Sessions presented by Stacy Maurier, Estate Preservation
Stacy knew she wanted to be a lawyer since she was 12 years old. While attending the University of Alberta Law School, she spent her summers working at a law firm in Grande Prairie, Alberta where she acted as an agent for the Federal Crown and for prosecuted traffic court offences. After graduating in 1999, she articled at the firm, was called to the Bar, and was offered a partnership opportunity.

In 2011, Stacy and another local lawyer purchased Weary and Company Law Office from Bruce Weary Q.C and grew this firm substantially. While Stacy enjoyed the variety of work at this general law firm, she aspired to practice only wills and estate law. Wanting to create a boutique law firm where she could fight for her clients while guaranteeing they were treated respectfully and fairly, Stacy founded Estate Connection—a law office committed to helping our clients succeed in the areas of wills and estate law.

In addition to practicing law, Stacy is past Chair of the Canadian Bar Association – solo and small practitioner national section, is a current member of the Government of Alberta Second Level Management Appeal Board for opted out and excluded employees, and a Practice Assessor for the Law Society of Alberta Practice Review Committee.
