Long before entering the legal profession, Toronto employment lawyer Kathryn Marshall was passionate about advocacy.
“I was definitely one of those students who were out there leading a group, causing a stink about something,” she says. “I’ve always been interested in pushing issues and helping to change laws.”
Marshall tells AdvocateDaily.com that her profession, as well as her current practice area, provide the perfect outlet for her desire “to make a positive difference in people’s lives.”
“Employment law is an area that affects pretty much everybody. Work is a huge part of a person’s identity,” she says. “If you don’t have challenges with a job or issues with a boss, then you certainly know someone who does.”
Marshall’s desire to make a difference for her clients aligns perfectly with firm’s philosophy, says Natalie MacDonald, founder and principal of MacDonald & Associates.
“This is the very foundation of our firm’s culture and I’m thrilled to have Kathryn as part of our growing team,” she says.
