Justice is NOT ALWAYS Blind
It is a mistake to think that the law will always protect you simply because you are in the right. Lady Justice is depicted wearing a blindfold for a reason. So while she many not see what you are wearing, she also only knows what she is told and without competent representation your story may never be told in the courtroom. Make sure you find lawyers in Kamloops who will provide you with solid representation to have your story properly put before the court.

Kim Grimwade was born in Australia and moved to Canada in her early 20s. Before taking up a life in law, Kim traveled extensively and worked in food and beverage. She also taught skiing and snowboarding for a decade. Kim became a small business owner and with her partner successfully operated that business in Kamloops for many years before selling it.
Kim undertook her studies in Psychology and graduated with a first class honours degree. She followed that education with Law, and was an inaugural member of TRU’s law program.
Kamloops is Kim’s Canadian home town and it is an area she loves not only for the outdoors, but especially because of the people who call Kamloops home.
Practicing in the areas of family law and general litigation, Kim ties her breadth of experience and education together with her teaching skills and her client’s often comment on her advanced communication skills which in turn aid them in their understanding of the process and what the road ahead of a litigation file looks like.
