I graduated in 2010 from the Central University in New Delhi, India with an Honours degree in Law. I then practiced law in New Delhi for four years, concentrating primarily in the areas of Civil Litigation, Banking Laws, Consumer Laws, Family Law, and Corporate Law. During my practice years in India, I gained the insight of empathy and compassion and how to apply those qualities in advocating for my clients' legal issues.

After four years of practice in New Delhi, I moved to Edmonton and began the process to become accredited to practice law in Canada. That process took a further year of study and I received my Certificate of Qualification from the Canadian National Committee on Accreditation in 2016.

I completed my Canadian articles with both a Family Law firm and a General Practice law firm practicing in the areas of family law, real estate, wills and estate planning, corporate law, selling and buying of businesses, contract review, and civil litigation in the Edmonton area. I was called to bar in Alberta in December 2017. My years working as a lawyer in India and my Canadian training has given me a broad legal experience. I am able to provide clients advice in areas such as family law, real estate law, wills and estate planning, corporate law, commercial transactions and contract reviews. Each of these areas have their own, unique dynamics, but in many cases I have found that my knowledge in one area assists me in resolving problems in another.

When I meet with a client, my goal is to simply to help him or her to solve their problems. I believe that it is vital to be forthright with clients about their issues and to present solutions which are both practical and beneficial. A client should understand the challenges they are facing, and I believe that only when they understand those challenges will they be able to make reasonable, informed decisions.

I am fluent in English, Hindi, Gujarati and Punjabi. I love living in Edmonton and when I am not at the office, I spend time with my family and enjoy travelling.
