Lorie has a general practice with a focus on family law. She was born and raised in rural Saskatchewan and continues to operate a family farm near Melville with her husband, Anthony, and two children.
Lorie attended law school at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In 2000, she articled under Kevin J. Bell of Melville, Saskatchewan and worked as an associate with Bell, Kreklewich & Company until 2011, when she became partners with Kevin J. Bell and David G. Kreklewich. She obtained her distinction as a collaborative law lawyer in 2005 and practices collaborative law in the area of family law.
Collaborative law is an alternative process to resolve disputes without having to go to court. Under the advice of a lawyer, all parties and their lawyers sign a contract agreeing not to go to court and instead work together in meetings to resolve their conflict. This process is used in disputes such as divorce, wills and estates, and business disagreements.
Lorie is very family oriented. In her free time, she enjoys camping with her family, gardening and horseback riding.
