I came to the Sunshine Coast in 2004, volunteered with the Women’s Centre, and then opened my own Gibsons law practice in 2006. I believe in providing affordable services to support people in managing their own legal affairs as independently as possible.
I am now running my private practice on a part-time basis. The legal areas I can help you with are: wills and estates, future planning such as powers of attorney and representation agreements, cohabitation and separation agreements where both parties have agreed on the terms, and simple divorces. I also help people who want to represent themselves and who need help drafting court documents and understanding court procedure.
I have been teaching courses called “Planning for your Future” (which includes wills, powers of attorney and representation agreements and end of life issues) in Gibsons and Sechelt for many years.
My background in law includes:
- Working as a staff lawyer and Director of Training for the Legal Services Society of BC.
- Running my own private legal practice specializing in family and immigration law.
- Writing two self-help books (on wills and divorce) for Self-Counsel Press.
- Teaching courses and workshops on a variety of legal topics for groups with particular interests: e.g. non-profit organizations, strata councils, seniors, youth, and church groups.
My law practice office is located in lower Gibsons at 287 Gower Point Road – click here for directions. I am only in the office when I have appointments.
