With a personable approach, Maris works with strata corporations and property managers to resolve issues and concerns in the communities our clients call home.

While she was just beginning her legal practice, Maris was an active owner in her Vancouver condo. She attended strata meetings and helped advance major building projects, learning about the processes and challenges strata corporations face. This inspired her to get more involved in Strata Property law. She understands the stress owners often face and applies a practical legal perspective to find workable solutions that provide relief.

Maris helps our clients through a myriad of issues, including noise, smoking, alterations, privacy issues, pets, bylaw and rule drafting, building maintenance and resolutions.
