GENERAL CONSULTATIONS

Oftentimes, people are not sure about whether they need a lawyer or the exact category of law that their unique circumstances fall into. We will help you making that decision.

MUNICIPAL LAW

Our lawyers have experience in defending individuals and businesses when in disputes with municipal governments.

Tenancy Law

Renting a residential property can lead to a wide range of legal issues. At DNL, we help our clients understand their rights and responsibilities arising from a tenancy, regardless of the situation they find themselves in.

Starting with the BC Residential Tenancy Act and your tenancy agreement, our legal team can assist you to get the results you want to resolve your tenancy, whether you are the landlord or the tenant and their agents including property managers.

The most common situation you may need help with is an eviction, but there are many other tenancy situations that can quickly turn into bigger problems without legal help, from making payments, to maintenance, to complaints from the neighbours or strata.

If you need assistance with your tenancy situation, book a consultation with us today.

Law is a complicated matter that can lead to serious legal situations if you ignore it.
Let us help you.

    Our Social Commitment

    We are part of our community. People, history, future, and culture are important to us because they help us shape the way we connect with our clients and our team. Each of our lawyers has volunteered countless hours to local communities and people that need help in difficult times. In British Columbia, we focus on helping communities embrace trust and transparency. The fact that customer service, client satisfaction, and work-life balance are key elements of our business model, projects our commitment to help our team, neighbors, and clients engage in their goals and values.

    Our Beliefs

    We believe in building trust and relationships, diversification of ideas, people, and experiences. We believe in being forward-thinking, unique, and creative. We believe in our work, the good practice of law, and what we can do for you.  Defining what is a win for you; not for us or generally, but what works for our clients. Only then can we achieve success for them.

    Our Processes

    At DNL, we rely on the innovation of our internal processes to provide our team and clients the best interaction and legal experience, but we do not do so at the cost of human interaction and connection. Technology is a defining factor for the firm, not the defining of our business.

    Our Events

    We encourage social interaction within our team and our clients to strengthen relationships, create connections, and strategic partnerships. We value real-life experiences and memories. One of our most valuable celebrations is the “ Competition of Awesomeness” where we create fun challenges like pinball, pumpkin carving, rappelling, and laser tag within our team to improve teamwork and bonding. Come and have a look at the personalized trophy to see who has won what.

    • “My family and I would wholeheartedly recommend Dean Davison and Jennifer Cao of Davison Law Group for your legal needs. We had two different lawyers before we went to Dean and Jennifer, and they were much more responsive and effective than our previous two lawyers. They also communicated with great clarity and we were well informed every step of the process. In the end they helped us reach a great settlement, but more than that they validated our cause. We would use them again if we have any future legal needs. Thank you to Dean and Jennifer.”
