Frequently Asked Questions

At Sea to Sky Law, we offer DIY law services to those seeking a lawyer's assistance for specific tasks without wanting to bear heavy expenses. While our team is always ready to answer any questions you may have, you can also read through our most frequently asked questions below to see if they help. Contact us for any other queries!

How much will it cost me?

Legal matters can be unpredictable. We cannot provide exact quotes for most services as we cannot anticipate how much time may be required to assist you in advance. We understand that legal services can be costly and that our clients do not want to be surprised with large bills. We offer DIY Support Services in addition to Traditional Retainers to allow our clients to control their legal costs.

Why do you need to do a conflict check and what is it?

To best assist any client, we need to ensure there is no conflict in representing you for your legal matter. We search both you and any opposing party in our software to make sure that we have not worked on a legal matter involving any party that would create a conflict in representing you for your current legal matter.

Why do you need my ID?

The Law Society of BC requires that a lawyer verify the identity of their clients. A lawyer is obligated to know his or her client, to understand the client’s financial dealings in relation to the retainer, and to manage any risks arising from the professional business relationship with the client.

What ID can I use?

You need to provide 2 pieces of Government Issued ID; one piece of ID must have a photo, and both pieces must be valid.

Acceptable ID includes:

  • Passport

  • Nexis Card

  • BC Services Card (formerly Care Card)

  • Birth Certificate

  • BC Identification Card

  • Social Insurance Card

  • Driver’s License

  • Permanent Residency Card

Why do I have to wait to speak or meet with my lawyer?

A busy lawyer is a good lawyer. Much like your doctor or dentist, your lawyer has multiple clients and is not always available to speak with you when you phone or email. Our staff can schedule an appointment for you to speak with your lawyer or answer basic questions about your file, such as when your next court date is or if we have received an entered copy of your recent court document. 


To meet all of our clients’ needs, we set aside specific days in the lawyer’s calendar for in-person appointments so that we can leave availability to schedule court appearances in a timely manner. To best assist all of our clients, we offer phone and video appointments, as we can accommodate these types of appointments into a lawyer’s schedule much sooner than an in-person appointment.
