Marian was born and raised in Co. Donegal, Ireland and attended law school in her hometown to obtain a Bachelor of Arts (Honors) degree in law and taxation. During her time in law school, Marian was a strong advocate on student issues, holding both the positions of President of the Student Law Society and President of the Students’ Union. On completing law school, she subsequently pursued two LL.M. degrees at the University of Strathclyde and University of Aberdeen with concentrations on international economics and oil and gas international relations.

In 2014, Marian relocated to Calgary and spent her early years in the practice of criminal defence. In 2017, Marian was welcomed to Rodin Law Firm, anchoring her career firmly in civil litigation, and has a wealth of experience in successfully handling personal injury and medical malpractice matters. Marian is best described by her clients as someone who will work tirelessly on their behalf, yet remains personable and compassionate in her approach.

In her spare time, Marian can be either found exercising, or hiking across the province that she is now proud to call home, in addition to returning home to Ireland to visit family when she is able. Marian is a member of the Calgary Bar Association, the Canadian Bar Association, the Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association, the American College of Trial Lawyers and the Association of Women Lawyers. Marian is dedicated to maintaining and improving the standards of civil litigation and professionalism, and is proud to act as a mentor to many law students/ junior lawyers in the industry.

 
“Thank you for your hard work handling my case, and also your gentle handling of me. I never felt like a number, Candace and yourself were always available to answer questions and often just reassure me. It was a long journey, and it was comforting to know you were looking out for me”
