Time Limits and Final Advice
Note that some legal matters are more urgent or have strict time limits. For example, if you have been served with legal documents you often must file a response within a strict time frame.
Failure to do so can result in adverse legal consequences. If your matter is urgent and you are concerned about time frames, please call our office at 250-824-1255 to explain your situation. We may be able to obtain a more urgent appointment date for you.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
