Janet has been a practicing lawyer in Vancouver since 1993. She joined the Lookout Board in 2014. Janet practices in a wide range of areas, mainly on a consulting basis to other lawyers, and with a primary focus on complex civil litigation and appellate work. Apart from her paid legal work, she has a strong interest in social justice issues and has maintained a pro bono practice over the years, volunteering with a number of free legal clinics and providing advice and assistance on behalf of people who cannot afford legal services. Janet's time on Lookout's Board has included committee work on expansion of the organization and privacy law matters, and her special interests include legal issues relevant to the immense challenges of combating the current opioid crisis.
She is proud to be associated with Lookout's outstanding staff and humbled every day by the dedication they bring to the job and the many successes they achieve in pursuing solutions to homelessness and helping so many of the most vulnerable people in our communities.
