About The Team At Smyth & Company

Smyth & Company, Barristers and Solicitors is a family law boutique located in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. Our founder and senior lawyer, Margaret Smyth, opened the practice in 1995. We have since grown to include five lawyers and a team of skilled support staff — all dedicated to serving the needs of families throughout Metro Vancouver, including the Fraser Valley, the Sunshine Coast, the Tri-Cities area of the Lower Mainland and surrounding areas.

Over the past two decades, we have built a solid reputation among colleagues and clients. Our practice is founded on a number of core principles, including:

Integrity And Professionalism

Each member of our legal team is committed to upholding the highest standards in our work. We seek to realize the objectives of our clients in an ethical manner. We explain the facts with candour, even if this is not always easy in emotionally-charged situations. By providing frank advice, we help our clients set realistic expectations and pursue the best possible outcome.

Client Satisfaction In A Supportive Environment

We want every client to benefit from our services and make it successfully through their legal matter. We realize that futures are at stake. We do our utmost to go above and beyond as an ally, guide and advocate for each client. We take the time to listen carefully, answer questions, educate our clients and help them address their specific needs and concerns.

Collaboration And Shared Expertise

Within our boutique firm setting, we provide clients with an optimal combination of expertise and value. We offer a range of hourly rates, with options to fit each client's circumstances and budget.

Our lawyers regularly work in a collegial manner, sharing among each other a depth and breadth of legal and life experience. We discuss approaches to cases, the latest legal developments, insights gained from continuing education and skills as negotiators and litigators. This team approach is one reason why we continue to generate creative, pragmatic solutions for our clients year after year.
