Derek McManus, MA (Economics), J.D. (Juris Doctor)

Solicitor and Notary Public

Derek has been practising law since 1975.

The early years of his career were spent in Alberta, until 1981, when he began to practise law in Salmon Arm, BC.

Experience is the  most valuable asset of a lawyer.   Of all the lawyers in the  Salmon Arm area  who concentrate their legal expertise, experience and time on non-court legal matters, none have been in practice as long as Derek.
