An experienced trial lawyer, Edmonton-born Marilyn Burns was described by a client as "velvet over steel" and by the Calgary Sun as a "bundle of verve and veracity." The Calgary Herald called Marilyn "a sincere, committed-to-the-cause woman; a single mom who waited until her four kids were older before studying to become a lawyer."
Before earning her law degree at the University of Calgary, Marilyn began undergraduate studies by correspondence at Athabasca University, making ends meet delivering newspapers in the early morning hours so she could stay home with her children.
Ms. Burns has continued the firm's proud tradition of political activism, finishing second in the 2005 Alberta Alliance leadership race and co-founding (with Link Byfield and Rob James) Alberta’s Wildrose Party in 2007.
