Micah graduated with Distinction from the University of Saskatchewan College of Law in 2011. While completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Winnipeg, Micah was an active volunteer with the Winnipeg Police Service Community Outreach Program, and the United Nations Association in Winnipeg. Shortly before entering law school, Micah worked as a Community Development Coordinator with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary, where he mentored underprivileged children and youth.
While studying at the University of Saskatchewan, Micah served as a student advocate and a member of the Board of Directors for CLASSIC, a student-run community legal clinic servicing the Saskatoon Inner City. CLASSIC provided Micah with a passion for courtroom advocacy early on, and he successfully argued criminal and family law matters before the Saskatchewan Provincial Court as a student advocate.
Upon graduating from law school, Micah practiced civil litigation with leading law firms in Winnipeg and Calgary before exclusively practicing family law. Micah is proud to be part of a full service, team oriented family law firm that works collectively to ensure that clients have every strategy, option, opinion, and resource available in resolving their complex family law matters.
Micah does not consider himself to be strictly a litigation lawyer, but rather an advocate who can be expected to adapt to the evolving landscape of a family law matter. Trust and communication are paramount in Micah’s family law practice, and his clients can expect an open line of communication at every step of the process.
Micah has assisted clients in reaching numerous mediated settlement agreements, and has successfully argued various cases before the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench and Alberta Provincial Court, in matters relating to protection orders, high conflict child custody disputes, ongoing and retroactive support, constructive trust and unjust enrichment claims, family property division, guardianship, mobility, and First Nations family law matters governed by band bylaws. In addition to his family law practice, Micah has represented victims of prolonged sexual abuse, and has successfully negotiated compensation on their behalf.
Micah is proud to have competed internationally as a rugby player, and still maintains a connection to the sport at a recreational level. When he is not spending time with his family, Micah enjoys British rock music, and attempts to sing and play guitar in his band “The JSS Advo-cats”, a group of wannabe rock star lawyers who raise money for various charities throughout the year.
