Jackie, Handerek & Forester, Long-Term Community Member
A supporter of many local charities, events and sports teams, as well as sponsoring a scholarship at Leduc Composite High School; Jackie, Handerek & Forester has been historically composed of very community-minded people. The three partners have strong community roots in Leduc. John Jackie, B.A., LL.B., Q.C. is a former councilman and mayor of the City of Leduc. David Handerek, B.Sc., LL.B. has practiced here since 1981 and was a very active member of a local service group for many years. Jeff Forester, B. Comm., LL.B., born and raised in Leduc, continues to play as well as coach hockey here.
A Respected Law Firm since 1986
When they first opened their doors, the staff consisted of two support staff. In March 1986, a third position person joined the team as part-time bookkeeper and receptionist.
A Growing Practice, Support Staff & New Partner
In three years, Jackie & Handerek outgrew its first office and in 1989 moved to a newly renovated building on the corner of 48 Street and 50th Avenue in Leduc. To improve efficiency of client services and file management the firm added two support staff and a new associate lawyer in 1993. The firm continued to expand, once again outgrowing its offices; in November 2007, Jackie, Handerek & Forester moved into the new JH&F Professional Centre, where they currently occupy the whole second floor.
At our current location, Jackie, Handerek & Forester continues to serve our clients with associate lawyers. As well we offer opportunities to students-at-law and work-experience students
