Jordan Achtymichuk



Jordan Achtymichuk is an associate with Duncan Craig LLP practicing in wills and estates litigation, estate planning and administration, insurance defence, and contractual disputes. His focus is in legal research and getting to the heart of the issues to determine a practical and cost-effective approach for his clients to resolve their legal issues. His goal is to ensure that his clients have a strong understanding of the law as it applies to the facts of their case before making important legal decisions by providing a strong legal foundation to advise them whenever possible.

In Jordan's Own Words:

"My work involves challenging and defending wills, and bringing applications for guardianship and trusteeship to put supports in place for individuals who no longer have the capacity to make decisions for themselves. When I meet my clients, they are often confused, stressed and overwhelmed by the thought of litigation. Often, they have recently lost a loved one, or want to help someone who is no longer able to help themselves because they have lost capacity. My favourite part of my job is the process of talking to my clients and narrowing the real issues, providing research to advise them of their rights, and helping them put a practical plan into action."

He graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology (with Distinction) in 2014 and obtained his Juris Doctor (with Distinction) in June of 2020. Jordan was called to the Alberta Bar in 2021.

As a student Jordan participated various extracurriculars which included acting, writing and directing in Law Show, and was part of the Special Projects Committee for the Alberta Law Review.

Jordan first began working at Duncan Craig as a summer student during law school and worked at the Workers Compensation Board following his second year. Jordan also completed part of his articles with the Court of King’s Bench, where he had the unique opportunity and experience of working closely with Justices, observe a wide array of court proceedings, and hone his research and writing skills.

In his spare time, Jordan enjoys his pets (dog Callie, cat Koda, and ball python JD), listening to audio books, playing video games and board games, and miniature painting.
