Jacqueline A. Small
Vancouver Personal Injury Lawyer
*Partner, Holness Law Group
I am a Partner at Holness Law Group where my law practice is restricted to personal injury litigation in providing legal representation to and advocating for the injured against ICBC and other insurance companies.
I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Pre-Law Political Science from Washington State University and a Bachelor of Laws from the University of British Columbia. Prior to joining Holness Law Group, I completed my articles at a prominent medical malpractice law firm followed by practicing as an associate for several years at one of the province’s leading insurance law firms where I represented ICBC and other private insurance companies while defending against personal injury claims. Through my past experience as defence counsel, I gained extensive knowledge of ICBC’s strategies and inner practices which has proven to be valuable to my clients when advocating for their rights and interests against ICBC.
I am a former dual sport collegiate athlete. I represented Washington State University on the women’s varsity tennis team during my undergraduate degree competing in the Pac-10 Conference against a number of the top tennis programs in the country. While attending law school, I represented the University of British Columbia (UBC) on the women’s varsity rugby team. Following law school graduation and my call to the Bar of British Columbia, I continued playing rugby for approximately a decade during which time I was the captain of the womens’ rugby program at the Meraloma Rugby Club in Vancouver competing in the premier division and I represented British Columbia on the provincial rugby team in national competition. The skills I learned and utilized during my years of competitive athletics such as work ethic, commitment, adaptability and the ability to perform well under pressure are valuable assets which I consistently rely on in my law practice.
I spend my time outside of the office with my partner and our young children (Mattea and Miles), as well as staying active and coaching rugby.
