“Valuable legal service begins with listening carefully to clients, then developing constructive strategies to meet their needs.”

Jonathan is a lawyer, mediator and arbitrator with DBB’s family law team.

 

Called to the Alberta bar in 2010, Jonathan Griffith began exclusively practicing family law in 2011 and joined DBB in 2013. He has a B.A. from the University of Calgary, a law degree from the University of New Brunswick and a master’s degree in law from Osgoode Hall, York University with a specialty in family law.

 

Jonathan is committed to customizing the best possible approach to meet his clients’ needs. Trained in interest-based practices with a collaborative spirit, he believes that negotiation, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution are powerful tools to help people resolve conflict. In situations where these approaches are not possible, Jonathan brings confidence and experience as a strong advocate at provincial court, the Court of Queen’s Bench and at the Court of Appeal.

 

In addition to serving his clients passionately, Jonathan regularly publishes research on select legal topics.  He often shares his research at legal conferences such as Legal Education Society of Alberta seminars and National Family Law Program conventions.  In 2018 Jonathan and DBB’s Catherine Gerrits teamed up to co-chair LESA’s Beyond Blended Families seminar which brought legal experts from different arears together to share their knowledge about emerging trends in the development of families in Canada.

 

Jonathan is also a familiar face at the Faculty of Law at the University of Calgary where he guest lectures on select family law topics, coaches student mooting and simulation teams, speaks at networking and career services events and mentors law students interested in family law.  In addition, Jonathan presents on legal topics to members of the public at Alberta’s Parenting After Separation seminars.

 

Originally from Calgary, Jonathan is proud to make his home where he was born and has been involved with the community throughout his life.  Jonathan enjoys hiking, camping and skiing.  He’s learning (slowly) to play the violin and is an avid and unashamed gamer.  Over years Jonathan has raised over $10,000 for the Alberta Children’s Hospital in the annual gaming fundraiser, Extra Life.
