Tell us about yourself
I am called to the Bar of British Columbia as well as the High Court of New Zealand. Presently I practice exclusively in Canada, focusing primarily in family law, although I do continue to accept criminal defense instructions. In respect of family, I am familiar with all facets ranging from the allocation of parenting time and responsibilities, analysis of support obligations as appropriate, and division of property. I am experienced at drafting agreements, engaging in alternative dispute resolution processes, and litigation. I am also cultivating an estate practice.
Why should clients hire you?
I am effective in analyzing and communicating complex legal and factual concepts. I approach my instructions with common sense both in the confines of my office as well as in the courtroom when this is necessary. My level of professionalism inspires confidence in my clients who might otherwise be pressured to make rash decisions particularly in the course of life changing events involving their primary assets, the loss of their partners, with serious potential impact upon their children.
I am also now available to help clients with their personal injury files. Please contact HART Legal for a free consultation. I can help with ICBC claims and other injuries.
What is important to you?
I am passionate about securing efficient resolution of my clients’ matters in a manner which redresses, or reduces the stress inherent to dissolution of relationships whether involving litigation or otherwise.
What do you do for fun?
In my spare time I practice yoga, play piano and enjoy the company of my friends and family.
