Stacy Petriuk was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. She is a partner at JSS Barristers. Her practice focuses on civil, corporate and commercial litigation, including product liability, insurance, serious personal injury, fatality claims and contract litigation. Stacy has a particular expertise in e-discovery and e-trials, having conducted one of the first civil e-trials in Calgary.

In 1991, Stacy obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Studies from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. In 1996, she graduated from the Faculty of Law at the University of Calgary. While at law school, Stacy was active in the mooting program; she won the McGillivray Moot. Stacy was a member of the Gale Cup Moot team and the Corporate Securities Moot team. Upon graduating from law school, she was awarded the Campbell McLaurin Achievement Award, the law school's silver medal. Since graduating, Stacy has coached a University of Calgary Faculty of Law moot team and remained active as a volunteer judge for the mooting program.

Stacy articled at a major Calgary law firm. During her articles, she gained exposure to almost every area of practice. This helped her focus on her true passion: civil litigation.

After being called to the Alberta Bar in 1997, Stacy joined JSS Barristers as their first associate. Since joining the firm, Stacy has appeared at every level of the Alberta courts, and has conducted and assisted with numerous trials and appeals.

In 2000, Stacy took a one year leave of absence from the firm to pursue her Master of Law at the University of Cambridge, England. Stacy was awarded the Viscount Bennett Scholarship and the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Bursary. At Cambridge, she studied international public law, international private law, international commercial litigation and insurance law. She is a Fellow of the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust.

Stacy serves on the Board of Directors of the Calgary Arts Development. She is a frequent speaker at continuing legal education seminars.

Stacy is married and has one daughter.
