Biography

Bill has been helping resolve civil litigation matters for more than 30 years. His practice covers a wide range of disputes including commercial, insurance and estate matters.

He works with clients to bring claims against insurance companies when they refuse to pay benefits under a policy, such as life, disability and fire insurance. Bill brings to these cases the tenacity and commitment they demand.

Bill’s insurance work also includes representing individuals who are injured as a result of negligence of others, such as in motor vehicle accidents or falls on unsafe property. He has successfully handled cases involving a broad range of injuries, extending from soft tissue and orthopaedic to psychological and neurological, as well as wrongful death. He ensures all details and facts are covered and the right experts are retained in order to achieve fair and proper compensation for his clients.

His clients’ commercial disputes include lease issues between a landlord and tenant, various issues that can arise between parties to a contract, and real property disputes involving the sale and purchase of property.

Bill also effectively works on estate litigation issues involving the improper distribution of an estate. These cases are often highly emotional for the people involved and Bill strives to ensure that his clients receive the clear, objective advice they need, while pressing their case to ensure they obtain a fair result.

Bill has appeared in all levels of the courts of British Columbia, as well as  in various administrative boards and tribunals.
