December 23rd, 2019 by FH&P Lawyers

FH&P Lawyers is very excited to announce the opening of our new location at 74 Wade Avenue, Penticton. This will be our second location in the South Okanagan and we are delighted to continue serving the communities we call home.

We are also welcoming a lawyer, Ian McAndrews, and a paralegal, Marni Brown, to the team in the new Penticton office. Ian brings 29 years of experience in family law, civil litigation, criminal prosecutions, and foreclosures to the table.

After first coming to the Okanagan in 1973 and eventually becoming Service Manager in the automotive industry, Ian decided to start a new challenge and attend law school at UBC in Vancouver. In 1990, he was called to the bar.

When he isn’t working for the community, you can find Ian cycling in group road rides on Wednesday and Saturday mornings as well as on local trails with his two dogs, Harold (a Black Labrador) and Abby (a Chocolate Labrador).
