About Me


When disputes arise, even simple matters can quickly become complex and potentially even more difficult to resolve as time goes on.  I work hard to make sure your legal dispute is resolved quickly and with the best possible outcomes.

Not knowing your legal rights and obligations, and/or a lack of Profile photograph of Calgary family lawyer Brent Hemingtonunderstanding of the frameworks involved in resolving legal disputes, can easily make matters overwhelming. A timely, reasoned, and informed approach to conflict resolution is something that everyone deserves.

My name is Brent Hemington and I am a seasoned professional with a strong sense of compassion who takes a common-sense approach to dispute resolution.

Building trust with my clients is a key imperative for me – as is respectful communication. I represent individuals and parties in disputes that range from comparatively simple issues to the most complex of legal disagreements. I work closely with clients to ensure that their best interests are always fully represented.

I will help you navigate your way through the complexities of law with practical guidance and sound advice. My breadth of litigation experience and depth of legal knowledge lends me a keen understanding of your needs in what is often a stressful and difficult time.

I am committed to achieving the most successful and effective solutions for your legal issues.

Passions, Performances, and Dime Store Philosophies


The proud father of two children, I delight in the pleasure and the pain of parenting.


My very brief career with Cirque du Soleil, and even briefer career as a model, was wildly applauded within my family.  While I was not entirely convinced of their sincerity, I choose to continue accepting the face value of their words.

Dime Store Philosophies:

“”The ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory or defeat but in the perfection of the character of its participants.” As teacher and student of the martial arts, I try to live by these words.

“Have the wisdom to know what is right and the courage to do what is right” – a constant challenge in life.

“Engage in random acts of kindness” – if love does not make the world go around then maybe kindness does.

“Try to find the truth in whatever anyone tells you” – not all truths are self evident. Work hard to understand others.

“If you cannot change reality then change your perception of reality” – the secret of maturity.

“The secret of life is measured by the intensity in which you enjoy the relationships around you” – life is short, live to love.
