"I LOVE LAW BUT THERE`S SO MUCH MORE TO IT. PEOPLE COME TO ME AT A CRITICAL POINT IN THEIR LIVES. I NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF THAT."

Carrie Ng

Carrie Ng has been a strong believer of public education from the very beginning.  While attending law school at University of Victoria, she managed and directed the Legal Information Clinic, which provided free legal information to the public.  As a project leader with Pro-Bono Students of Canada, she created pamphlets to educate at-risk youth on their Charter rights.  She continues this spirit of access to justice by volunteering her time as a supervising lawyer with the UBC Law Students’ Legal Advice Program (LSLAP).

Prior to starting her practice in the Lower Mainland, Carrie had worked with the Provincial Crown Counsel.  This experience had provided her with valuable insight into the inner workings of the prosecutorial process, allowing her to direct you through the legal system in a manner that is most advantageous to your circumstances.

Her practice exclusively in the area of criminal law provides her with extensive involvement in cases involving criminal charges under the Criminal Code, Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, and charges pursuant to the Motor Vehicle Act.  Her focused experience helps you in finding defences that are relevant and persuasive to the judge or jury.

Carrie is fluent in both English and Chinese (Cantonese).
