 Wills & Estates Solicitor, 2-5 year call

 de Villars Jones LLP is searching for an enthusiastic associate to join our estates team and build their career with us. The successful candidate will bring exceptional client care and a highly professional approach to a diverse practice that focuses on estate planning, estate administration, as well as some corporate law and real estate conveyancing.

The firm’s core values of collaboration, work-life balance, and creating a respectful workplace are only part of what makes this opportunity special.

Our senior partners have mastery in their areas of law and all of our lawyers take a highly cerebral approach to their practice. The firm has a long-standing reputation of excellence in the Edmonton Bar, the judiciary, and amongst our colleagues. We have deep roots in the community. If you are passionate about learning and are community-minded, we strongly encourage you to apply.

Core Values

1. Delivering high quality legal work to diverse clients and friends that reflect our long-term relationship goals. We will communicate clearly and in plain language throughout all engagements.

More about de Villars Jones LLP

de Villars Jones was formed in 1988 when Anne de Villars and David Jones decided they wanted more flexibility in their work, and the freedom to practise law on their terms. They believed then—as they do now—in the value of excellence, attention to detail, client service … and the fortifying power of a cup of tea. Although the firm has grown over the years, these values continue to define us.

You might find our approach a little different than others: we look for solutions before we look for battles (although we most definitely do know how to litigate!); we seek to understand before we offer advice, and we pay attention to what’s important to our clients in their particular legal situation.

We thank you for your interest!
