Assault & battery charges are of the most serious violations and can have significant implications on your freedom or liberty. Whether a threat or act of assault took place, an assault charge is taxing for both the victim and accused.

There are many different forms of assault, and physical harm does not necessarily need to occur to be accused/convicted. In fact injury does NOT have to occur for an assault charge to be placed. Because of this, not all accusations are viewed the same, and the outcome you may face depends in large part on the competencies of the lawyers behind you.

With British Columbia’s statutory requirement for will makers to provide for a spouse and child, obligations and entitlement have become progressively complicated and divisive.

It’s often believed that insurance providers, or plan administrators, have the last word when it comes to disability benefits.

Injuries from motorcycle accidents tend to be far more serious than an average car accident, primarily because of the lack of protection a motorcyclist has when riding. Many motorcycle accidents occur because the other driver wasn’t paying adequate attention to the road or the vehicles around them.

Like motorcyclists, cyclists have substantially less protection than the drivers that collide with them. It’s not unusual for a cyclist to be seriously injured when hit by a motor vehicle, so it is extremely important that cyclists receive legal counsel in the aftermath of an accident.

Accidents caused by drivers hitting pedestrians are all too common, even when the pedestrian has the right of way. This has a lot to do with distracted driving, which ultimately means the driver is accountable for the accident. However, driver negligence must still be proven and the stakes are often high, given that the injuries sustained by the pedestrian are likely to be serious.

Being out on the open water can make one feel as though they are free of rules or restrictions. Nevertheless, the rule of law still applies and boaters are required to maintain safe behavior.

Protecting human rights is fundamental to a just society and all individuals living in British Columbia deserve the right to equal treatment.
