Our Inspiration

Inspire Law is rooted in the values instilled in our lead and founding lawyer, Susan Kootnekoff. Susan grew up in Saskatchewan, watching her parents work tirelessly – her mother as a teacher and entrepreneur and her father as a teacher, entrepreneur and union leader — to improve the lives of those around them.

Inspire Law was founded, in part, to honour Susan’s parents’ legacy through hard work, tenacity, and a passionate belief that fairness and justice ought to be accessible to all. At Inspire Law, you will receive the personal touch of a small firm, and the experience gained over decades of practicing law. The name ‘Inspire Law’ stems from a desire to assist clients to bounce back after adverse employment experiences. By empowering our clients, we hope they will be inspired to stand up for their rights and to continually improve upon their ability to respond to similar situations in the future, and for individuals to stand up for their rights.
