The main principal of the firm is Mark E. Feehan, Barrister and Solicitor. Mark has been a practising lawyer in Edmonton since 1982, having taken his undergraduate degrees at the Universities of Alberta (Edmonton) and Lethbridge from 1974 to 1978, and then a law degree at the University of Alberta at Edmonton from 1978 to 1981. He started out under the tutelage of his father, F.M (Ned) Feehan Q.C., who practised law for 35 years in Edmonton until his passing in 1986.
For the first 10 or so years of law practise, Mark did a wide variety of different kinds of law, gaining varied and valuable experience in family law, criminal law, real estate, wills and estates, and of course civil litigation, including injury and insurance cases. During this time Mark successfully argued cases in the Alberta Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. After about 10 years, Mark began to prefer the area of personal injury and disability claims, and now states these to be his areas of "special interest". (While lawyers in Alberta are not permitted to declare themselves "specialists" in any given area of law, they are allowed to voluntarily narrow their preferred areas and thus become specialized in practise).
Mark E. Feehan has competently handled several thousand personal injury cases of all sizes and types since 1982, from minor claims through to moderate injuries, and up to major spinal injuries, brain injuries and fatality claims. Mark treats each client with deference, realizing that each claimant has a need to have his legal matter dealt with competently and expeditiously, whether large or small. Mark aggressively pursues proper compensation for each injury claim, at the same time appreciating that each client has individual needs and desires.
Mark is prepared to spend the time with his clients to ensure that they understand the background considerations when important decisions must be made, including that most important decision of all, whether to accept a settlement offer. Mark Feehan feels that it is very important that his clients understand their claim and all its components, so that when they do decide to compromise they will know what they are insisting upon, and what they are giving up.
