Jim joined Holbrook Family Law in March 2020. Jim previously practiced law in Alberta at a general practice firm for over 7 years as a senior associate with an emphasis in Family Law and Civil Litigation.

Jim has represented clients on many complex family law and civil matters appearing regularly in the different levels of Court. Jim has also completed extensive training in Mediation and alternative dispute resolution strategies and applies these skills when helping clients resolve matters outside of Court. Jim’s common-sense approach to advocacy and resolving disputes has earned him the respect of colleagues and opponents and produced favourable results for his clients.

In addition to private practice, Jim enjoys spending time with his wife Samantha and their three young sons enjoying the outdoors, travelling, learning new things and working out in the early mornings before the boys wake up. Jim also speaks French and Tagalog (“Filipino”), which he learned while volunteering in the Philippines from 2002 to 2004.
