NATHAN E. G. HAYES-FRY,
DIVORCE & FAMILY LAWYER/PARTNER
I grew up in Saskatchewan and completed my Juris Doctor at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon where I met my wife. I’ve lived in Grande Prairie and practiced family law exclusively since completing law school. I am passionate about settlement and negotiation-based resolutions and this is my practice focus. While confident in appearing before the Court, I see this as a last resort when all other avenues have been explored.
I am a past Swan City Rotary member, a longtime volunteer for Grande Prairie Legal Guidance and I regularly put on free Divorce & Separation seminars across the Peace Country.
At home you can find me watching documentaries with my wife and three cats or getting my sweat on in the gym.
LEAH M. HAYES-FRY,
REAL ESTATE LAWYER/PARTNER
I’m an Alberta girl born and raised. I have always had a passion for business and completed a Diploma at NAIT in Entrepreneurship and Innovation. From there, I completed my Bachelor of Management and finally my Juris Doctor which led me to this wonderful life in Grande Prairie!
Real Estate is what I love, and Real Estate is what I do best. I personally meet with all of my clients and am available for questions anytime. If I’m not educating you, I’m not doing my job. When we started our practice, it was my goal to do Real Estate different and I like to think that I’ve met and exceeded that goal. Nothing makes my day more than a happy client who has left our office feeling a little more knowledgeable and a little more confident in their major transaction.
I am a past board member of the Grande Prairie SPCA and the Legal Archives Society of Alberta.
If I’m not in the office you’ll find me curled up with a book at home with my three kitties, watching netflix with my husband, doing yoga, or out shopping for home décor.

I grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at the University of Regina in 2014. Following graduation, I worked in construction for one year prior to being accepted to the University of Saskatchewan, College of Law in 2015 where I graduated with my Juris Doctor degree in 2018.
As a Lawyer, I am particularly excited about the challenges I face each day. Each new challenge presents a learning opportunity that allows me to develop my legal knowledge and expertise. Most importantly, my position allows me to resolve complex legal problems on a day to day basis.
While it is not always the case, some clients are experiencing the most challenging moments of their lives when they come to Hayes Fry Law. The most positive impact I can have on a client is to get them through these challenges.
Hayes Fry Law provides me with the opportunity to learn and work in a friendly, welcoming environment. I enjoy the fast-paced nature of Hayes Fry Law, but also appreciate the flexibility the firm allows. At Hayes Fry Law, I practice in Family Law and Estate Planning.
During my free time, I enjoy spending time fishing, playing guitar, or learning how to pilot small aircrafts. I especially enjoy the outdoors and often travel to Northern Saskatchewan each year to fish the northern lakes.

With over 8 years of experience in the legal industry, I’m happy to work with clients, mortgage professionals, realtors, and others in the real estate industry.

When I am not in the office, I can be found spending time with my wonderful family and friends, driving to watch hockey and perfecting the art of retail therapy. Being active is a very large part of my life - I am part of the Steering Committee and Masters swim team that allows me to compete on a Provincial and National level. My other passion is running and I've been very lucky to run along side my father and lifelong coach – in 2018 I was fortunate enough to travel to Las Vegas, NV for his 65th birthday and my first of many half marathons.
I am constantly dreaming up the next idea and always striving for the next challenge !
