Our experience,
is your asset.

Our focus is on relationship breakdowns or legal disputes, also referred to as litigation, which often entails two parties fighting over money and/or property. Relationship breakdowns are never easy and frankly can get quite messy given the highly charged emotional environments these disputes play out in. The disputes we handle include the area of family law; more particularly, between husband and wife or common law spouses, typically involving parenting time and responsibilities, child support, spousal support, asset division, protection orders, amongst other issues.

We also deal with disputes between individuals and/or companies, including family members or business partners, involving breaches of real estate agreements, deficient construction, disputes pertaining to land development, disputes between tenants and landlords

to commercial leases, provision or receipt of defective goods, breach of debt/loan agreements, general breach of contract, misrepresentation, breach of duty, shareholder oppression, and other general commercial matters. The aforementioned areas of practice also include matters pertaining to builders’ liens, certificates of pending litigation and foreclosures. 

We have long practised in personal injury, representing injured parties often against large insurance corporations. We have tackled all matter of disputes from car accidents, dog bites, slip and falls, ski injuries, boating negligence sometimes involving major catastrophic life changing injuries – such as traumatic brain injuries. These insurance related matters sometimes involve breaches of insurance, examinations under oath, policy limits issues, and a host of related legal issues. We routinely deal with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia in relation to lack of benefits, coverage disputes, and related matters. 

We genuinely understand that the stresses accompanying relationship breakdowns can be debilitating, whether those breakdowns occur between spouses, family members, friends, or business partners or associates. We are here to provide you with clarity and guidance when circumstances aren’t generous enough to afford you the same. 

Family Law

We understand that relationship breakdowns can be anxiety and stress inducing and that is why we take great pride in providing our clients with the highest calibre of legal services with compassionate objectivity. This means we demystify the complexities of the law for our clients, putting them in a position where they understand how the legal process will play out practically in their specific circumstances.

The family law issues we deal with are typically between husband and wife or common law spouses, and/or their children. We represent clients with respect to divorce, separation, guardianship, parenting time and responsibilities, child support, spousal support, asset/property division, protection orders, and mobility applications. 

Issues we often find our clients facing and which we have become particularly familiar with are as follows: determination of common law rights and obligations in non-traditional relationships, for example non-cohabitating partners; exclusions to marital property division, such as property owned prior to the relationship or inheritances during the relationship; and imputation of income on individuals not earning to their capacity for the purposes of child and spousal support.

Personal Injury

Our historical personal injury practice is plaintiff only. Historically, this centered mainly on motor vehicle accident claims, police assault/brutality, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, boating and skiing negligence, wrongful death, and slip and falls. We have aided thousands of claimants through the arduous process of battling insurance companies for compensation – and continue to do so. If you have been injured due to someone else’s fault or negligence and as a result of lost enjoyment of life, income, or associated losses past or perspective please reach out for a free consultation.

Soft Tissue Injuries/Whiplash At first glance, a soft tissue injury might seem minor. People usually recover from bruises and sprains with no long-term effects.

Slip & Falls A slip-and-fall accident is potentially serious. Severe bone fractures, soft tissue injuries or a back injury may all occur in the few moments it takes to tumble over an unseen hazard.

Wrongful Death Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be emotionally devastating under normal circumstances.

At the law firm of Dosanjh Ladner Arora, we represent persons to whom ICBC has refused to pay accident benefits, claiming the driver has breached the contract of insurance. In some cases, legitimate claimants may be denied the compensation they are entitled to, and be subject to unwelcome investigative tactics by ICBC.

ICBC may deem your claim suspicious or refuse to pay on the basis of a number of factors, including possible impairment at the time of the accident, improper use or improper registration of the principal operator of the vehicle. We will listen to your case and review whether a breach has indeed occurred, and consult with you to help you navigate through the ICBC breach process and/or examination under oath process ICBC utilizes.

Police Misconduct

The services provided by the RCMP and the Vancouver and other municipal police departments are usually highly respected in the Lower Mainland community. Sometimes, however, individuals have contact with police that they believe to be inappropriate, and it prompts them to take legal action.

  • Wrongful arrest
  • Harassment

Legal action for police misconduct/negligence in B.C. usually involves suing either a municipal police department or the RCMP. A claim against an individual officer requires proving wilful gross negligence on the part of the officer.

We understand the situation can be emotionally charged, and strive to provide reasoned, objective and professional advice to potential clients about the appropriateness of taking legal action.
