Jesse eagerly joined Kahane Law Office`s family law group in 2022. He began his lifelong commitment to learning having graduated from Mount Royal University with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice. From there, he attended the University of Alberta to complete law school graduating in 2021. Before joining the firm, Jesse completed his articles with a general practice firm in central Alberta. While there, he gained experience in a multitude of corporate and litigation matters.
Jesse was born and raised in a rural community outside of Calgary. During his education, Jesse also worked in the construction, manufacturing, forestry, and oilfield industries. A working background in the trades has imparted to him a hardworking nature and pragmatic viewpoint. He draws on both of these to address his client`s family disputes. Jesse maintains a broad family law practice dealing primarily with issues of parenting, child support, and spousal support.
During law school, he volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada which maintains Civil Claims Duty Counsel, a free legal service aiding low-income individuals who are self-represented with small claims matters. Being an avid outdoorsman, he further undertook an independent legal research paper focusing on the Public Trust Doctrine in hopes of strengthening protections for Canada`s National and Provincial parks.
Life Outside The Law
Outside the practice of law, Jesse loves spending time in the great outdoors, and can often be found in the mountains during his downtime. Camping, hiking, skating, fishing, and board games are among some of his top activities of choice.
