In 1990 I entered private practice, as a sole practitioner. Realizing the need to market and promote my legal services I authored various newspaper columns in several publications throughout the Fraser Valley, under the name “Under Appeal”.
These columns ran consistently for over ten (10) years with my picture appearing next to the column wearing my trademark fedora. As a result, I became known throughout the lower mainland of B.C. as the, “lawyer with the hat”.
