“I strive to establish a personal connection with our clients by taking time to listen to their stories, understand their needs, and provide tailored advice to help navigate the present, and prepare for the future.”
Joe is an Associate in our Business Law Group. With a general business law practice, Joe has a particular focus on wills, trusts, and estate matters for a variety of clients across a number of sectors.
Prior to his move to BC, Joe studied and practiced as a lawyer in Saskatchewan and as a mediator via the mentorship program offered by the Dispute Resolution Office of the Government of Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice. Joe maintains his connection to Saskatchewan as a sessional instructor with the University of Saskatchewan College of Law, where he teaches Negotiation to upper-year law students. Joe is also a guest lecturer at the U of S in Wills & Estates, in addition to coaching the College of Law competitive student moot teams. Joe’s mediation and negotiation students have competed across Canada and at the international level, most recently in Paris, Berkeley CA, and Chicago.
Prior to his legal career, Joe spent 20 years in the media industry with CBC Radio Two and other creative organizations, primarily in live music recording and broadcast.
When not working, Joe likes to continue his long-standing interest in music, albeit now from the audience perspective as a regular concertgoer and slightly obsessive record-collector.
