MAIA TOMLJANOVIC, Calgary Professional Negligence, Medical Malpractice, and Personal Injury Lawyer

Maia received her Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business in 2008 and her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2012. Maia joined Cuming & Gillespie LLP as an articling student in 2012 and was named Partner in June 2020.

Maia’s practice focuses on medical malpractice, personal injury and professional negligence actions. In all areas, she acts exclusively for injured parties and their families, not for insurers.

Maia has appeared before various levels of Court in both Alberta and Saskatchewan. Having worked as a Judicial Clerk in the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta prior to her law career, Maia has invaluable knowledge of the inner workings of our court system. Through her practice, Maia has also garnered significant alternate dispute resolution experience, having participated in hundreds of private mediations and Judicial Dispute Resolution conferences.

Maia is passionate about her work and does not take lightly the responsibility of acting for individuals who have suffered injury through someone else’s negligence. She is extremely approachable with all of her clients and is very involved in ensuring Albertan’s rights are protected, both through her practice and through her work with the Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association.

Volunteer/Pro Bono

Throughout her career, Maia has been committed to giving back to the community through volunteering with the Legal Education Society of Alberta, acting as a CPLED coach to new articling students, and sitting on the Executive of the CBA Health Law South Section and Board of the Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association (ACTLA). Maia has also presented at ACTLA’s continuing legal education seminars, presented at the Western Canadian Medical Malpractice Conference and guest lectured for the University of Calgary Faculty of Law in health law. She has chaired the ACTLA Women’s Legal Forum Gala on two occasions, helping raise over $60,000 for the Calgary Drug Treatment Court and over $40,000 for The Women’s Centre. In addition, like all of the lawyers at Cuming & Gillespie LLP, Maia is committed to providing pro bono legal services through her practice.

Outside the office, Maia enjoys travelling, exercising on an as needed basis and, alongside her husband, trying to keep up with her son.

“We retained Maia Tomljanovic to represent my wife in her personal injury claim. She was extremely professional and responsive. I feel confident that she is the reason my wife recovered as well as she did and received compensation way above what we were told by others that she was entitled to. I would not hesitate to recommend Maia to anyone in need of a good lawyer.”
