Civil Litigation

There are times when conflict arises and your only recourse is a lawyer.  Whether it is a dispute between neighbors, a quarrel over a will or estate, a business deal that has gone awry, debt collection, damage to property or any of the myriad of other problems that can arise between two or more parties, our lawyers can help bring resolution to the conflict.

Our lawyers have helped both plaintiffs and defendants in all levels of court from Small Claims to the Supreme Court of Canada.  Our lawyers have also successfully represented clients in front of administrative boards like the Human Rights Tribunal, Workers Compensation Appeal Board, Employment Standards Appeal Board, and the Residential Tenancy Appeal Board.

We have offices on both Salt Spring Island and in Sidney.  Contact us at the office most convenient for you.

Resources – “Do-it-Yourself” Forums

While lawyers are often employed by clients at Small Claims and in front of the Residential Tenancy Board, these forums are set-up to be more “do-it-yourself” than BC Supreme Court or Provincial Criminal and Family Court.

Court Services – Small Claims Information – this site provided by the BC Ministry of the Attorney General provides an overview of the process as well as links to the forms and rules used in Small Claims.

Residential Tenancy – This BC Government site provides essential information for both tenants and landlords.
