BC Supreme Court Cases
Cook v Cook, 2020 BCSC 389
This is a divorce case after a long, 36 year, marriage. In this this case we asked for an unequal division of family property. The unequal division is because Mr. Cook would have walked away with double the assets of Ms. Cook due to excluded property if an equal division was granted.
The judge granted 75% of savings accounts and the whole value of a property owned by the couple the Ms. Cook.

Court of Appeal Cases
Jensen v Jensen, 2019 BCCA 117
In this case, we successfully defend an appeal. The other side sought 2 decisions the trial judge made in our favour reversed.
- First, they sought to have the income imputed by our cases’ trial judge set aside. The court of appeal adopts our position that the trial judge was right to impute income to their client.
- Second, they sought to have the judge’s decision that their client pay our client’s costs overturned. The court of appeal again adopts our position that our client should be paid for being successful.

In the case of Zukanovic v. Malkoc Estate, Alma Zukanovic, daughter of the deceased, Mehmed Mike Malkoc, was excluded from her father’s Will and was disadvantaged from her father having transferred assets to his son during his lifetime, so as to further exclude Ms. Zukanovic from receiving her inheritance. The court reviewed both trust principles and Wills Variation Act principles as presented by David R. Greig from the South Coast Law Group, and Ms. Zukanovic was awarded a significant portion of her father’s estate.
