Meet James Fitzmaurice

James Fitzmaurice spent most of his growing up years in Vancouver, where he also took his law training. It was his law education that first brought him to Smithers in 2008 to work as a summer student for a local law firm. James, a fisherman and lover of the outdoors, felt an immediate connection to the area. Upon graduating from law school at UBC, he knew that Smithers was where he wanted to start his professional career.

James worked for another firm in Smithers for a few years and then decided that it was time to challenge himself. So he opened up his own law firm in 2013 and has been helping locals with their legal needs ever since.

James, who is the father of two young children, appreciates the security that living in a small town provides for a family. "It's safe here," he says. "I'm able to give my kids a better quality of life here than they could have in a big city." The lower cost of living is an added bonus of Smithers living. Most of all, James feels that he is able to make a bigger difference in a small town like Smithers than in a big city. "You feel more like a part of a whole rather than a single person plugging away alone," he notes.
