“I’ve had the pleasure of retaining Ms. Jaye Rutledge based out of Fort St John and I am beyond thrilled with the services I have received. All correspondence is done in a very efficient and timely manner, and she has always made herself available to me and my children needs. I highly recommend her if you are in northern BC for your family law issues. I wish I could fully articulate how happy I am with her, and every dollar spent on our file is worth it. Whenever I have questions regarding unusual situations Ms. Rutledge responds quickly and if she doesn’t have the answer, she finds it out and will eagerly cite other cases that are relevant to the situation. She has advised me on more than one occasion that certain things are simply not worth the fight or the legal fees associated with it and she absolutely has my full trust.
I highly recommend MacLean law and if ever faced with family law issues in the future will eagerly contact her once again.”

Jaye Rutledge, of our team of Fort St John Family Lawyers, articled with us, and we are delighted she has joined us as a Fort St John and Dawson Creek family law lawyer. Here is what Jaye says of her experience:

A significant motivator for me to article at MacLean Law’s Fort St. John office was to return to my family and home town. I have lived in Fort St. John from grade two until age 21 and am happy to return following the completion of my post-secondary education. Most of my family lives in the Peace River area and I look forward to getting to know the town again. I don’t know many lawyers that pass by both their former elementary and high school on their way to work but I am hopeful I will be able to count myself among those who do. MacLean Law has the benefit of having a local office to serve Fort St. John and surrounding areas like Dawson Creek and Prince George. Our medium to high net worth family law and estate disputes office is staffed by a lawyer, a paralegal, and a receptionist as well as myself and Anastasya. MacLean law has 6 other regional offices across BC and in Calgary and so the Fort St. John office has the benefit of being connected with senior lawyers in Vancouver, Surrey, Kelowna, and Calgary. This mixture of local knowledge and wide reaching experience gives me confidence that we are serving clients to the highest possible standard.

During articling I’ve had experience working in nearly all aspects of family law, including marriage/prenup and separation agreements, parenting issues, child and spousal support, and property division. I have benefited from not only the firm’s knowledge of the law and its applications to client issues, but also the business of law and other non-legal aspects of the practice of family law. I am learning about how the unique circumstances of a family law claim can lead to high conflict situations and how those conflicts permeate both financial affairs and parenting issues. I am confident the work I am completing is tailored to creating effective and efficient solutions in accordance with client’s wishes and their best interests. I am delighted to be a lawyer in the thriving North Peace region.

Here is what a happy client said about Anastasiya’s efforts for her in winning her BC Court of Appeal matter:

Anastasiya Sadovska was appointed as an articled student to my case last minute and gathered case law practically overnight. I was more than pleased with the quality of work she produced, which ultimately assisted in the success of my case.
