About Me

I have for the past twenty-eight years worked with individuals and companies to resolve land use and development issues: sometimes through negotiation; sometimes through litigation; oftentimes through a bit of both. I enjoy my work. I enjoy the challenge of identifying and resolving complex problems or sets of problems. I find negotiating solutions to difficult situations, rewarding. Where negotiation is not the solution, I am up for the fight: after all, it’s what I do.

I provide legal services from both our Kamloops and Vancouver offices. I have:
