Chris Massey joined the firm in 2004 and became a partner in 2009. The focus of his practice is criminal defence and personal injury/ICBC claims. Chris also has significant experience in professional disciplinary matters and other administrative hearings.
In his criminal defence practice, Chris has successfully defended clients against a wide variety of criminal charges, including drug trafficking, weapons offences, impaired driving, aggravated assault, and homicide. He has represented clients at all levels of Court in British Columbia and in the Supreme Court of Canada.
Chris has been representing clients in personal injury/ICBC claims for more than a decade. He offers free, “no obligation” consultations to discuss the process of advancing a claim and how the firm can help. Chris makes it a priority to ensure that clients have access to the therapy they need to recover from their injuries and will advocate strongly for you when it comes time to negotiate a settlement with ICBC. Chris’s practice is to take personal injury cases on a “contingency” basis, meaning you will not have to pay anything for legal services until your claim is settled.
Chris graduated from the University of Victoria Law School in 2002. From 2002 to 2003 he clerked for the Justices of the Supreme Court of British Columbia. He was called to the bar in January 2004. In addition to maintaining a busy practice, Chris has served as counsel to the 2007 Judges Compensation Commission and Victoria County Representative to the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association from 2011 to 2013. Chris sits on the board of New Hope Schools Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable community development in developing nations.
