She has appeared before all levels of court in British Columbia, and has lectured numerous times on issues of family, estate and trust law.
Her philosophy is to encourage settlement whenever possible, and to minimize cost and stress for her clients. She will not hesitate to take matters to trial if she deems it necessary and in the best interests of her clients.
