Why Work With Us?

Kelowna and Penticton are the jewels of the Okanagan as a four-season playground for both adults and children. In the summer, enjoy golfing, cycling, finding that breathtaking waterfall on a hike, or just simply sit on the beaches of Okanagan Lake to unwind. In the winter, ski one of the many world-class mountain resorts, then in the spring and fall enjoy a glass of wine on a patio at any of the renowned wineries.

FH&P Lawyers allows you and your family to experience all of that and more, promoting an outstanding work-life balance. We are proud of the fun-loving, hard-working culture we have developed and are not your typical stuffy law firm. We are a family-oriented firm and genuinely enjoy each other’s company.
