Courtney AuBuchon*,

The practice of law can involve a broad range of issues, but the central feature of all client files is that there is a problem or issue that needs to be solved. To be effective, I believe that a lawyer needs to craft a solution specific to whatever issue a client is faced with. It is important to me that the approach selected best suits your needs and gets you to where you need to be as efficiently as possible. Whether you need help reaching an agreement, want to better understand your rights or want a trial to have your day in court, I am happy to work with you to accomplish your goals.

My practice includes estate administration and disputes, in which I have represented executors, beneficiaries and family members who have been disinherited. I have acted for homebuilders who have not been paid, and new homeowners who did not get what they bargained for when they signed a construction contract. I have worked with employers to form strategies to dismiss employees without creating unnecessary conflict, and I have helped employees who have been dismissed to obtain a fair settlement package. I have helped creditors to get paid and debtors to develop strategies for avoiding legal proceedings. I have successfully represented clients in provincial court, B.C. Supreme Court and the B.C. Court of Appeal.

I look forward to assisting you to obtain whatever solution you require.
