I was born and raised in Abbotsford and grew up playing baseball with the Abbotsford Cardinals. With the guidance and support of my local community, I went on to play for various universities in Canada and across the United States. After exhausting that dream with a short professional career, I returned to British Columbia to obtain my Juris Doctor from Thompson Rivers University in 2014. I was called to the British Columbia Bar in 2015.
Since being called, I have developed a strong record in the courtroom running numerous trials in the Supreme Court and regularly appearing before the Court of Appeal. My most notable achievements have come in the areas of personal injury, employment, defamation, commercial law, wills and estates litigation, real estate, and insurance defence law.
My primary focus is to provide value to my local community. Whether this is accomplished by providing practical legal advice in a clear and easy to understand manner or by advocating for clients at trial, I am committed to working with my clients to alleviate stress and dispel any uncertainty regarding the litigation process. My overriding objective is that every client is better off for having retained me.
