About me

My clients benefit from my experience in aggressively resolving over 1,000 clients' personal injury claims. Some of my clients have received settlements in excess of a million dollars and ALL of my clients, big cases or not, have received my personal attention. 


I go to trial or settle my clients' claims, whichever will best benefit my clients. I am a second-generation personal injury attorney practicing law in Vancouver since 1997. My staff and I are experienced in handling the claims and helping my clients manage the physical and emotional distress from their injuries. I pride myself on assisting my clients to the best of my ability and leaving no stone unturned.


I am married and we have two young boys that keep us  busy when I am not in the office.
