Karmelle D. Johnston

Family, Real Estate, Wills & Estates Lawyer Cochrane

Karmelle has been practicing law in Cochrane since 2003 and she has witnessed the incredible growth of our small town.  

Karmelle has an undergraduate degree in Human Ecology with a Family Studies Major and as such, appreciates the importance of focusing on the best interests of children and empowering others while dealing with difficult family law journeys.  She strongly believes in efficiently resolving family law issues in the most cost effective manner and firmly holds that the job of a family lawyer is to reduce the stress of her clients and ensure that the most reasonable solutions are applied.  Although Karmelle always focuses on the most cost-efficient and non-adversarial resolutions, she does not shy away from going to court when necessary.

Karmelle is a mother of two active children (a boy with passion for hockey and a girl who is obsessed with dance) and she genuinely loves the community of Cochrane.  Practicing law in Cochrane allows her to prioritize her children and her passion for family law.  Karmelle also has an extensive background in Real Estate, Wills and general Corporate/Commercial law.  Karmelle is originally from Manitoba and she received her call to the Manitoba Bar in 2002.  Karmelle moved to Alberta in 2002 and received her call to the Alberta Bar in 2003 and has been residing in Cochrane since 2003.  Outside of practicing law, Karmelle loves writing, running with her yorkie, boot camp, hot vacations, and wake surfing!

Karmelle looks forward to the opportunity to be of service to you in a compassionate and kind manner with an emphasis on minimizing your costs associated with obtaining help on all your family law matters.
