  • My Bio

    Amos has cultivated a career specializing in insurance related litigation. His expertise includes a range of insurance related matters including personal injury, property damage, professional liability and coverage issues.

    Clients and opposing counsel can expect Amos to reach out promptly to ensure a file moves along swiftly and efficiently. At the outset, Amos conducts a thorough review of the all information available. In his experience, the key documents and pieces of information aren’t always the obvious ones—it’s often something seemingly insignificant that can turn a case.

    Amos has always enjoyed oral advocacy, whether in mediation or in the courtroom. He relishes the challenge of combining legal skills with diplomacy and persuasion. Strong preparation, a conversational style, and knowing a file inside and out are the keys to Amos’s—and his clients’ success.

  • What is your favourite location to travel in BC?

    Nelson and the Kootenays  – friendly people, jaw dropping scenery and turn of the century charm make Nelson one of my favorite work destinations. The opportunity to appear in the region’s historic courthouses especially makes me look forward to returning.

  • What do your friends need to know before starting work as an insurance defence lawyer?

    Insurance defence work can be incredibly diverse. Be prepared to investigate and assess a technical construction design claim one day while mediating a personal injury action the next.

  • What is your perfect meal?

    The bistro lunch – best eaten outdoors with good friends and family who don’t have to be anywhere for a while. A pitcher of dry table wine; red for winter but otherwise rose. Toothsome fresh bread topped with butter and sea salt. The main course is steak tartare coarsely chopped and tossed with tart pickles. Dessert is an espresso or, perhaps more likely, another glass of wine.
