Simplifying the complicated.
Natalie received her law degree from Dalhousie University in 2007, and throughout law school earned numerous awards including the Law Foundation of Nova Scotia Scholarship, the Henry B. Rude Memorial Prize, the Rosenblum-Dubinsky Prize in Family Law, the Alistair Fraser Scholarship, and also clerked at the Nova Scotia Supreme Court (Family).

Walking you through the process.
After years of successful entrepreneurship in Calgary, Tate moved to Halifax in 2004 and attended Dalhousie Law School. Tate decided to become a lawyer after encountering a series of frustrating and easily avoidable legal pitfalls. Tate felt that he could provide a better option for Calgarians.
Tate went on to work in varied legal environments from Legal Aid and national firms to local offices and private consulting before starting what would later become StoneTree Law. The vision was to curate a midsize firm in a permanent and convenient location, filled with a deep pool of diverse legal talent focused on service. A symbol of legal excellence in the Calgary community that would assist and guide people through the best and worst of all phases of life and business. By virtue of shedding a name, Reeder & Associates became StoneTree Law so that the passage of time, life and death would not change the fact that StoneTree Law would remain a trusted Calgary Law Firm Calgarians can can rely on.
Tate has since retired from active legal practice to focus on a handful of treasured clients and to manage and steward the long term operations and growth of the StoneTree family of businesses.
