Tsitsi Chiwara

Tsisti Chiwara is an associate within Duncan Craig LLP’s Family Solutions practice group.

Tsitsi received her Bachelor of Commerce in Law (Bcom Law) from Varsity College in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2010. She completed her Bachelor of Laws (LLB) at the University of South Africa in 2017. Tsitsi was called to the Alberta Bar in 2021.

Tsitsi passion is helping clients seek peace of mind for children caught in between the chaos of separation and divorce, and ensuring children are removed as the centre of conflict. She is humbled to be able to be a driver of change by giving a voice to the voiceless. TsiTsi has been involved in matters dealing with child support, custody, parenting time, guardianship, mobility, division of property and spousal and partner support claims, plus collaborative divorce and mediation and arbitration.

Tsitsi has volunteered her time with the Edmonton Community Legal Centre and Assist - Alberta Lawyers’ Assistance Society. Near to her heart and mind though is Empower U - a financial empowerment program combining financial education, one-on-one financial coaching, and matched savings. As a victim of domestic abuse and being disadvantaged financially herself, Tsitsi understands for a family living in poverty, every day is about making tough choices – to pay rent or buy groceries? And having Empower U provide skills, confidence, and access to resources to manage finances in ways that build pathways out of poverty is something far different and creates a future where families can thrive.

Tsitisi’s quote she lives by is “Action is the antidote to despair, and the prescription to success” - Joan Baez. Born and raised in Zimbabwe (fluent in English and Shona), she is a proud single mom raising her two young sons, happily with her parents by her side where she enjoys playing chess and golfing with her dad.
