While in law school, Eric was on the board of directors of the UBC Law Review, the faculty’s student-run academic journal. He received the McCarthy Tetrault Prize for achieving the highest standing in Property Law.

Sam was born and raised in the Fraser Valley and is delighted to be able to practice law and assist members in his community. Sam is fluent in both English and Punjabi.

Prior to attending law school, Sam completed his Bachelor of Arts in Criminology. As a part of his degree, Sam completed a field practice with a large firm in Langley, BC. This ultimately convinced him to pursue a career in law.

He thereafter decided to go "down under" and attend law school in Gold Coast, Australia at Bond University where he obtained his Juris Doctor Law Degree. Bond University provided a practical approach to education with their legal skills program. This allowed Sam to participate in mediations, client interviews, hearings before a judge, and draft legal documents. The practical education received at Bond University has helped Sam assist his clients with their legal needs.

Sam can assist clients with wills and estate planning, probate and administration of estates, drafting documents and agreements for corporate clients and real estate transactions.

Sam was called to the Bar of British Columbia in September 2018. He joined Valley Law Group LLP as an associate in 2019.

In his spare time, Sam enjoys playing sports, spending time with family and friends, and travelling. After having the privilege of playing youth soccer overseas in England and Australia, Sam has continued to play in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League at the Premier level with a local Surrey club team. He has given back to the sport by coaching the youth within the club.
