Collaborative Lawyer


Rahul helps clients resolve their family disputes, including spousal support, child support, parenting time, guardianship, protection, divorce and property settlement disputes. He strives to save his clients money and time. He understands the importance of no-court resolution in family law. Rahul works with his clients to help families find agreeable solutions out of court.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Rahul worked at the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry, headed by the Honourable Wally Oppal, Q.C. He subsequently articled with the Commission’s Senior Counsel, former President of the Law Society of BC, Art Vertlieb, Q.C., and Carol Hickman, Q.C. Working with Ms. Hickman as an Articled Student, Rahul assisted a wide range of clients, some of whom had few assets and some of whom wielded vast fortunes. Going to court made all types of clients feel like they had lost, and Rahul quickly learned the value of keeping families and children out of court. His goal is to find a process that works for his clients and allows them to reduce on-going conflict during their separation.
