship between parents and children to be ruined and wealth sapped away. There is a better way.
Brittany works out of both the Calgary and Edmonton offices, while at the same time providing support to all offices across Canada.

After obtaining her law degree from the University of Alberta, Brittany joined the Medicine Hat office of a Regional Alberta law firm with offices in Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Grand Prairie, Fort McMurray, and others. While working on some general litigation files, Brittany primarily focused on family law, gaining experience in both the Provincial Family Law Court and the Court of Queen’s Bench, while also drafting Court of Appeal documents.
In 2016, Brittany returned home to Calgary and joined a small family law firm and continued assisting clients in working through one of the most challenging times in their life, both through negotiation and by navigating the court system.
