Heather R. White
Heather White graduated from the University of Saskatchewan Faculty of Law in 2016 and was called to the British Columbia Bar in 2017. Prior to law school, she obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology from Simon Fraser University in 2013.
Heather currently practices primarily in the areas of will, estate, and inheritance litigation, plaintiff personal injury law, and general litigation. She also has experience in criminal law, municipal law, and WorkSafeBC worker compensation claims.
Heather prides herself on being approachable with a clear communication style while providing practical legal advice and ensuring her clients understand the legal process and their options at all stages of their case.
Heather currently volunteers with the Nanaimo Citizens Advocacy Association, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to advocating for individuals who seek assistance. While in law school, Heather volunteered at a community-based legal clinic providing free legal assistance to low- income clients, called CLASSIC (Community Legal Services for Saskatoon Inner City). Heather has also assisted with the residential school claims, and volunteered with the Elizabeth Fry Society at the Downtown Community Court in Vancouver, BC, which is a project aiming to address the root causes of criminal behaviour.
When not practicing law, Heather enjoys travelling, being outdoors, hiking, kayaking, archery, and learning jiu jitsu.
