Stacy Petriuk, QC

Jensen Shawa Solomon Duguid Hawkes LLP, Calgary

Call: 1997


Born and raised in Calgary, I graduated from the University of Calgary with my LL.B (1996) and the University of Cambridge with my LL.M (2001). I joined JSS Barristers as its fifth lawyer in 1997.

Outside the law, I enjoy baking, cooking, gardening, the arts, hiking, travelling with my husband, and keeping up with my teen daughter and her recently acquired driver’s licence.

For the past three years, I have had the privilege to serve as a Bencher of the Law Society of Alberta. This year, with your vote, I hope to continue acting in service to my fellow lawyers and the legal profession as a Bencher.
