Kiran Benipal


Kiran was born and raised in England, UK. She completed her Law LLB at the University of Nottingham, UK and then went on to complete the Legal Practice course, a postgraduate program, at the University of Law in Birmingham, UK. 

Kiran moved to Calgary from England in March 2010. Upon completing her National Committee on Accreditation Exams in the summer of 2010, she commenced her articles in November 2010 and was called to the Alberta bar in December 2011. 

Kiran was particularly passionate about family law having completed her articles. As a result, she proceeded to open her own law practice as a sole practitioner. During this time, she practiced primarily in family law but also in real estate, criminal and wills and estates. This background has built a great basis for her in addressing various aspects of family law that are often intertwined with other areas of law.

In 2013, Kiran merged with another firm in Calgary as the sole family law lawyer.

In 2015, while actively practising family law she was successful in obtaining a position as a Federal Crown Agent with the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC).  Kiran assisted the PPSC as a Federal Crown Agent in the prosecution of Controlled Drugs and Substances Act charges in the Drumheller jurisdiction while continuing with her family practice.

Kiran has appeared in the Alberta Court of Justice and Court of King’s Bench in relation to both family and criminal matters. Kiran is accustomed to court processes. She aims to reduce conflict and resolve matters in an amicable and cost-effective manner wherever possible.

Kiran is familiar with all aspects of separation and divorce; she is passionate about family law and thoroughly enjoys assisting clients through what can be a stressful and challenging time.

Kiran is also able to provide estate planning services which includes the preparation of a will, power of attorney and personal directive documentation.

In 2020, Kiran participated in the review and development of family law materials for the virtual law firm for the Practice Readiness Education Program (PREP) course - the bar admission program in Alberta, which is now required to be completed by law students. She also participates regularly as Capstone assessor for the Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED), which is the final evaluation for law students to determine whether they have competed the PREP course.

In any available time, she can be found in the gym or spending time with her husband and three young children. Kiran is of an east Indian background and can read, write and fluently speak Punjabi and is therefore able to provide legal services in Punjabi.
