Brenda Yu - Criminal Law Paralegal

Hello there, my name is Brenda and I am a licensed paralegal here at Aitken Robertson. Today, I assist Mr. Justin Marchand on a daily basis and also provide legal advice within the scope of my abilities. Additionally, I also serve as the firm’s IT Director and am responsible for the improvement of our management software.

My law journey actually began 15 years ago. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in science from Capital (Beijing) University of Economics and Trade, I began working in business administration which already gave me an analytical and organizational mindset.

Once I moved to Canada, my experience in real estate, family law and civil litigation in Toronto convinced me to further study law. Soon, my deep interest in Canadian criminal law and my persistent efforts brought my dream to fruition. I eventually received both paralegal and law clerk diplomas, and became a licenced paralegal in 2011. I later joined the Aitken Robertson team after I graduated. I had also done my paralegal co-op placement here with Mr. Richard Aitken.

Outside of work when I’m not working as Justin’s principal assistant, I really enjoy gardening and home spending time with my dog, Pepper. If you would like to contact me or the firm, call us toll-free at 1-800-668-1657, or fill in a form online to book a free 30-minute consultation today.

Brenda Yu is a paralegal and is licensed by the Law Society of Ontario.
