Allie Cuperfain<

Alexandra (Allie) Cuperfain joined Arkin Furrow Estate Law as an associate in 2024. Her practice includes all forms of disputes associated with estates, wills, powers of attorney, capacity, guardianships and trusts. Prior to joining the firm, Allie worked at a midsize full-service firm practicing a combination of applications for guardianships of incapable persons, family law, health law and fertility law.

Having previously practiced family law, Allie is well suited to advise clients on issues that intersect estate and family law. Allie’s approach to legal strategy is to first attempt to resolve matters outside of lengthy and expensive court battles. When court is the only option, Allie will fiercely advocate for her clients throughout the litigation process.

Allie received her Juris Doctor (cum laude) from the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law – Common Law in 2020. During law school, Allie worked as a research assistant on projects that focused on organ donations, surrogacy law and fertility clinic regulations. She also assisted with researching and editing the third edition of a prominent family law textbook and worked on multiple research projects for several professors. Allie also worked as a writing leader in the Faculty’s Legal Writing Academy during her second and third years of study. Allie did an internship at The Ottawa Hospital in the General Counsel’s Office. She also worked in the General Counsel’s Office at the Ontario Securities Commission as a summer law student.

In addition to her law degree, Allie received an Honours Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto with High Distinction and a Master of Professional Communication from Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly known as Ryerson University). Allie was awarded multiple scholarships and awards while pursuing both of these degrees. Her Masters research examined identity construction and its impact on stakeholder communications. Prior to attending law school, Allie worked in the field of communications at the Ontario Securities Commission, where she led and collaborated on internal communications and external stakeholder outreach initiatives.

Outside of work, Allie enjoys spending time with friends and family, discovering new coffee shops in the city, traveling, seeing theatre, reading and dancing.
