More Information:

In the heart of Calgary, Kristin McDonald distinguishes herself as a family lawyer with a keen focus on resolving high-conflict separations and disputes. Her journey through a decade in human resources before diving into law has armed her with an exceptional ability to navigate the complexities of interpersonal conflicts, offering her clients a unique combination of empathy and determination.

Kristin is a staunch advocate for settling disputes outside of court, exploring every avenue from negotiation to arbitration to find peaceful solutions. Yet, she doesn’t shy away from litigation when it’s the only path left, standing as a formidable force in the courtroom to protect her clients' rights.

A significant area of Kristin’s expertise lies in navigating the intricacies of pension rights during the division of property after a marriage ends. Recognizing pensions as critical yet often overlooked assets, she guides her clients through the maze of legal options to safeguard their interests, aiming to secure their financial future and retirement plans without succumbing to undue stress and expense.

Kristin’s approach to family law is deeply rooted in finding equitable, sensible, and cost-efficient outcomes for her clients. She dedicates herself to forming partnerships with her clients, centering their needs and the well-being of their families in her legal strategy. Whether it's crafting agreements or addressing support and property issues, Kristin’s goal is to pave the clearest path through the legal process for those she represents.

Her expertise spans a broad spectrum, covering everything from contentious divorces to drafting essential legal agreements, and handling emergency protection or restraining orders with a focus on high-conflict parenting situations.

Beyond her direct legal work, Kristin’s commitment to her community and professional development is evident. She has served as a co-chair for the Women’s Legal Forum and devoted her time to volunteering at the Women’s Centre legal advice clinic and Calgary Legal Guidance. Her dedication to staying abreast of the latest in family law through continuous education underscores her commitment to excellence and advocacy in her field.

When she’s not immersed in legal battles or community service, Kristin indulges in travel, dabbles in art (by her own admission, not always successfully), and enjoys quiet moments with her cats and a glass of wine, adding a personal touch to her distinguished professional profile.
