Jenna is a dedicated family lawyer who can also assist clients with their estate planning needs. With a legal education from the University of Buckingham and a Master of Laws from the University of British Columbia, she has focused her legal career on family law since 2017.
Empowerment Through Knowledge & Communication
Jenna is a staunch advocate for a cooperative and informed approach in family law. She prioritizes educating her clients about their rights, while simultaneously fostering open communication with all parties involved. Emphasizing the significance of collaboration, Jenna promotes mediation and other alternative dispute resolution techniques—such as 4-way meetings and settlement conferences—as effective means to resolve conflicts. Her mission is not only to empower clients with knowledge but also to position them at the helm of their decision-making process. This proactive approach often spares families the uncertainties and adversities of litigation.
Comprehensive Agreements Tailored to You
In the event of a separation, Jenna is strategic in helping clients with parenting arrangements, property equalization and division, as well as support issues. Family law is not always clear cut and separating spouses require an outside of the box thinker to help work through their issues. Jenna’s drafting talents coupled with her ability to work through complex and intricate ideas is a huge benefit to clients. With the end goal being a comprehensive agreement, Jenna will work with you each step of the way.
For couples engaging in the family law process by cohabitating or by getting married, she is an excellent resource to discuss implementing an agreement between you and your future partner. Jenna specializes in cohabitation, pre-nuptial, and post-nuptial agreements. Leveraging her extensive experience, she crafts agreements meticulously tailored to your specific needs, ensuring both current clarity and future protection.
Guiding You Towards a Secure Future with Estate Planning
Jenna’s dedication and empathetic nature extends to her estate planning practice, where she works hand-in-hand with each client to construct a thorough plan for the future. Her attention to detail and client-centered approach ensure that her clients understand and are supported throughout the process.
Versatility in Advocacy – From Mediation to the Courtroom
Jenna believes that everyone deserves to be heard and she works diligently to protect her clients' rights throughout their legal journey. Although she actively works to resolve matters outside of court, she is no stranger to the courtroom and has assisted multiple clients with matters including support, parenting and relocation in Provincial Court as well as property disputes in Supreme Court.
As Jenna is passionate about working together in an amicable fashion to achieve a desired result, she is efficient and diligent in her practice and with her clients. She will inform you of the reality of your instructions rather than waste your resources on unnecessary legal fees.

- Separation agreements
- Parenting Agreements and arrangements

Outside the courtroom, Jenna is an active volunteer, continually seeking out ways to make a positive impact and give back to her community. When not at work, Jenna enjoys treating her dog like an Instagram model, visiting new local places, drinking wine with friends, and travelling.
