Valerie joined Onyx Law Group as an associate counsel in 2023.  Called to the BC bar in 2011, she brings with her over a decade of experience in wills, estates and trust litigation matters in BC, including the validity of wills and “will-like” documents; will variation claims; trust claims, unjust enrichment, and the beneficial (“true”) ownership of property.  Although her focus is on litigation, Valerie is also very familiar with the probate application and administration processes.  As a former legal assistant and course instructor, she understands not only the high-level strategy of a file but also the nuts and bolts of court procedure and behind-the-scenes work required to manage and resolve client matters efficiently and effectively. Valerie appreciates that navigating an unfamiliar and complex court system can be daunting and makes time to explain legal concepts and procedures to support clients throughout the process.

Prior to her legal work, Valerie studied anthropology.  She completed her master’s degree in 2007 in cultural medical anthropology.  Her studies focussed on how culture (and cultural changes over time) influence how we explain and define “illness” and “health”.

Originally from New Brunswick, Valerie and her husband made Vancouver their home in 2008. Outside of the office, Valerie is a mom of two young boys and a Zumba and running enthusiast.

  • We were made to feel valued and heard. Integrity, competence and a passion for justice definitely describes Onyx. They are also caring, compassionate and have a good sense of humour.

  • Thanks to Onyx’s straightforward approach, this litigation was resolved with the best outcome for myself and my children. Although this ordeal was emotionally trying, we can get on with our lives, without added worry and stress.

  • I chose the right law firm and I know our future is on the proper course because of Onyx. I wouldn’t hesitate to tell anyone who needs good legal representation to take my words to heart.
