Ken has a unique understanding of the disability community combined with his expertise in the area of estates and trusts law to serve families with disabilities. He is extremely passionate and a strong advocate for both the disability and seniors communities and greatly appreciates the opportunity to give back to these important groups. In this regard, Ken has served on numerous boards and committees over the past 30 years with a focus on disability and seniors issues.

One of Ken’s biggest passions over the past many years has been in the area of home care supports and specifically, the Choices for Support In Independent Living program (“CSIL”). Ken has been at the forefront in leading the community negotiation with the BC government which resulted in two recent rate increases for the CSIL program culminating in over $25 million being allocated to the home care community in British Columbia. Ken was also recognized for his service to the community with the distinguished honour of receiving the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012.
Outside of the legal field, Ken’s diverse portfolio includes serving as a publicly appointed board member of the College of Chiropractors of BC, and is Past-Chair of the Province of BC’s Emergency Medical Assistants Licensing Board which he led during the period of 2011 to 2017.
