Tara has spent the last 20 years acting for the injured. Tara has represented thousands of people, young and old: new Canadians, downtown executives, your friends, family and neighbours. Tara has even had the privilege to work for 3 different generations of some families and has come to know the families and children of hundreds of clients.
What sets Tara apart from most lawyers is that she cares deeply about her clients and their well-being. She is a problem solver that you can count on to serve your best interests all the time, every time.
Tara has always been an advocate. She was an ardent volunteer at the University of Manitoba Law Centre and she provided legal services and access to justice to hundreds of individuals while she was just a law student.
Interest in access to justice and providing legal solutions to real people, not large corporations or institutions, stayed with Tara through her articles at Wolch Pinx Tapper Scurfield, where Tara was fortunate to receive mentorship and support from Hersh Wolch.
Hersh encouraged Tara to move west to Alberta and introduced her to Jake Chadi. Jake provided Tara with an unparalleled opportunity to learn and grow. His faith that Tara could do everything that he threw at her led Tara to appear in Alberta Courts from Fort McMurray to Medicine Hat to Peace River to Lethbridge and everywhere in between.
