I have done a lot in my life and bring that to my practice.
Whether it was skippering a sailboat in a race across the North Sea, captaining a varsity rugby team, or any of my different jobs from farming to consulting to table-waiting, I have life experience and exposure to its challenges.
I am a graduate of the University of Waterloo and obtained my law degree from the University of British Columbia.
At both schools, I was heavily involved in campus life, serving on the Inter-Athletic Council of Varsity Athletes at Waterloo and participating in clinical programs, such as the UBC Law Students`Legal Advice Program where I conducted trials and helped clients with a variety of different legal challenges.
In my practice, I offer representation that is objective-oriented while being both compassionate and realistic to my client’s circumstances.
I am an active member of the Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia, serving on the Legal Aid Action Committee and being a regular donor to the Public Affairs Committee. I am also proud to write for the Reasonable Doubt column in the Georgia Straight and a regularly contribute to a legal advice column for the Veterans of Canada.
