Ian Hawes*

"I am very approachable and work hard to find practical solutions to the legal needs of my clients."


I believe in giving back to my community. I am a current board member of the North Okanagan Youth & Family Services Society and am a past president of both the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce and the Vernon Regional Airport Corporation, and have sat on a number of other boards in various capacities. Growing up, my children both played ringette (a great sport, by the way), so I was very involved in that sport as a board member coach and, even today, a referee.
