Elaine L. Lenz QC

Elaine Lenz earned her law degree from the University of Alberta in 1975. She spent the following decade building her skills and expertise through a varied and challenging legal practice, before becoming one of the founding members of the law firm of Soby Boyden Lenz. When the firm was established in 1986, it was the first law firm in Calgary to focus exclusively on providing legal services in the area of family law. Today, Soby Boyden Lenz has become one of the most respected and sought-after family law firms in the province.

In 2000, Elaine was appointed as Queen’s Counsel. In 2006, she was invited to become a member of the distinguished International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. With over 35 years of experience in family law, Elaine has earned a reputation among her peers as an outstanding family law practitioner. She has extensive experience with child and spousal support, custody and access, pre-nuptial contracts, and the drafting and enforcement of matrimonial-related contracts, and is prepared to guide her clients through any type of family legal issue or challenge.

One of the fundamental building blocks of Elaine’s practice is her commitment to direct and honest communication with her clients. Elaine understands that trust is the key to a successful lawyer/client relationship, and works hard to earn that trust. She enjoys working with clients to identify their unique issues and needs, and to set and accomplish realistic goals. She strives to provide the best possible legal advice in a compassionate and cost-effective manner.

Elaine Lenz is skilled at working with her clients to resolve family law issues through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. If these alternate methods of dispute resolution are not successful, however, she has the expertise, experience and skill to advocate for her clients in court, and she has handled cases at all levels of the Alberta court system. Thanks to her many years in the Alberta legal community, she can also refer clients to top legal professionals in other fields of practice if needed.

Elaine Lenz is a member in good standing of the Law Society of Alberta, the Canadian Bar Association, Calgary Bar Association, and the International Society of Matrimonial Lawyers. When not practicing law, Elaine enjoys scuba diving and doing wetland conservation work through Ducks Unlimited Canada.
