What is your role at Pathway Legal?
I am a lawyer at Pathway Legal. My
role is to help clients through a most difficult time in the least stressful way
What is your favourite kind of animal and what makes it your favourite?
My favourite animal is the flying
squirrel. We have one that lives near our house, and it often swoops onto our
deck in the evenings. It brings my kids—and me!—endless joy to watch it float
down and feed outside while we’re eating dinner.
What should clients look for in a lawyer or law firm?
should look for a lawyer and law firm where they will feel listened to and
understood, where their legal problem is seen as a something to solve and not a
path to riches, and where the client’s ultimate goal is kept always in mind.
What are your interests outside law?
I’m not working, most of my time is spent with my wife and kids, and we try to
get out in nature and take advantage of British Columbia’s endless beauty. I
also love to travel internationally when possible. Prior to becoming a lawyer,
I completed a PhD, so when I have a spare minute I try to keep myself up to
date with academic reading in my field.
What differentiates you from other lawyers?
like any field, there are many different types of lawyers. I do my best to listen
well to clients’ concerns and goals, and try to keep them included on
everything I do on their behalf.
What attracted you to Pathway Legal?
the biggest thing is that the values of Pathway fit with my own, and fit with
how I want to practice law. I strive to be authentic and down to earth, and that
is what Pathway offers.
