Kristin Yarish is a solicitor helping Alberta-based clients with wills, estate planning, residential and commercial real estate transactions and corporate law. Her clients include individuals and businesses.

She helps to position her clients for success by providing strategic counsel and preventative planning, and views planning as an investment in her clients’ future. 

A former elementary school teacher (London, Korea, Lethbridge, and Calgary), Kristin’s background in education allows her to clearly inform her clients about what they are committing to when they’re signing documents.

As expensive lawsuits can have a stressful impact on any individual or business, Kristin works to help identify and mitigate risks, in order to prevent vulnerabilities that could lead to future litigation. 

Kristin’s practice includes:

  • Residential and commercial real estate 
  • Wills, estates and trusts
  • Business law (transactional and corporate)

Value to Clients

“When I am helping someone with wills and estate planning, I feel like I am an ambassador helping them express their wishes. By proactively planning with clients, I am also able to alleviate the stress on their loved ones in the future. I can help provide peace of mind and eliminate the ‘What ifs.’”

Outside the Office

When she is not at work, Kristin is a culinary artisan with a passion for cake decorating. She also has a love of travel and is on the Board of Governors for the Parks Foundation, an organization that benefits all Calgarians who enjoy green space for recreation and amateur sports in the city.
