what our clients are saying

In June 2019, our strata became involved in a Civil Resolution Tribunal (CRT) complaint. As the strata council member assigned to respond to the complaint, I was fortunate enough to work with Kathrine Uppal at Access Law. We easily built a sound working relationship and Kathrine was able to answer any questions and concerns I had during the claim. Kathrine prepared me for working in the CRT portal and I felt confident she understood the strata’s position regarding the claim.  Kathrine was also flexible and friendly when it came to working with another counsel member during my vacation. The CRT process was a lot of work, but I felt Kathrine was part of our team and we are very grateful for her help.

In 2018 and 2019 our Strata had two CRT claims filed against it. We engaged the services of Kathrine Uppal to help us refute the claims. Although CRT regulations do not permit a lawyer to submit a response to a claim, Kathrine was extremely helpful in advising us. She guided us in selecting, organizing and submitting our evidence and in responding to the complainants’ evidence. She met with us several times and helped us draft our responses. She was able to assist us in having both claims dismissed by the CRT Tribunal. Kathrine made herself available whenever we needed her, even on weekends or in response to last minute pleas. She was always friendly, direct and professional, and we were very grateful for her assistance.
