We believe Michelle Graham is everything you’d want in a lawyer. Her clients describe her as patient, kind, knowledgeable, and efficient, and we’d have to agree. We also like having Michelle as part of our team because she loves helping others, and has a great sense of humour. One of the reasons why Michelle is so good with her clients is because she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Calgary. Following that, She completed her Juris Doctor at Bond University in Australia, followed by a year studying at the University of Calgary Faculty of Law, and University of Saskatchewan College of Law. Beyond her university training, Michelle was an active volunteer with CLASSIC; Community Legal Assistance Services for Saskatoon Inner City, providing free, professional and confidential legal services for low-income, marginalized Saskatoon residents.
Michelle received broad exposure to many areas of law while working with the Kahane Law team. In August 2016 Michelle joined SUMMIT LEGAL GROUP so that she could focus exclusively in Real Estate and Estate law. Michelle continues to participate in education programs, and is eager to grow her practice at Summit Legal.
Married with one daughter, Michelle enjoys traveling, design, cooking and the outdoors.
