Discover 97th Street Law’s Edmonton Legal Services

97th Street Law was founded to provide quality legal services to Edmonton area clients, particularly those resident on Edmonton’s north side. The law office of Larry Sitko had been serving these clients from its location at 129 Avenue and 97 Street since 1974. When Larry retired in June 2017, Mark DeMong and 97th Street Law took over.
