Assistant to Kathryn Tweedie
Family Legal Assistant
Kathryn was called to the bar in 2004. She has been practising family law for more than 18 years. Kathryn provides clients with effective legal representation and compassionate support. Kathryn has extensive experience in resolving parenting, support and property division issues associated with marriage breakdown, common-law separation, and divorce. She is seasoned in negotiating and preparing domestic contracts, such as pre-nuptial, marriage, cohabitation, and separation agreements.
Kathryn listens to her clients and provides professional guidance to help her clients achieve what is important to them. Kathryn is a trained mediator and registered collaborative lawyer. She works closely with her clients to facilitate out-of-court resolutions quickly and cost-effectively. However, Kathryn will litigate when collaborative resolutions are unfeasible.
Kathryn is passionate about family law. She has demonstrated commitment to our community and access to justice through her work with Calgary Legal Guidance and the Association of Collaborative Professionals Calgary over the years.
In her spare time, when Kathryn is not helping clients, she enjoys golfing, hiking, Pilates, reading, food, wine, gardening and Calgary Flames fandom.
