Catherine Coakley

BA, JD - Associate

I maintain a broad litigation and dispute resolution practice with a focus on construction, personal injury, employment, and commercial litigation.

My personal injury practice is limited to representing individuals who have been injured in accidents including motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, and medical negligence. I work closely with family doctors, specialists, and allied health professionals to ensure my clients receive appropriate treatment and are fully compensated.

Prior to pursuing a career in law, I studied Political Science and Economics at the University of Victoria, and worked in the building supplies industry.

Practice Areas

Community Involvement, Hobbies, and Personal Interests

Away from the office, I enjoy exploring the city with my husband and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy playing and watching soccer, following current events, and trying out new restaurants and craft breweries.
