Emily Creighton


Emily is an associate with Access Law Group, joining Access Law Group well before her call to the bar. She first worked as a legal assistant, then became a paralegal, and returned to Access Law Group after completing her law degree. Emily has worked on a wide variety of complex civil litigation matters from start to finish. As a result, she has a unique ability to efficiently move files towards a resolution, whether that be through a trial or a negotiated settlement.

Outside of the office, Emily enjoys cycling, coffee drinking, volunteering for Special Olympics BC, and exploring BC’s great outdoors.

what our clients are saying

My Real Estate Investment Firm has engaged Jamie for several years to conduct litigation on our behalf in several “Breach of Contract” cases. We have always found Jamie to be pleasant, accommodating and diligent in follow-through on correspondence and commitments. We have also observed that he has pursued the opposition with diligence and persistence. His fees have been billed at his quoted rate. We have also found him easy to do business with, for he returns telephone calls promptly, when he is unable to answer them directly.
