Debra J. Price
Debra graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Arts in 1987 and then went on to law school at the University of Alberta, graduating in 1990. She was called to the Alberta Bar in 1991 and has been practicing in Calgary for over 25 years.
Debra managed her own practice for approximately 24 years and has joined RCMV in 2017 in large part because she believes they have the same philosophy when practicing law. Although she has practiced in many areas of law, family law has always been her predominate interest and she continues to do everything she can to assist her clients in moving through difficult personal times. Debra is a member of the Canadian Bar Association and continues to advance her education throughout her practice. In addition, she has been a passionate volunteer with Calgary Legal Guidance, has worked through Legal Aid Alberta and has volunteered at the University of Calgary Law School.
Debra has always been a strong advocate of families resolving their issues outside of the court process and continues to work towards mediated agreements whenever possible. She is a trained mediator and licensed arbitrator and has worked with Justice Services as a Dispute Resolution Officer since 2003 and in private mediation/arbitrations as well. Debra has also practiced at all three levels of the Alberta courts and continues to attend court on behalf of clients whenever there is no other avenue available.
