Taylor & Company


Yuri Shapoval



Yuri grew up in the lower mainland of British Columbia. After he obtained his undergraduate degree from Simon Fraser University in 2008, Yuri worked briefly in the non-profit sector before he started studying law at the University of Alberta. Upon obtaining his law degree in 2013, Yuri moved to Grande Prairie. Yuri now calls Grande Prairie home, and considers himself lucky to be building his practice in Northern Alberta.

Before Yuri joined Taylor & Company in January 2017, he was called to the bar in  Alberta in July 2014. Since then, he has appeared before all levels of court in Alberta and before administrative tribunals. Yuri practices in the areas of litigation, family law, real estate, and wills and estate administration. To Yuri, there is nothing more fascinating than a complex legal question.

Yuri’s personal interests include fitness, reading, mountain biking, and cinema. He also enjoys a dram of good whisky and regularly attends tastings around northern Alberta. Yuri often volunteers with Grande Prairie Legal Guidance and provides pro bono legal services to low income individuals.
