Legal AssistantQueck Associates & Law Office - Edmonton Law Firms
Megan joined Queck & Associates in September 2020 as an articling student after graduating from the University of Alberta Faculty of Law, and was called to the Alberta bar in October 2021. Prior to attending law school, Megan obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Criminology from the University of Alberta.
Megan practices almost exclusively in the area of Family Law and has since the time she joined Queck & Associates. Please note that at this time Megan is only taking on limited scope files, such as preparation of and/or independent legal advice on Prenuptial, Cohabitation or Separation Agreements, review of divorce documents, or other family law matters that are limited scope in nature. She is also able to prepare simple estate planning documents. Megan also assists other lawyers in the office with completing legal work on files, so if you hire another lawyer in our office, you may still have some interaction with Megan if she assists on your matter.
While in law school, Megan was very involved with Student Legal Services (SLS) on various access to justice initiatives. She was a summer caseworker with SLS’s Legal Education & Reform and Pro Bono Students Canada Projects, and then served as a supervisor of these projects during her last year of law school. With this position, she regularly attended social service agencies to provide individuals with legal information and referrals on a wide variety of legal topics. In December 2019, Megan co-authored a report discussing the disproportionate effect bylaw enforcement and criminal charging had on Edmontonians experiencing homelessness. Megan also co-created and facilitated a pro bono Wills Project in partnership with a local non-profit organization, to provide low-income seniors with wills, powers of attorney and personal directives, prepared by law students under lawyer supervision. Additionally, she participated in the inaugural Western Canada Family Law Negotiation Competition, a moot that simulated family law negotiations. She and her partner were awarded first place in the category of “Best Representation Plan”.
In her spare time, Megan enjoys hiking in the mountains, international travel, cycling or walking in Edmonton’s river valley, trivia, and learning languages.
