Valerie moved from the Old Port of Montreal to downtown Vancouver for love.
Prior to Law School, which she thought would be a great escape from the maze of literary studies, Valerie gained experience as a teaching assistant and lecturer, honing her ability to "read the room" and communicate with care and empathy.
As she rapidly discovered how fascinating Family Law and Estate Litigation could be, Valerie became involved as a researcher and writer for the Private Law Dictionary on Successions at the Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law at McGill Faculty of Law.
Valerie feels privileged and thrilled to join the DuMoulin Boskovich LLP team as an articled student for 2022 and get as much experience as she can in Family Law, Estate and Civil Litigation.
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.
