About

Alicia understands each client is unique and life events impact every family differently.  There is no one size fits all solution in family law.  Each client has a voice that needs to be heard.

Alicia’s strong litigation background allows her to tailor success-driven solutions for each individual client.  The cornerstone of Alicia’s practice is communication both with the client and opposing party/counsel.

Alicia has effectively advocated for clients in both Provincial Court and the Court of Queen’s Bench.  She also has experience representing clients in alternative dispute resolution processes, including a two-day mobility arbitration, a two-day binding JDR (parenting and support), and a one-day Provincial Court trial (parenting).

Alicia has been practicing law for 10 years with experience in both family law and civil litigation, working at both a national and mid-sized law firm before joining Dunphy Best Blocksom LLP. 

When not at the office, you will find Alicia on the running trails, trying out a new recipe in the kitchen, practicing yin yoga, or trying to keep up with her two young children.
