Clients regularly consult Adriana from the outset of an issue to receive her assessment of the problem from a legal context. By acquiring in-depth knowledge of a client's operations, business objectives, and other factors, she is able to provide options that are relevant, contextual, and avoid legal and other risks.
Adriana believes in working as part of her client's team to ensure managers and supervisors are aware of potential pit-falls and know to seek advice in a timely way. She has developed and presented training ranging from first-line supervisory skills to more complex subjects relating to the application of human rights principles.
As an advocate, Adriana is focused and relentless. She has appeared before arbitration boards, the Labour Relations Board, the Human Rights Tribunal, and at the BC Supreme Court and Court of Appeal.
