Jennifer has experience representing clients on a variety of criminal and quasi-criminal matters at the Provincial Court, Supreme Court and Court of Appeal levels. She has clients throughout British Columbia and regularly appears in court on their behalf to defend them against charges such as impaired driving, weapons charges, drug charges, assault charges and fraud charges. She has represented accused persons in court on matters ranging from first-degree murder to driving while prohibited. Jennifer also maintains an extensive administrative law practice focusing on 90-Day Immediate Roadside Prohibitions under the Motor Vehicle Act.
