The hallmark of Rory’s practice is keeping in close contact with his clients to ensure they develop a good understanding of the process and how they can contribute to a successful resolution of their case.
In 2011, Rory created HealthCare Victoria, a community resource of natural health care practitioners for patients. Rory understands that a key concern of his clients is to recover their health, but they often lack the guidance and resources to allow this to happen. Through his experience in working with natural health care practitioners, Rory guides his clients through the recovery process and ensures that they are not paying out-of-pocket for the treatment they need to recover their health.
Rory was a long serving Member of the Board of Governors of the Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia and contributes regularly to the education and skill development of junior lawyers in the province.
