Micah Chartrand

Micah graduated with Distinction from the University of Saskatchewan College of Law in 2011.  During his studies, Micah was active with several student organizations and maintained close ties to his community.  Micah developed a keen interest for courtroom advocacy while working with CLASSIC, a student legal clinic servicing the Saskatoon Inner City Community, where he advocated for numerous clients in the areas of family law and criminal law at the Provincial Court level.

After graduation, Micah practiced civil litigation with leading firms in Winnipeg and Calgary.  Under the mentorship of some of Western Canada’s leading advocates, Micah gained extensive experience in the areas of Aboriginal law, environmental law, labour and employment law, and corporate litigation.

Since 2011, Micah has worked closely with Indian Residential School Survivors participating in the Independent Assessment Process and continues his work with Survivors while practicing law in Alberta.  Micah serves as a professional mentor to undergraduate and law students across Canada and maintains a close connection to cultural institutions which have supported him throughout his career.

Shortly after being called to the Alberta Bar, Micah decided to pursue his passion advocating for individual clients facing real life challenges.  Micah works to find cooperative and collaborative solutions for his clients’ problems; however, Micah is fully prepared to move forward with highly contentious matters and works alongside some of the most experienced courtroom family lawyers in Alberta.

Micah is proud to have represented his country overseas as a rugby player and continues to be involved with the sport at a recreational level.  Micah also attempts to play guitar and sing in his band the “Advo-cats”, a group of lawyers who raise money for various charities throughout the year.
