The legal team from Marshall & Lamperson Law, opening a new office in Port Alberni this week.

‘New’ law firm pairs city quality with community values

Qualicum firm finds room to grow in the Alberni Valley

A brand new law office threw open its doors to the Alberni Valley Monday.

Well, new to Port Alberni, but one with deep roots in central Vancouver Island.

As a successful, community-based practice, Marshall & Lamperson has been providing an array of legal services to the Qualicum Beach and Parksville areas for more than 30 years.

Two members of the team – Bernice and Alicia – are Port Alberni residents and raised their firm’s awareness about the growing community and how Marshall & Lamperson might be able to serve a growing need, especially in areas such as real estate law (conveyancing), wills and estates, and personal injury, notes lawyer Gary Russell, who will be working from both the Port Alberni and Qualicum offices.

“Port Alberni is beautiful – mountains, Okanagan-like summers, world-class fishing and affordable living – and more people are discovering that all the time,” says Russell, whose area of practice includes real estate, end of life planning (wills, powers of attorney) and estates.

“There’s a great vibe – I really like being here.”

Joining Russell between the two offices will be Island-raised Michael Boulet, an experienced litigator who in addition to handling the firm’s litigation also works extensively in mediation, dispute resolution and personal injury, and Ryan Pringle, who works in corporate and commercial law as well as real estate.

Long-standing Qualicum Beach lawyer Doug Marshall rounds out the team, with an experienced family lawyer to join the team soon.

All are deeply involved in their local community, something they plan to bring to the Alberni Valley as well, Russell notes.

The expertise you need

With four lawyers and growing, and a talented, local support team, the full-service law firm offers the expertise you need:

  • Real Estate (buying and selling your home)
  • Personal Injury
  • Estate Administration (acting for executors)
  • Corporate and commercial law
  • General Litigation
  • Family
  • Mediation and Arbitration

“While each of us has extensive experience both in Canada and internationally, we all chose central Vancouver Island to settle and raise our families,” Russell says. “We’re thrilled to be able to extend that experience to include Port Alberni!”

Drop by the new office at 4855 Johnston Rd. and say hello, or call them today at 778-421-5615! Learn more at mllawcorp.ca.
