Devin was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 2017 and was called to the Bar in Alberta in 2020. Born and raised in Calgary, Devin has spent the past 13 years working and studying in England, Ireland, South Korea, and Montreal.

Foster, Q.C and all there is to know about personal injury law from Stephen B. Nelson. During his articling year Devin successfully defended clients charged with criminal offences in Provincial Court, and assisted numerous clients get financial compensation for injuries sustained from slip and falls, motor vehicle accidents, and other injuries that were caused by the negligence of a person and / or a corporation. Devin is on the Alberta Legal Aid list of lawyers and frequently appears for clients in criminal and family law courts.

Working alongside the lawyers of Nelson & Nelson, Devin now intends to build a law practice that serves the people of Alberta.
