Trusted, Experienced Surrey Divorce Lawyers
We have practiced family law exclusively, primarily in Surrey, for over a decade. While law firms can never claim to be experts at law, we have gained a level of expertise that defines us in our field. Since 2008, my staff and I have been arguing Provincial Court family law cases for clients at the Surrey Courthouse and BC Supreme Court family law cases at the New Westminster Courthouse.

Global Advocacy in Surrey and White Rock
Occasionally, we travel to the island, Abbotsford or Vancouver to represent our clients. Sometimes our clients have international family law matters that require witnesses to testify from abroad. On occasion we have argued for family relocation under the Hague Convention. But, our focus is justice in Surrey, and our role as a friend of the court is to inform the judge here in BC of the law and facts of the case. Steady referrals from courthouse staff and other lawyers is gratifying validation that we are doing things right.
Look Us Up
Hiring a lawyer is a big decision. It’s important to find someone who knows the law, and will learn all the details of your case- even if that means eventually deciding to omit details that aren’t relevant or helpful to your case. Time in court is costly! An experienced lawyer who has forged deep knowledge in their area is essential. Some of our cases can be found on Canlii but many more were settled in the hallways. We’ve helped a lot of families re-start their lives.

South Surrey and White Rock – My Old Stomping Grounds
My childhood was spent fishing off the White Rock Pier, riding our bikes to Crescent Beach and wiggling in a desk all day at Sunnyside Elementary (which is gone now). The area of the house I first grew up in is now called Morgan Creek. Riding my bike from there to school everyday, I didn’t imagine myself practicing as a Divorce Lawyer. I would never have guessed that those cow pastures would one day become the contested properties of my clients.
Big City, Small Town
I feel like Surrey and I grew up together, and it’s a pleasure to discover clients I knew years ago. As a teen, I worked for Ocean Park Pizza, doing deliveries until the wee hours in my 1975 AMC Hornet. It’s surprising how often clients figure out that they know me from middle school days at Earl Marriott, or from our days at Semihamoo Highschool, (Go Totems!) I worked for Surrey Parks and Rec throughout high school, and then at White Rock Parks and Rec, running summer programs, so between co-workers and kids, deja vu happens quite often for my clients. That was all before driving the Zamboni at Centennial Arena during college, which is about as close to being “cool” as I ever got.
