Lucas grew up on a farm south of Assiniboia, Saskatchewan. He then received a degree in Sport Management from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During his time at Drexel, Lucas played a significant part in assisting Dr. Ellen Staurowsky with the College Athletes Rights and Empowerment Conference.

In 2020, Lucas graduated from the University of Saskatchewan College of Law. He was awarded the Eldon Woolliams Scholarship for academic achievement. In his third year of law school, Lucas competed in the prestigious Gale Moot Cup.

Lucas then articled at WWOB and upon being called to the bar in 2021, joined the firm as an associate.

Lucas has appeared on matters in front of the Saskatchewan Municipal Board, the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada, and has conducted trials at both the Provincial Court and King’s Bench Court. Outside of court, Lucas also travels to both of our satellite offices in Grenfell and Assiniboia.

Beyond his practice, Lucas is involved in numerous other organizations. He is a member of the Saskatchewan Trial Lawyers Association, the Sports Lawyers Association, and is a member of the Governance Committee for the Saskatchewan Soccer Association. He and firm partner Sean Watson are sessional lecturers at the University of Regina.

In his time away from the firm, Lucas enjoys spending time with his wife, son, and three dogs.
