“My primary focus is wealth preservation and I assist families with estate, trust, and business succession planning.

I also maintain a broad practice in the areas of business law and real estate. Through experience working as an accountant for family-owned businesses and growing up in a family that owns two businesses, I understand the importance of assisting families and business owners in achieving their estate planning and business succession intentions. The planning I implement is aimed at preserving wealth by minimizing your taxes, ensuring your testamentary wishes are carried out, and ensuring the wealth you have worked hard to accumulate stays within your family for future generations. I pride myself on providing clients with quality, cost-effective and timely legal advice.”

Community Involvement, Hobbies, and Personal Interests

I am a new resident of Port Moody and I am happy to work in the community that I now call home.

Before pursuing law, I obtained a Bachelor of Science and Minor in Commerce with distinction at the University of British Columbia. I then went onto receive my Diploma in Accounting at the University of British Columbia where I studied both managerial and financial accounting. After obtaining my law degree and completing my articles at BTM, I honed my legal skills at a downtown law firm where I specialized in planning for high net worth families.

When I am not working, I like to stay active and spend as much time with family and friends as I can. I am an avid hockey fan, and I also enjoy travelling when possible.
