Jennifer Cragg - JD LawJENNIFER L. CRAGG

(J.D. LL.B. MBA)

I was raised in the small town of Strathmore, Alberta.

When I am not pursing my passion in Real Estate Law, I keep busy playing and watching hockey. I play several times a week during the regular season and travel to numerous tournaments throughout Alberta and British Columbia. Jason, my husband, and I are both season ticket holders for the Red Deer Rebels and have the common goal of seeing a game in every WHL building. So far we have watched a game in 13 of the 22 buildings. In the off-season I have played softball and continue to play ball hockey. Before starting in hockey I also competitively figure skated for five years.

After graduating from high school I went on to attend the University of Lethbridge where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Economics. I spent a lot of time in Lethbridge playing and watching hockey. I was fortunate enough to meet my future husband, Jason Cragg, when we were assigned to the same university recreational ice hockey and floor hockey team.

Next, I moved on to the University of Calgary where I received my Bachelor of Laws degree. I worked for the City of Calgary for three years during that same period of time. I was a dedicated season ticket holder for the Calgary Hitmen and loved to travel to away games and play hockey with the Junior Hockey Junkies gang.

After law school Jason and I knew we wanted to relocate to a smaller city and Red Deer was our first choice. We moved to Red Deer in 2009 and I immediately started working at a Law Firm in Red Deer. My primary practice area is Real Estate with some of my practice dedicated to Corporate Law and assisting clients with their Wills and Estates. I have also gained valuable knowledge in the field of Municipal Law when I worked as one of the solicitors for the City of Red Deer. My experience with Municipal Law has carried over to my Real Estate practice, particularly with respect to secondary suites, development permits, real property reports and municipal compliance.

On February 5, 2013, I left the law firm I was at and started my own practice under the name JD Law – Association of Independent Legal Practices

I currently sit on the Board of Directors for COSMOS as Vice President and am a member of Ducks Unlimited Canada

Mr. Nulliah is very straight-forward and honest. Seal and his team work, research, and diligently prepare which allows him to be very aggressive in negotiation and also in the courtroom. His straight-forward approach allows for options other than standing in front of a Judge, which helps save both time and money. 

 Seal is confident and strives for a fair outcome for all parties involved all while doing his best to educate and create open lines of communication.

Seal continues to impress me with his knowledge and experience and I am extremely happy with the outcome of my case thus far. For anyone looking for family law representation, I would recommend that you hire Seal before your Ex does! - Mike B

Mr. Nulliah is extremely efficient and knowledgeable. He is full of resources, and if he cannot help you personally he will guide you in the direction of someone who can. He is straight-forward and will speak to you with confidence regardless of the outcome. I highly recommend  Seal. - Anonymous
