David C. Westland

David C. Westland, Bachelor of Fine Arts (University of Calgary), Bachelor of Laws (University of Calgary).

David graduated from the University of Calgary, Faculty of Law, in 2007 and was called to the Alberta Bar in 2008.  He articled under Louise P. Campbell Q.C. and has practiced at Campbell O’Hara in the area of family law since 2007.

David believes that as far as possible it is important for the parties in a family law situation to exhaust all reasonable avenues of cooperative resolution to the issues prior to engaging in adversarial litigation.  This philosophy preserves the parties’ control over the resolution of their issues, and preserves a working relationship that is especially important where continuing contact and goodwill is necessary for the benefit of the children involved.
