Located on the 14th floor of an office tower on Pender and Howe in downtown Vancouver, we do not get "walk-in" clientele. All of our clients are referrals -from Clients, Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Financial Institutions and other law firms.




Our primary legal focus is YOUR HOME.

Be it a house, condominium, leasehold strata unit, townhouse or resort property, your home is not only your castle, it is often your major financial asset. Therefore every contract, mortgage or other financial obligation affecting your home has to be done right every time.


We strive to make buying, selling or re-financing your home as easy, convenient and secure as possible.
