Janet De Vita Partner


“I get to know each client so that I can make sure their specific needs are met. Helping people get what they are entitled to, when they are in pain and can’t work, is very satisfying.”

Janet is a Partner in the Personal Injury Group at Watson Goepel LLP, acting exclusively for those who have suffered an injury from an accident. She represents her clients every step of the way until the matter resolves completely. Janet has appeared before the Provincial Court of British Columbia, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Supreme Court Chambers and the British Columbia Court of Appeal, on a variety of matters. She has also helped clients successfully resolve their cases through negotiation and mediation.

Janet acts as a mentor to female lawyers through the Canadian Bar Association’s Women Lawyers Forum. When not at work, she enjoys spending time with her young family, as a hockey, soccer and dance mom.
