Associate Position

Saltwater Law is a family law firm in downtown Vancouver consisting of two lawyers and good friends,  Agnes Huang and Catherine Wong.


Both Agnes and Catherine are certified family law mediators and  collaborative divorce lawyers. In addition to family law, Agnes practices child protection law as parents’  counsel, and Catherine practices fertility and parentage law. We have built a fun and progressive work  environment and we strongly value diverse lived experiences. 


We are seeking a highly-motivated individual seeking to grow their practice and to join our team. You  are someone who:  

  • is a 2-5 year call and licensed with the LSBC. 

  • has litigation experience, preferably in family law. We are happy to discuss arrangements where  you could maintain a practice in other areas of law. 

  • has a commitment to reconciliation, and to equitable access to justice. 

  • has an understanding of family violence and practicing law with a trauma-informed lens.

  • speaks a language other than English (an asset but not essential). 

You are also someone who genuinely likes people and hearing their stories, cares about the quality of  their work, and enjoys advocacy and the practice of law. 


You will predominantly have carriage of your own family law files. There will be opportunities to also  work on child protection and fertility law files. From time to time, you may assist Agnes or Catherine on  some of their family law files.


Fee split of 50/50, with the possibility of base pay + fee split for the right candidate.


Start Date: Ideally July 1, 2024, but we are flexible.


Send your cover letter, resume, and a litigation synopsis (i.e. a bullet-pointed list  detailing your litigation experience) to Catherine Wong at by May 30, 2024. 


We’ll be reviewing applications on a rolling basis, and may conduct interviews and hire the successful candidate before the application deadline.


If you are genuinely interested, please apply early.
