Legal Assistant: Harmony Pastoor

Believing in a client-centered approach to the law, I work to develop in-depth knowledge of my clients' situation in order to help them take proper action for their unique objectives. My aim is to provide prompt and cost-efficient solutions to clients' legal problems with the highest quality of professionalism.


My client relationships are based on trust and dependability. Peace of mind comes with knowing that your affairs are looked after and legal rights protected with quality, professionalism and expertise. The solutions we find should minimize the impact of your legal problem and enable you to bring your attention back to achieving goals in other areas of your life.


I practice civil litigation with a particular focus in the areas of Wills and Estates, Real Estate, Construction, Commercial and Corporate Litigation. I have successfully represented clients in a broad range of civil disputes in all levels of court in the province, including the Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and Provincial Court of British Columbia. I aim to use my experience and knowledge in litigation strategy and trial advocacy to help clients advance and protect their rights when faced with complex legal disputes.


I have worked in Central America with Canadian Lawyers Abroad, Lawyers without Borders and the Guatemalan Human Rights Law Office on high-profile war crimes prosecutions, and continue to use my fluency in Spanish to assist Spanish-speaking clients with litigation matters both locally and abroad. 


Born and raised in the lower mainland, I have an intimate knowledge of my community and the concerns of this rapidly growing area. The legal landscape is shifting in BC and I am constantly looking for new ways to increase the quality of legal service while keeping costs down. Staying at the forefront of advances in the law, I am keen to use the latest developments in law to provide creative solutions to your problems.
