Lynn Marie Rideout
Lynn Marie is an Alberta girl who has lived all over the country, but always returns to her home Province of Alberta!
After completing her Bachelor of Arts in Criminology at the University of Alberta in 1988, Lynn Marie intended to fulfill her adolescent aspirations to study law. However, shortly after graduating, Lynn was forced to temporarily suspend these aspirations and enter the workforce.
Nevertheless, her education continued while she worked in the legal profession for 17 years developing legal skills by drafting documents, preparing legal arguments, appearing in Court for lawyers and assuming general management responsibilities for the firm for over seven years, before heading back to the University of Alberta to earn her Bachelor of Laws in 2005.
Lynn’s experience prior to becoming a lawyer gave her a breadth of experience and legal knowledge that few begin their time as a lawyer with. Her ability to analyze legal problems critically and unearth practical solutions was forged in circumstances not found in a classroom. Her reputation precedes her, as judges and opposing counsel anticipated her precision and poise in the courtroom long before she was called to the bar.
Still, Lynn has an appetite for learning and continues to attend regularly at Legal Education Society of Alberta seminars and other conferences to keep herself current with legal developments and new practice initiatives.
Lynn listens to your needs and interests and then does her very best to forge a creative legal solution to assist.
Throughout her career, Lynn has appeared or assisted other counsel in all levels of court in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. Lynn is a fierce advocate in criminal trials, and provides high-quality services in the areas of wills and estates. Her unmatched versatility complements her extensive experience and ensures that our clients will be afforded full protection from injustice.
When Lynn is not working, she is busy volunteering with Girl Guides of Canada where she has been a leader for the last 14 years. She also actively volunteers with her children’s schools and sports activities.
