Jim practices in the areas of family law, estate litigation, and civil litigation. An excellent problem solver, Jim works with his clients to analyze risks and consider the cost and benefit of various courses of action before choosing a way forward. Jim often helps his clients resolve their matters through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution without the need for court proceedings; however, where necessary he is comfortable in the court room and prepared to advocate for his client to the greatest extent possible. Jim has appeared successfully before all levels of court in British Columbia.
Originally from Ontario, Jim has lived in Victoria for the better part of the last decade. Prior to studying law, he studied philosophy and mathematics and spent a year living in Germany during his graduate studies.
During his spare time Jim practices tai chi and loves being outdoors with his son and his dog Maurice.
