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 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 began his legal career in the areas of insurance law, personal injury law, and commercial litigation. He now focuses his practice on Canadian law for Indigenous peoples (Aboriginal law) and Indigenous legal orders (Indigenous law), especially in the revitalization of Indigenous law and writing law and policy on behalf of First Nations governments.
Mark has represented clients at all levels of court in British Columbia (Provincial Court, Supreme Court, and Court of Appeal), as well as before Administrative Tribunals, the Federal Court and Federal Court of Appeal, and the Court of King’s Bench in Saskatchewan. He now mostly appears in Court and in Circles on child protection matters on behalf of First Nations governments and individuals.
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.
Jeff was the past President of the Vernon Bar Association, a past Director of both the North Okanagan Employment Enhancement Society (NOESS) and the United Way as well as a current Director of The People Place.
Jeff will be missed by his two boys, family, friends and colleagues.
