Our History: Why It Matters
As a firm run by a family of lawyers, we believe we offer something different than you will find at an ordinary firm. This different way of practicing started with Mark Gruman, who is still the driving force behind how we operate. It continues with Jaimie Gruman and Jordan Gruman, who were raised around the law and who understand the importance of serving our clients loyally and fairly.
All three of our lawyers have had opportunities to practice at different and bigger firms. We have all chosen to practice together because of the trust we have in each other and in what our firm offers to our clients.

Sitting Justice of the Peace, Alberta - 1995 - 2008
Mark has been practicing law in Calgary for more than 30 years. In that time, he has successfully represented clients in a vast array of matters in all areas of the legal system. Mark also took time from his busy practice to serve his community as a Justice of the Peace, presiding over bylaw enforcement, traffic, and other Court matters.
Presently, Mark has begun to oversee the general operation of the firm, with the majority of his practice focusing on real estate conveyancing, wills and estates, and some general litigation matters, while continuing to offer his support and broad ranging legal expertise to the rest of the firm.
Mark is an avid golfer and enjoys escaping the rigors of his busy practice in Canmore, Alberta, with his wife as well as spending time with his young grandchildren.
