Originally from Ontario, Katya completed her law degree at Western University. Following law school, Katya heard the calling of the mountains and moved to the west coast. She was called to the BC bar in 2018, following which she practiced at a family law firm in downtown Vancouver. Now at Westside Family Law, Katya focusses her practice on family law and estate litigation. Katya is passionate about research and writing, and has published a number of scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals. Her academic inclination has contributed to her success in court, much of which depends on articulate and well thought out arguments. Katya also understands people and the complexity that relationships bring to a legal dispute. She recognizes that in family and estate law, no two cases look the same, and she enjoys working with clients to find creative legal solutions that meet their needs.
