Who We Are

Welcome to a law firm that has a carefully crafted legal culture like no other. The seeds for DD Law Group were planted when Rob Dhanu and Uphar Dhaliwal decided to step away from secure legal careers to create a firm with a real life approach to law. From humble origins with our first office in the gritty Downtown Eastside of Vancouver to evolving into a flagship Fraser Valley law firm – DD Law Group has come a long way. This journey was possible due to an unwavering focus on a client-centred philosophy where the results spoke for themselves and word of mouth did the rest.

Advantages of

We wanted more from the law and so should you. That’s why we created a law firm with a real life approach formulated to bring you the best possible results with the least amount of stress and expense. Welcome to a powerful client-centred philosophy that turns our passion for people into advantages for you.

We understand that legal issues in one area of the law can quickly spill over into other legal arenas. You need to know if admitting civil liability could assist a criminal prosecution or if your criminal case could lead to civil, family or immigration repercussions. Real life legal solutions means having access to lawyers under one roof with experience in a wide range of legal fields. That means no running around trying to find the right lawyers to answer your questions when you are most stressed and can least afford it. Whatever your legal issue, chances are we have a lawyer just down the hall who can provide the right advice which saves you time, money and stress.

Before joining DD Law Group, our lawyers were employed by big government, big corporations and big downtown law firms.  We have dealt with everything from large scale civil litigation and complicated divorce settlements to sophisticated drug conspiracies and high stakes immigration board hearings.  Real life legal solutions means having the experience to identify the correct legal issues, to develop a legal strategy on the front end and to see that strategy through.  Actually having a game plan from the outset that you understand means less stress, greater efficiency and reduced cost.  And if you are not completely satisfied with a result, we have the experience to appeal your case to the highest levels of court.

Lawyers traditionally focus on legal issues rather than the individuals behind them. We firmly believe that your story is a powerful tool that can define the narrative of a case and help you achieve the best possible legal result. We not only want to know your story, we want to help you shape where it leads. Real life legal solutions means working hard to identify and deal with the reasons your life intersected with the law in the first place. Where appropriate, we will work to address these real life issues through our trusted network of counsellors, doctors and other professionals. This allows us to build a powerful narrative to advocate on your behalf. At the same time, it allows for the possibility to effect powerful and positive change in your real life.

Legal cases are not just won by lawyers. They often require doctors, counsellors, health care workers, private detectives and other professionals with specialized knowledge. We rely upon a trusted network of professionals who not only have the ability to help you in your real life but who can also turn what appears to be a losing case into a winning one. Real life legal solutions means that you won’t be on your own when it comes to securing appropriate and quality professional help both for you and your legal matter.

We pride ourselves on a legal team that treat one another like an extended family rather than mere work colleagues. We want you to share in the unique culture we have developed. Real life legal solutions means dealing with a firm whose lines of communication are always open when a question or issue arises. We always endeavour to ensure you are not left in the dark or feeling alone when urgent matters require our attention. This atmosphere of openness is why the relationships we forge with our clients often continue long after a file is closed.

We understand that legal cases often arise unexpectedly and lead to unanticipated expense. This can be a significant stress piled upon the already stressful nature of your legal matter. Real life legal solutions means offering a variety of fee structures, payment plans and competitive rates that work for you.
