Mark G. Carter joined DuMoulin Boskovich LLP in 2021. Prior to entering the legal profession, he worked for nine years as a private investigator, conducting investigations on behalf of individuals, companies, and institutions. He began his legal career working in insurance defence and later in personal injury, commercial litigation, and Canadian law for Indigenous peoples, often called Indigenous law.
Mark was among the first contingent to graduate law school at the University of Toronto with a Certificate in Aboriginal Legal Studies. He is a former Senior Editor and Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Aboriginal Law Journal (now the Indigenous Law Journal) – Canada’s only law journal dedicated exclusively to Indigenous legal issues.
Mark is currently working on behalf of Indigenous individuals and institutions on a variety of matters, including asserting Indigenous jurisdiction over child and family services, class actions regarding harm caused by environmental damage, and various contraventions of the Indian Act.
Mark has successfully represented clients at all levels of court in British Columbia – Provincial Court, Supreme Court, and Court of Appeal – as well as before administrative tribunals.
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our Friend, Colleague and Partner at Law, Jeffrey Boschert on January 19, 2022. Jeff was the Managing Partner of the Vernon Office of DuMoulin Boskovich LLP. Jeff had extensive experience in his field which included over 25 years in Real Estate Development. Jeff assisted his clients in every stage of the development process.
Jeff grew up on Vancouver Island. He earned his Bachelor of Arts at the University of British Columbia and his Bachelor of Law at the University of Victoria. Jeff was called to the Bar in 1995 and began his career in Victoria with the Firm, Crease Harman. Jeff went on to work as in-house legal counsel for a major strata-titled rental pool resort development on Vancouver Island before moving to Vernon. Jeff joined Davidson Lawyers LLP in 2002 where he was an Associate and Partner for 18 years. Jeff then joined forces with DuMoulin Boskovich LLP to open their second location in Vernon.
