During his career, Sumit has had the privilege and honour of working with and learning from some of the most respected lawyers in British Columbia. He was called to the bar in British Columbia on April 15, 2011 and commenced his career with a law firm with offices in Vancouver, Surrey, Fort St. John and Kelowna. Sumit was promoted to a managing associate role and assisted with the opening and running of one of the offices.
A fierce and respectable advocate, Sumit has obtained tremendous experience in all levels of Court in British Columbia. He regularly appears in Provincial Court and Supreme Court throughout the Province. He has appeared in the British Columbia Court of Appeal and the Federal Court of Appeal of Canada. Outside of BC, he has appeared in the Court of Queens Bench in Alberta and the Supreme Court of Yukon. He appears in Court houses throughout the province.
In 2014, Sumit joined a large law firm with offices in Vancouver and Langley where he built a busy practise and continued to work for clients in the areas of Family, Immigration and Criminal Law.
Sumit has been in recovery from addiction since March 2, 2017. Addiction almost ended his life. It took him away from his beautiful wife and two children. He has personally experienced what his clients feel and deal with – and these experiences have given him perspective and a deeper level of empathy for others. Sumit draws on his own struggles and life to advocate robustly for his clients.
In April 2020, Sumit joined Origin Law Group and represents clients exclusively in the areas of Family and Immigration Law. He is an invaluable member of the team and is intimately involved with the development of Origin Law Group.
Outside of law, Sumit is the founder of the #liveBIG Society, which is a not-for-profit organization that raises awareness about addiction. The #liveBIG Society raises funds and assists people suffering from addictions to attend treatment centres and aftercare/monitoring programs.
Sumit spends his free time with his amazing family and friends. He loves to play sports and read books. Sumit and his sons especially love football – where Sumit takes an active role as a volunteer coach with the White Rock Titans.
