Kevin Menz joined Kazlaw as an articling student in the summer of 2021 and has remained with the firm following his call to the bar in September 2022. He works primarily out of our Victoria office.
Kevin was born and raised in Saskatoon, and he spent several years as an editor and journalist in his home city before moving to Vancouver Island to study law. In Saskatoon, he served a term as editor-in-chief of the University of Saskatchewan student newspaper, The Sheaf; he reported for The StarPhoenix, the city’s largest daily newspaper; and he spent five years covering stories across Saskatchewan as a digital journalist for CTV News.
Kevin completed his law degree at the University of Victoria. During his studies, he served as an editor-in-chief of the Faculty of Law’s student-run journal, Appeal: Review of Current Law and Law Reform; he spent a semester with The Law Centre, a pro bono legal clinic run by the Faculty of Law; and he was awarded the Lawson Lundell LLP Prize in Administrative Law Process. He also spent a co-op term working for a boutique Vancouver firm specializing in class-action litigation.
Kazlaw is proud to bring his professional experience to the team. His attention to detail and his background in journalism ensures we are building the strongest cases possible and advocating for our clients in compelling and convincing ways.
Away from the office, Kevin keeps busy cycling and playing hockey.
