Marcus Sixta, B.A., J.D.

Education: University of Calgary

Paralegal: Amanda Bulk

What do you do?

I am a family law lawyer / divorce lawyer who strives to provide clients with exceptional service in the following areas: divorce, child custody, guardianship, parenting time, child support, spousal support or alimony, matrimonial property division, prenuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements, unjust enrichment, child protection, restraining orders, adoptions, adult guardianship and trusteeship, and mediation.

I believe that my clients are best served by avoiding unnecessary litigation. I use my unique experience and training as a social worker and family law lawyer to help families come to negotiated settlements in order to reduce conflict. However, I also understand that sometimes strong advocacy within the court system is the only option and I regularly appear in court on family law and divorce law cases.

I also understand that the cost of legal assistance can be daunting and I can offer cost effective solutions like flat rates for divorces, prenuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, separation agreements and adult guardianship and trusteeship applications.

What are your strengths?

I was a social worker before becoming a family law lawyer and I completed my articles with Alberta Justice where I worked in child protection, criminal prosecutions, appeal and the office of the Public Trustee. This background gave me the skills to assist people working through difficult divorces and family law disputes. It also gave me significant courtroom experience and I have conducted numerous trials and hearings in court on family law cases.

I have received the Howard Tidswell Memorial Award in Law and the Alberta Provincial Court Judges Award of Merit for my volunteer work and courtroom advocacy skills.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about family law and providing outstanding service to my clients. I am a strong advocate for my clients as their family law / divorce lawyer but I also strive to mediate even complex divorce law matters. I am also excited to be able to offer clients flat rate divorces, separation agreements, prenuptial agreement and adult guardianship applications as more and more people are demanding flat rate family law and divorce services.

Activities outside of work

In my spare time, I enjoy snowboarding, cooking, photography, painting and running.

I also enjoy giving back to the community and I volunteer for Student Legal Assistance and am a past board member of HIV community link.
