The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Michelle Marquette as a judge to the Provincial Court in Wynyard.
“Judge Marquette has practiced law for nearly 20 years, and has a particularly good understanding of the legal issues common in rural Saskatchewan,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said. “Her experience as both a legal professional and a community leader make her an excellent choice for this appointment.”
Judge Marquette graduated with distinction from the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan and was called to the Bar in 1994. Since 2006, she has operated a sole practice, the Marquette Law Office, in Wadena.
During her legal career, Judge Marquette has specialized in the areas of real estate, will and estates, criminal law, family law, corporate law and civil litigation.
Throughout her career, Judge Marquette has been an active member of her community through her children’s activities and local community groups.
Judge Marquette replaces Judge James Plemel, who will become Chief Judge of the Provincial Court of Saskatchewan on January 1, 2015.
