Want to live somewhere that is actually affordable so you can buy a house, explore outdoors and have time for life? Boutique law firm in beautiful Vernon, BC in the Okanagan is expanding.
Pay and benefits are competitive with Vancouver, yet the money goes so much further. A junior lawyer will earn $100,000.00 and a senior lawyer will earn $185,000.00+ to start.
No need to bring a practice - we will provide a full practice for you in ICBC (car accident) defense. You will also build a practice over time in areas such as wills and estates, family law or other fields that interest you.
Lawyers transferring from Alberta or other provinces are welcome, particularly with personal injury, insurance or litigation background.
We believe in quality over quantity and targets are reasonable. We have excellent paralegals ready to assist your practice.
You'll have your own office in our new building (moving for 2020). You can also work sometimes from home or remote since we are paperless.
We are located in the Okanagan where there is no commute, housing is very affordable (see realtor.ca--you will be amazed), and we have our own Supreme Court.
Best weather in Canada! The outdoor lifestyle in both summer and winter is unparalleled, with hiking, biking the Rail Trail, swimming in the lakes, wineries, markets, restaurants, and skiing at Silver Star, Big White and Sun Peaks in nearby Kamloops. Vancouver is only 4.5 hours away, and Calgary just 6 hours. Google the Okanagan and Vernon in particular. This area is a hidden gem.
This is an excellent place to raise a family with UBC Okanagan 30 minutes away and Okanagan College's new multi-million dollar trades center in the city.
