You must pay taxes.

But there’s no law that says you gotta leave a tip.”

About Me

My name is Lisa Handfield and I’m a lawyer practicing in Calgary, Alberta, in association with Mainwood Legal Services.

As both a lawyer and a Chartered Professional Accountant, I’m uniquely qualified to work on a wide range of legal issues.  More importantly, I enjoy working with individuals to help them solve their problems quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively.  If you’re reading this right now, its probably because you have a legal issue or challenge that you’re looking for help to understand or address.

My background includes over 10 years of experience including working for the Canada Revenue Agency Appeals division, in-house for a large corporation, and working with high-net worth clients of a major bank.  With both a Masters of Law degree and a specialized designation as a Trust and Estate Practitioner, you can trust me to provide a qualified legal opinion on your issue.

Today my practice focuses primarily on corporate law, trust law, estate planning (wills and estates), estate litigation, taxation (including GST) and tax dispute resolution.  When I’m not practicing law and helping solve my clients’ legal challenges, I spend my time with my husband, young daughter and three family dogs.
