Sandy joined the KazLaw team in 2016 after having worked for more than a decade as defence counsel in aviation, medical malpractice, motor vehicle, occupiers’ liability (slips and falls), and historical sexual abuse claims. Sandy now acts exclusively for injured plaintiffs and their families in these same areas of practice, but her years of experience for defendants gives her a unique perspective as an injury lawyer. In each area, Sandy’s practice focuses on complex and catastrophic injury claims involving significant non-pecuniary and economic losses arising from traumatic brain injuries, psychological injuries (including post-traumatic stress disorder), orthopedic injuries, burn injuries, lost limbs, and chronic pain conditions.
Alongside Marc Kazimirski, Sandy is an adjunct professor at the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Law, teaching one of the first personal injury courses to be available at a Canadian law school.
In her spare time Sandy is a committed volunteer to the local legal community. She is a Past President of the Vancouver Bar Association and a Past President of the Lawyers’ Inn Society. She is also a regular columnist for The Lawyers’ Daily; her published articles are found in PDF below. Outside of law, Sandy enjoys spending time with her husband, Troy, and their rescue dog, a Border Collie-Chihuahua-Beagle-cross named Lady.
