Merissa Stewart

Lawyer

At the young age of eight years old, Merissa became interested in becoming a lawyer after watching Legally Blonde for the first time. Merissa was captivated by a lawyer’s ability to advocate for clients and was inspired to do the same. After articling with Visionary Law, Merissa continued her work with the firm when she was offered an Associate position at the firm. After her articling and exposure to different types of files, Merissa has gained an interest and experience in complex division of property matters. In dealing with such files and all other files, Merissa considers herself to be a professional problem solver, working with her clients to achieve unique resolution for each client.

When Merissa is not working, she can be found trading her mountains of paperwork for mountain views, while hiking and basking in nature. Merissa’s love for the outdoors has taken her across Canada in pursuit of chasing new trails and views. Throughout her travels, Merissa is always searching for the best local places to eat and can never turn down the opportunity to try new foods.

The visionary with the greatest impact on Merissa is Rachel Carson, because of her ability to persevere and stand against public pressure in the name of what she believed to be just, that being modern environmentalism. Rachel’s ability to resist the mainstream thinking of her generation in order to progress modern environmentalism has long inspired Merissa in her perception and practice of law.
