MELISSA J. ERICKSON 

BARRISTER & SOLICITOR 

Education & Experience 

I was born in Calgary, but raised in Manning, Alberta. After I finished high school, I went to Grant MacEwan College (now MacEwan University) and obtained a diploma in Police Studies. I was then accepted into the Forensic Science Honours program at Trent University and spent four years in Peterborough, Ontario. After graduation, I worked in Calgary as a manager for six years. During that time, I also completed an undergraduate certificate in International Management, which included a semester abroad in Lyon, France. I completed my law degree at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC, and then decided to return to Northern Alberta to practice in Grande Prairie.

Personal Bio & Interests 

I have been interested in the law from a very young age. Family Law is something I became specifically interested in during my time at law school. I completed research on behalf of the BC Ministry of Attorney General where I worked closely with a Family lawyer drafting information sheets, written in plain language, on the Federal Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines. I also provided summary advice to family law clients under the supervision of a lawyer at the TRU Community Legal Clinic in Kamloops, BC. Given the emotions that are often involved in such a personal area of law, it is my goal to ensure that all client matters are handled in a way that is both professional and considerate.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, and playing rec sports.
