Michael Lazaruk was born and raised in Edmonton, a city he is very proud to call home.
Michael attended the University of Alberta where he completed a Bachelor of Arts (with distinction) majoring in sociology. After graduating he worked in the field of market research where he attained the position Senior Consultant at a distinguished Edmonton-based marketing firm before leaving in search of new challenges.
With a desire to pursue his life-long interest in law, Michael again attended the University of Alberta, this time for law school. He graduated from the Faculty of Law with a Bachelor of Laws degree.
Upon graduation, Michael joined the Edmonton offices of a prominent national law firm where he completed his articles. After being called to the Alberta Bar, he stayed on at the firm as an associate, practicing general litigation with a particular interest in Plaintiff Personal Injury law, Employment law, Insurance litigation, and Commercial litigation.
Wanting to further pursue his passion for Injury Litigation, Michael moved on to begin a practice focused solely on Plaintiff Personal Injury at a highly-regarded, Alberta-based firm specializing in the area.
With great pride in 2010, Michael opened Lazaruk Law to help clients with a variety of legal needs from real estate to general practice, while continuing to serve clientele in need of an Edmonton-based personal injury lawyer. Michael also pursued his particular interest in family law, taking specialized training in collaborative family law and family law mediation.
Michael’s office is conveniently located in Edmonton Ellerslie. Free parking for clients.
During his free time, Michael tries his best to keep up with his two young sons. He has a love/hate relationship with the game of golf, enjoys playing racquetball, and remains a diehard Oilers fan.
Michael has a strong sense of community and a passion for his local roots and brings that same passion and devotion to the work he does for his clients and their legal matters.
