Amanda Marsden is a Managing Lawyer who brings a unique blend of expertise that sets her apart in the realm of family law. Before focusing exclusively on family law, Amanda honed her skills at a prestigious national law firm, where she delved into the complexities of corporate law, gaining valuable insights that now give her an edge in handling high net-worth property settlements for her clients.
A Holistic Approach to Family Law
Beyond her legal prowess, Amanda brings a distinctive background in psychology to her practice, making her exceptionally adept at navigating the emotionally challenging aspects that clients often encounter during separation. She understands the importance of providing empathetic support, guiding her clients through the court system while addressing one of the most difficult emotional experiences they may ever face. Recognizing that each client is unique, Amanda ensures individualized treatment that demonstrates utmost sensitivity to their situation.
Empowering Clients Through Education
Passionate about empowering her clients, Amanda firmly believes in equipping them with a clear understanding of the legal issues surrounding their circumstances. Her dedication lies in presenting the law in an easy to understand and accessible manner, making you feel in control of your own situation and ensuring your voice is heard throughout the entire legal process.
Amanda's approach to dispute resolution is rooted in the belief that a negotiated settlement is often the best outcome. She diligently explores alternative dispute resolution methods whenever possible. However, when situations call for it, Amanda is an excellent advocate in court, tenaciously fighting for her clients' rights and interests. Though she has successfully appeared in all levels of Court in Alberta, the majority of her practice centers on the mediation/arbitration process.
Committed to the Community
Giving back to the community is important to Amanda. She has volunteered time to assist victims of domestic violence, new immigrants to Canda, and individuals in crisis situations. The training she received in volunteering at a crisis center helps her address her client’s most urgent needs.
When Amanda isn't advocating for her clients, she indulges her love for travel, cherishing moments spent with her family. An avid runner and gardening enthusiast, Amanda finds solace and inspiration in nature.
Amanda is a very caring and compassionate individual with a big heart and a level of understanding and commitment that goes above and beyond. From the very first time I spoke with her, I knew she would put the needs of my family and I first.
