Janis joined Onyx Law Group in 2012 as the firm’s first articled student and is now a Senior Associate lawyer with a practice dedicated to estate litigation.

Having practiced in both family and estate litigation since 2012, and exclusively in estate litigation since 2017, Janis understands the intersections and complexities of both areas of law. In particular, Janis has extensive knowledge and experience in complex estate litigation cases dealing with matters such as wills variation, unjust enrichment, undue influence, lack of capacity, resulting trust, constructive trust, and breach of fiduciary duty.

Janis is passionate about estate litigation and is known for her skillful application of the law to help her clients achieve fairness. She has appeared before the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal of British Columbia. 

Janis holds a law degree from the University of British Columbia, and a science degree from Simon Fraser University.

Outside of the practice of law, Janis loves riding her bike and tending to her numerous plants.

I am always looking for the fair and just outcome in every case I take on. I work tirelessly to achieve my client’s best result, taking care to work with them to create a tailored solution that suits them best, be it via negotiation, mediation, or trial.
