More about Stephanie Szczesniak
Originally from Halifax, Stephanie received her Bachelor of Arts (Distinc.) majoring in Political Science with a minor in Russian literature from McGill University in 2012. She subsequently attended the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University where she obtained her law degree, graduating on the Dean’s List, in 2015.
Stephanie went on to article for Legal Aid Manitoba where she focused almost exclusively upon family law and child protection (with a bit of criminal law mixed in). She was called to the Bar of Manitoba in June of 2016.
Stephanie was then called to the Bar of Upper Canada in September of 2016 and found a perfect match with Cohen Lyngseth, a firm she was drawn to given Barb Cohen’s strong emphasis on alternative dispute resolution. She is currently a first year associate there and is looking forward to taking on collaborative files now that her training is complete.
