Marta joined Quay Law Centre in March 2015. She works with Russell S. Tretiak Q.C. in his family law practice, First Law Corporation. Marta works out of the Kelowna office which is known as Key Law Centre. She is both a barrister and solicitor. Marta attends court at both the Provincial and Supreme Court levels. Aside from managing her own files she assists Russell as a litigation solicitor.

Russell attends court throughout British Columbia. Marta is the contact person for his clients in the Okanagan area. This is a very cost effective approach for clients as family litigation can become a costly process.

Marta was born in Poland and moved to Vancouver as a child. She grew up on the North Shore and attended Capilano College (now University) where she obtained her Associates Degree. She then went on to Simon Fraser University where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Political Science, specifically focused on international relations and comparative politics.

Throughout her studies Marta worked as a legal secretary for the Ministry of Attorney General- Criminal Justice Branch (now Ministry of Justice). It was during this time that she decided to pursue her legal education. She applied to the University of Saskatchewan, was accepted, quit her job and moved out to the prairies to begin her new adventure.

After 3 years of cold Saskatchewan winters Marta decided it was time to move on. Upon graduating with her Juris Doctor Degree she moved to Kelowna to complete her articles and never looked back.

Marta can speak fluent in Polish.
