Jessie Legaree

BA, MA, JD

Partner/Head of Litigation

Jessie practices civil litigation and loves the variety that it brings, while she has a focus on labour and employment law, human rights claims, estate litigation and personal injury.

Jessie is a member of the Executive Committee for the Trial Lawyers Association of BC (TLABC) and chairs its Political Outreach Committee and New Lawyers Planning Committee. She is also the author of the Legislative Watch, a regular article on new legislation, for the Verdict magazine. She is a member of the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of BC & Yukon (CPHR) and the Fraser Valley Bar Association. Her background also includes serving on the Board of Directors for Christian Legal Fellowship and she is a current and past director of several political associations.

Jessie is the first person in her family to go to university. The overachiever she is, she went on to complete three degrees: a Bachelor of Arts in Political Studies with a concentration in Philosophy at Trinity Western University (TWU); a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Humanities also at TWU; and a Juris Doctor at the University of Toronto, after spending her final year on exchange at the University of British Columbia. Throughout her schooling, she worked in insurance for several years and was involved in politics, working at the Prime Minister’s Office in Ottawa and for a local Member of Parliament.

Jessie joined RDM as an articling student in 2015 and has built her career as a lawyer with us ever since. She joined our leadership team and became a partner in 2021 and now is Head of Litigation.

Jessie has always been an active member of the community, volunteering her time in politics and through her church, and she has been nationally recognized for her leadership. Jessie loves to travel and plans to one day cruise the world, yet also needs to take Gravol just to look at Google Maps. She is also content on land so long as accompanied by her cats and Kindle.

Fees: 

Jessie’s hourly rate is currently $475, while some of her work is billed through contingency fee agreements.
