Daniel Lyons Law Corp: Your local, community legal counsel

As a part of small business week, the Express is featuring local Vanderhoof businesses

Daniel grew up in Vanderhoof and after spending 3 years at UNBC chose to head to Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario to get his law degree. He also has his masters in Tax Law from the University of Toronto, which isn’t a very common degree. He is the only tax lawyer north of Kamloops. Daniel has been practicing law for over a decade now.

As is for a lot of Vanderhoofians, a series of events brought him home. He met his wife playing on the same Baseball team and was working as a lawyer in town.

Daniel chose to move back to Vanderhoof to start his own practice after working in Toronto and Calgary. During that time, he worked at an immigration firm, tax and business firms, and for an accountant.

But he soon realized that working for someone else isn’t what he wanted to do. So he decided to start his own firm.

His wife Carlina, started off as an assistant, booking appointments for him, and one day she said to her partner that she could do real estate.

“And we did. Real estate is probably our strongest now, brings in the most business.”

Other than tax law, and real estate, another big service Daniel Lyons offers is Corporate Law. They store corporate records, maintain books for corporations, start new corporations and more.

The local law firm also specializes in Wills & Estates, Probate, Separation Agreements, and Divorces.

Contact the Vanderhoof office for a consultation at 250.570.7570, or their Fort St. James office at 250.996.5060. You can also email Daniel at danlyons000@gmail.com, or Carlina at carlina.dllc@gmail.com. Visit their website at www.daniellyonslaw.com
