Education: University of Victoria
Legal Assistant: Jamie Gough

I was called to the bar in British Columbia in 2012 and have practiced almost entirely in downtown Vancouver ever since. My practice centers on divorce and family law with a strong focus on negotiating out-of-court settlements for higher net worth individuals and families.

Prior to rejoining Hart Legal, I spent time practicing within the wealth preservation and estate planning department of a prominent Vancouver law firm. This provided me with valuable experience and connections to draw upon when disentangling a variety of asset types in the context of a separation/divorce. I also prepare customized cohabitation and marriage agreements to protect family assets prior to and during a marriage.

While I strongly prefer to resolve matters for my clients quickly and quietly, I am a capable litigator and appear regularly in Supreme and Provincial Court. Settlement often occurs after a lawsuit has begun, and much of the advice I provide to my clients involves educating them on the variety of processes available to them at different stages in the proceedings. Even after a matter ends up in court, it is usually possible to defuse a situation and come to a fair settlement by way of negotiation or mediation.

In my spare time, I enjoy adventuring with my dog, Rupert, in the great outdoors and traveling with friends.
