Jeff was born in Toronto, Ontario and moved west following his graduation from York University, in the area of physical geography. After living in Europe for four years, he returned to Canada to earn his law degree with the University of Saskatchewan. After graduating in 2008, he moved to Kamloops to article with Fulton & Company LLP. He was called to the Law Society of British Columbia in 2009, and spent four years in civil litigation practice, primarily dealing with land-related dispute, and local governments.
In 2013, Jeff was hired by Epp Cates Oien (as Cates Ford Oien Epp was previously known) and broadened his practice to include family law and child protection matters. The inherent collegiality of the local family bar and the various opportunities to explore alternate dispute resolution processes such as Judicial Case Conferences, Family Case Conferences, and mediations, have already guided Jeff’s sensibilities towards the benefits of collaborative family law practice. His goal is to help parties and parents take a fair-minded and child-centred approach to divorce and separation and reduce the conflicts that can often happen from miscommunication.
