Amanda focuses her practice exclusive in family law matters, including divorce and separation, parenting arrangements, guardianship, relocation, child and spousal support, and property division. Amanda understands that family disputes can be difficult, and as a result, she is a passionate advocate for her clients and works with them to find the most appropriate path toward resolution. Amanda believes that it is important for her clients to have as much information about the process and the options available to them, so that they can make the best decision for themselves and their families.
Amanda has successfully negotiated settlement agreements for parenting, support, and property division. Amanda has also helped her clients resolve their disputes through court processes, and has appeared before the Provincial Court of Alberta, the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, and the Supreme Court of British Columbia.
Prior to joining Nixon Wenger LLP, Amanda was a partner of a boutique family law firm in Alberta. Amanda’s knowledge and experience of the Alberta legal system enables her to assist clients that have property in Alberta, or where court processes have already started in an Alberta court.

“I have had Amanda represent me in several family law matters and I couldn’t be more impressed. Amanda and her team have always been very honest and informative. She cares about the future and well-being of my children and she is not afraid to go the extra mile to ensure all steps are taken to get the best outcome she can. All legal matters I’ve had her working on have gone faster and smoother than I thought possible and the outcomes were beyond what I thought possible. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me and my children!”
