Marisha carries on a general practice of law with a particular interest in
family law-including specific fertility law issues, wills and estates, and
agriculture law.


Marisha comes from a farming family and her interest in agriculture has
continued as she assists clients in farm succession planning and
agriculture related business relationships. As a related interest area,
Marisha regularly advises clients in estate planning and estate
administration. Marisha’s wills and estate practice involves preparing
Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Health Care Directives, as well as
completing probate and administration applications for clients.


A large portion of Marisha’s practice also involves representing clients on
various family related matters including custody, parenting, child support,
spousal support, division of property, adoption matters, adult
guardianship, and drafting various forms of interspousal contracts and
separation agreements, tailored to each client’s respective needs. The
experience gained in her agricultural law practice assists her in
advocating for clients who have large corporate assets and complex
financial arrangements in family property and support matters.


Marisha also particularly enjoys assisting couples, including international
couples, expand their families by drafting gamete donor agreements,
surrogacy agreements, and the necessary court applications thereafter.


Much of Marisha’s practice involves negotiation outside of Court. However,
Marisha has appeared in all levels of Court in Saskatchewan, including
Provincial Court, the Court of Queen’s Bench, and Court of Appeal.
