Profile: Ruth Olson

Ruth Olson

Ruth earned her Juris Doctorate from Brigham Young University in Utah, and has practiced since 2011 in a variety of areas of law, including tax, litigation, family, wills and estates, and corporate. Ruth did her articles as a Student-at-Law with Maverick Law before venturing to BC to run her own law firm. We are happy to have her re-join the Maverick Law team.

Ruth’s favorite part of practicing law is working with clients, helping them resolve their problems, and trying to make what can sometimes be a confusing, difficult, or distressing legal process, a little easier.

When she’s not practicing law, Ruth can usually be found out-of-doors, hiking, running, and cross-country skiing, or spending quality time with her four kids, her massive dog, and way too many cats.
